How exactly is a flowhood used? One like this: http://www.thelittleguy.com/flow_hood.html

Is this connected to a growing chamber, or do you put shit in the flowhood? I am so confused...

the idea is to perform contamination sensitive work (like grain transfers or agar streaking) in front of a flowhood. the flowhood simply creates a steady stream of HEPA filtered air to work in. no contaminants can fall in your work. you may hear the term laminar flow. laminar flow means that there are no eddies or disturbances in the airflow up to a practical distance. always be aware that anything contaminated that gets put in the airstream ahead of what you are working on will most likely have contaminants blown off and into your work.
