Enclosures, Aerosol Treatment
Definition : Isolation treatment chambers designed for administration of hazardous aerosols. These chambers typically consist of a sealed rigid device, which encloses the patient's head and/or head and upper torso, with an exhaust system that protects the nearby environment by capturing airborne contaminants. The exhaust system usually includes germicidal ultraviolet lights and several filters, such as carbon and/or high-efficiency particulate-air filters, permitting the release of cleaned air back into the room. Hazardous aerosol treatment chambers are used for control of contaminated air during administration of hazardous aerosolized medication (e.g., treatment of Pneumocystis carinii using pentamidine therapy) and/or for sputum induction.

Our founder, Kenneth H. Carpenter has been in the clean air and laminar flow business since the very early days of the industry. The original technique for laminar flow workstations was developed by Willis J. Whitfield of Sandia Corporation in 1961. The first two laminar flow units were built for Sandia by Agnew-Higgins during those initial years in the clean air business. In 1967 his son, Ken R. "Kenny" Carpenter joined his father at Agnew-Higgins as a cabinet maker and began his long tradition of manufacturing clean-room components.
