Flowhood from ebay review

Recommended Posts

Yeah nah, I wouldn't. Says it's a vertical flow cabinet- so clean air is pushed from the top of the cabinet to the bottom

 

Best flow cabinets for general contamination free cultures IMO are horizontal flow. Clean air is pushed from the back of the cabinet towards you, so if any contaminants are inadvertently transferred during work they will be blown away from the work surface towards the user

 

Anyone here ever used a vertical flow cabinet for routine sterile culture  transfer work? This link says it's possible, but I've not seen it in practice ever

Cheers Darklight. I have been doing a bit of research and think I will look at the filters and pump from aussimushrooms.
