There is a requirement in laboratories for Laminar Downflow and PCR Hoods which provide a sterile working environment and for some application to prevent aerosols from the work escaping into the laboratory. In addition to satisfying the requirements for PCR work they also need to accomplish this occupying the minimum work space. The STAFtech range of compact Laminar Downflow Hoods provides a working area continuously flushed with filtered air with an air to ensure an air quality better than Class 5 to ISO 14644 and Class 100 to US Federal Standard 209. Re-circulation versions are available where it is necessary to minimise the escape of aerosols from within the working area. The units are designed to fit on a normal laboratory bench and are available in two standard sizes, 650 and 950mm wide
