Laminar flow Hood, clean bench and biosecurity cabinets

A laminar flow cabinet, laminar flow chamber or laminar flow hood is an enclosure that employs a fan to force air through a HEPA or ULPA filter and provide clean air to the working area free of particles up to 0.1 microns. This type of equipment is usually manufactured in prismatic form with a single free face (the front) that gives access to the interior, where the work surface is located, which normally remains clean and sterile.
Inside these cabins or hoods you work with semiconductor wafers, cell cultures or any other system that must be kept clean and should avoid contamination with tiny particles. These cabins are designed to provide clean and constant air at an air flow rate of 0.3 to 0.5 meters per second to sweep the surface of the work area and prevent particle suspension and possible contamination of the samples. The air is injected into the working area through a HEPA or ULPA filter and inflated in the form of a laminar flow or unidirectional flow, very smooth, towards the user.

Process of using biological Safety Cabinets

They are those tools that allow to obtain a sterile and safe area for any need that is required within a laboratory. They can be: Horizontal and Vertical. Basically, it constitutes a space which, by means of a specific air treatment, allows working in an area with a strict control of non-viral particles.

This type of equipment is used for certain processes where extreme contamination control is required.

Normally, these systems are used for microbiological control procedures, packaging process, sterile filling, etc. but in no way should they be used for processes involving strains of contaminating biological agents, whether known or unknown. For these cases there are biological safety cabinets, prepared for the protection of the product / process, the operator and the environment.
