Laboratory Hoods, Laminar Flow, Horizontal

Definition : Laminar flow hoods designed to create a horizontal laminar airflow in the working area, providing an appropriate environment in which sterile materials such as culture media and drug preparations do not become contaminated. Horizontal laminar flow hoods typically include blowers and may also include a high-efficiency particulate-air (HEPA) filter for the inflow of air. Horizontal laminar flow hoods are used in clinical laboratories and in clinical pharmacies to prepare nontoxic drugs (e.g., antibiotics, enteral and parenteral nutrition products) under sterile conditions; they do not protect the operator from the materials under preparation. They are not biological safety enclosures and should not be used when infectious or potentially infectious materials are handled.
