Default Re: New homemade hood

Perhaps thats what they used to do (never heard of it personally), but if I had a bunsen burner in the corner it would be to sterilize the tools, if its a laminar flow hood then the air is already flowing laminarily thru the hood. I dont know the material the filters are made of, but they work on a principle of being very tightly woven with small fibers and are electrostatically charged to pull ionized particles to the fibers.
