Do you know what is the difference among fume hood, laminar flow cabinet and biological safety cabinet?
There are special fume hoods for perchloric acid and radioisotopes. Ensure that the appropriate hood is used for each specific reaction or process involving specific chemicals. There are also different types of hoods to for biological samples.
Fume hood : Protect you from fumes you are working with. The fan sucks in the air toward the duct inside of the fume hood towers the outside. This system works only if you bring the hood’s door down at least 2/3 of the way. The narrower the opening, the swifter the air.
Laminar flow cabinet: Protect your samples from contamination coming from your and the room. The air is blown at you.
Biological safety cabinet: Protect you, your samples and your environment from particulate contamination. They are NOT designed for harsh or radio-labelled chemicals. To be used for work with low to moderate risk agents NOT with high-risk pathogens. HEPA( High Efficiency Particulate Air) is the essential component of these cabinets.
