Testimonial: Vertical Laminar Flow Hood for Fungal Cell Culture

Ecovative Design is a biomaterials company that grows replacements of synthetic foam, such as MycoComposite™, that is comprised of agricultural waste (seed hulls) and mushroom mycelium. They utilize several Sentry Air Systems air purification systems, including both laminar flow hoods (also known as Portable Clean Room Hoods or Tissue Culture Hoods) and ductless chemical fume hoods.

At Ecovative, we required a quick, easy, and affordable solution for providing a sanitary working space for conducting fungal cell culture and media preparation. The Sentry Air Systems ductless hoods provided an ideal solution, rapidly delivering a complete laminar flow hood that continues to perform even years after the original purchase.

Ecovative used both the ductless HEPA laminar flow hoods, which continuously operate to clean the surrounding air and the ductless chemical hoods, which operate for at least two hours a day.
Maintenance is convenient, since the prefilters, chemical filters, and HEPA filters can be removed in less than a minute and replaced safely. The Ecovative team really enjoys the ductless hoods due to their convenience and ease of cleaning.

This is why we continue to purchase more Sentry Air Systems hoods as the company continues to grow
