Labconco's high performance general chemistry laboratory hoods protect the user from harmful or toxic fumes or vapors generated from a broad range of applications. Containment-enhancing features allow them to operate at lower face velocities than traditional hoods while being energy-efficient and protecting the operator.

Since less room air is exhausted, energy is conserved.
