Laminar Air Flow

Horizontal and Vertical Laminar Air Flow/ Tissue Culture Hood

A laminar air flow cabinet is a working station that comes with Prefilters and HEPA Filters/ULPA Filters. The Laminar Flow cabinet is also known as Tissue culture Hood which is used to save the testing sample from particle reactive materials. Laminar is a term that explains the constant flow of air in one dimension without any disturbance. Laminar Air Flow provides a microorganism & particle-free environment to carry out such special work for research purposes. Chamber of Tissue culture hood is made up of leak proof stainless steel 304.  LAF works on air flow velocity range from 0.3m/s to 0.5m/s towards the user.

There are two types of Laminar Air flow available in the market one is Vertical and another one is Horizontal LAF. These two types of LAF designed almost in the same manner but HEPA filter & pre-filter placement is different. Yatherm Manufactures a double filtration system in all types of LAF with the best price in INDIA.

Vertical LAF

Air flows vertically through HEPA Filter from top to down & then leaves the cabinet. ULPA filter can also be used instead of the HEPA filter for better results in the research field. Due to less weight of micro-contaminants & gravity, it gets to settle down at the bottom with the help of airflow and then leaves the cabinet easily. Vertical Laminar is very similar to the clean room which makes it popular in Hospitals Operation theaters. Vertical laminar also come in hanging type which makes it very much acceptable worldwide for various kind of application.

Advantages
  • Less Floor Area required
  • Used For Compounding Sterile Products
  • Lesser air flow Turbulence
  • Cross contamination is next to impossible
Horizontal LAF

Air flows horizontally through HEPA Filter Fitted at the back side towards the user. Horizontal LAF is the most demanded LAF in the Indian Market because of economic advantage over Vertical one. It has various features like an easy replacement of HEPA filters and pre-filters with the Validation feature of the DOP test.
