Slee Laminar Flow Work Station

'A laminar flow cabinet or tissue culture hood is a carefully enclosed bench designed to prevent contamination of semiconductor wafers, biological samples, or any particle sensitive materials. Air is drawn through a HEPA filter and blown in a very smooth, laminar flow towards the user.'

'The principle of laminar flow cabinet is based on the laminar flow of air through the cabinet. The device works by the use of inwards flow of air through one or more HEPA filters to create a particulate-free environment'

A laminar flow cabinet consists of the following parts:

1. Cabinet

  • The cabinet is made up of stainless steel with less or no gaps or joints preventing the collection of spores.
  • The cabinet provides insulation to the inner environment created inside the laminar flow and protects it from the outside environment.

2. Working station

  • A flat working station is present inside the cabinet for all the processes to be taken place.
  • Culture plates, burner and loops are all placed on the working station where the operation takes place.
  • The worktop is also made up of stainless steel to prevent rusting.

3. Filter pad/ Pre-filter

  • A filter pad is present on the top of the cabinet through which the air passes into the cabinet.
  • The filter pad traps dust particles and some microbes from entering the working environment within the cabinet.

4. Fan/ Blower

  • A fan is present below the filter pad that sucks in the air and moves it around in the cabinet.
  • The fan also allows the movement of air towards the HEPA filter so that the remaining microbes become trapped while passing through the filter.

5. HEPA filter

  • The High-efficiency particulate air filter is present within the cabinet that makes the environment more sterile for the operation.
  • The pre-filtered air passes through the filter which traps fungi, bacteria and other dust particles.
  • The filter ensures a sterile condition inside the cabinet, thus reducing the chances of contamination.
