Laminar Flow Hoods Ensure Contaminant-Free Workspaces
Laminar Flow Hoods and Laminar Flow Clean Benches provide important protection for your products and processes. These vital laboratory items maintain unidirectional, HEPA-filtered airflow in work areas where sensitive procedures and investigations are performed. Although not necessarily designed to protect the operator, these devices excel at ensuring a contamination-free mini-environment within the workspace of the hood or cabinet.
By maintaining particle-free, filtered outbound airflow, properly maintained Laminar Flow Hoods prevent the contamination of products and procedures. They function as a sort of clean room in miniature. The hood prevents the operator from inadvertently contaminating a sensitive specimen, product, or procedure.
Constant positive air pressure within the hood or cabinet also eliminates the possibility of intrusion by potential contaminants from the local laboratory environment. This level of ISO-Classified airflow ensures the integrity of diverse products and procedures — from sensitive electronic devices to pharmaceuticals and biological specimens.
Typical Services Performed
Examples of services typically performed during Laminar Flow Hood Certification include:
- HEPA Filter Integrity Testing looks for any leaks or other defects that might allow unfiltered air to enter the workspace.
- Airflow Velocity Profile assures that airflow remains unidirectional, preventing contamination, as intended.
- Smoke Visualization Testing uses a source of visible smoke that is neutrally bouyant to provide visualization of unidirectional airflow and smoke anomalies like dead spots and air reflux of ambient air.
We also offer several optional tests, as required, to guarantee ongoing efficiency and operator safety — and for annual certifications or to certify compliance after unusual events, such as relocation.
