Purpose of Laminar Fume Hood & Application

A Laminar fume hood (LFH) is frequently used for handling lab samples that need to be as sterile as possible but are safe for inhalation. In an LFH, air is pumped throughout the work zone in a single direction after passing through the HEPA filters that are mounted in the hood. The clean air stream ensures the safety and protection of the materials by removing any steam, smoke, or dust that may be produced during various activities.
