If you mean in your lab, ozone is as toxic to us as it is to critters.

I don't think there really is any practical application for an ozone generator in mushroom cultivation.

Ozone is not toxic but, I was really more interested in an ion generator.

The ion generator will help with smells but wont really clean the air. It will just cause the airborn particles and odors to precipitate and fall to the ground,which will be the surface of the substrate so Im not sure it will help you out much.

The ozone will definately kill any molds and bacteria as well as fungus. So this means not good for the mushies. Ozone is dangerous to humans too, especially in an enclosed environment where the concentration of the O3 can build up. As o3 cannot be used by the body like o2 you will basically suffer from lack of oxygen and that is not good. Headache,dry throat,and eventually pulmonary edema and death are possible if the o3 becomes concentrated enough so be carefull with ozone generators unless you have ample fresh air exchange to prevent a build up. I would also think that small pets would be somewhat more sensitive so keep that in mind also.

The only practical application I can think of for an ozone generator would be to sterilize the air where transfers and innoculations will take place.

Whoa...I have an ozone generator in my house already.  I really had no idea that it was at all bad for humans.  I have felt better than ever since I have been running it.  Either way, I wasn't very specific in my post with my question.  I would only be using these machines during transfers and innoculations.  The hepas do fine and I use h2o2 in our initial admixture of water to the substrates which I think helps keep contam very low.  I do however have the ozone generator running near the lab to keep the air outside cleaner.
Thanks for the tips.
