Laminar flow hoods go by a few different names, including laminar flow cabinets, laminar flow workstations, or laminar flow clean benches. They rely on either horizontal laminar airflow or vertical laminar airflow. Laminar flow hoods are used in various fields when the main goal is to protect the work surface, product or equipment on the work surface from particulate contamination.
With the narcotics epidemic reaching the highest number ever recorded in twelve months, it has become more important than ever to protect law enforcement officers and first responders from accidental exposure. Using the Purair® SafeSEARCH enclosure while searching confiscated items, bagging evidence or examining packages or letters helps ensure personnel safety no matter the application.
One essential component of molecular biology is Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR). It allows scientists to quickly reproduce identical genetic material from small segments of DNA and is extremely sensitive and susceptible to contamination.
Both laminar flow hoods and ductless fume hoods are designed to be installed almost anywhere without added installation costs. They are easy to operate, economical, and environmentally friendly. There are, however, some key differences.
Mailroom workers, forensic technicians, law enforcement agencies and government offices are just a few of the areas that should use proper equipment to protect workers against possible exposure to harmful toxins encountered during searches.
