BIONAIRE HEPA AIR PURIFIER?!?!?!??!
    #4270569 - 06/08/05 04:25 AM (12 years, 20 days ago)

I wonder if someone used this as hepa filter, it says that it will remove 99.97% of particles and it has a hepa filter and a a carbon filter. these days are quite cheap to buy, i wonder if it can be used for out of glove box inoculations.

thanks for your advice.

No. It will actually make things worse by stirring up the air. The standard for calling something a hepa for household use is far less than the standards we require for mycology. I have four of those whole room hepa filters from Sears in my storage building now and don't even use them. My contamination problems actually went down when I unplugged them.

I have one and tried just blowing it across the area that I was working in while dropping wedges in jars. All jars contamed while it was on, the ones I did with it off were fine. It wasnt in a sealed glovebox/blower just in the kitchen, must have stirred up and blown contams into the jar.
Mine has a carbon filter too, I got it as a fan and odour remover for some "smelly plants"
