Guide to Laboratory Fume Hoods

At iQ Labs we often have the pleasure of working with a wide range of customers who have varying degrees of knowledge around what it is that we do. Our daily interactions range from explaining the basics of fume hood operations, to working with project leaders and architects who are designing and building some of the most cutting-edge labs in the world. These projects involve the need to design and build custom fume hoods that have extremely specific and necessary safety functions.

We thoroughly enjoy these wide ranging interactions as we are constantly learning what the latest needs and wants are of our customer base. These interactions allow us to continually innovate and look at how we can improve our products and offerings.

In the spirit of providing useful content to our customers and trying to answer some of their more basic questions, we have developed a fume hood guide. This guide will help explain how fume hoods operate, while also touching on the safety concerns and standard operating procedures. The fume hood guide pdf can be downloaded below.

If you have additional questions or would like more information regarding any of our products or the information provided in this guide, please reach out to our sales team.
