[As a point of reference, most bacteria range in size from .3 to 15 microns, while mold spores may range from 2 to 100 microns in diameter].
Dr. Becky Rhoades, Director of Veterinary Services at the Houston SPCA,
demonstrates how the Winged Sentry laminar flow hood pulls fumes
and particulates away from veterinary pharmacists while they
compound medicines for their animal residents.
To provide an additional layer of respiratory safety for the staff members who mix the disinfectant, Sentry Air donated a compact ductless fume hood, with a HEPA filter, designed to protect both the operator’s breathing zone and the surrounding environment from particulates.
Dr. Rhoades places disinfectant and mixing tools into the Sentry Airductless fume hood, which removes hazardous materialsfrom the operator’s breathing zone, capturing themin filters before they can be released into the surrounding area.
Houston SPCA regards our units as tools that will help keep their veterinary team safe as they “work tirelessly to give orphaned, abused and neglected animals a chance at life.”
