Fume hoods

LA Benchtop Series Fume Hood

With its angled front panel design for improved variable airflow, the customizable LA Series Benchtop Fume Hood is the perfect blend of affordability, efficiency, and flexibility for any research, education, or industrial operation requiring a general use chemical fume hood. Its bypass technology provides consistent laminar airflow across the face of the hood, ensuring a safe work environment for all users.
The full-bias sash perimeter and multi-slotted baffle system provide optimal airflow characteristics, performing effectively down to 60 ft/min face velocity – important for “air-starved” rooms and general energy conservation. In the iQ Labs tradition of function, durability and value, the LA comes with a long list of standard equipment that aid in its work as a green energy fume hood.
