airpurifier made into a glove box or flow hood possible will it work?
    #15839852 - 02/20/12 11:03 PM (8 years, 11 months ago)

I am tired of failures and contamination... I got interested in laminar flow hoods and there just too much money.

  I seen there are ways to make your own by just buying a hepa filter and blower yet a bit pricey for me still.

  Then I saw someone took a 3 stage honeywell air purifier that had a pre carbon filter then a tru hepa filter, then a ionizer built into the honeywell airpurifier. This was attached to something like a large rubbermaid tote maybe 66 quart or larger. I believe it was attached to the tote with silicone.

  That seems to be the cheaper route and right up my alley due to funds. Before I get my hopes up will that work as a flow hood?

  or maybe if i made a glove box with the air purifier attached and then drilled some holes in the tote for the purified air to escape, will that work? I will not be doing spore prints, I was looking to do grain to grain transfers and agar plates. thoughts? thanks

that's a bit overboard especially if your trying to be frugal.
just get a clear tote cut some arm holes and bomb it between uses
