Laminar Flow Cabinet
Laminar flow cabinets (LFC) works only for sample protection. It neither protects the person working with samples and the environment. The uses of laminar flow varied from tissue culture, sample preparation, microbial works and rDNA work. In all the above cases the samples are less hazardous and are non-volatile and requires a microbial free environment.
LFC is a work bench or similar enclosure, which creates a particles-free working environment by taking air through a filtration system and exhausting it across a work surface in a laminar or unidirectional air stream. The LFC is enclosed on the sides and kept under constant positive pressure in order to prevent the infiltration of contaminated room air.
