Labconco has combined its patented* fully-featured, containment-enhancing Protector® Hood design with Erlab’s GreenFumeHood® (GFH) Filtration Technology to deliver a multi-use fume hood that requires no ducting. The Protector Airo Filtered Fume Hood delivers uncompromising safety to confined laboratory spaces.

Erlab-proven Neutrodine® Filters are the heart of GFH Filtration Technology. 

The Protector Airo goes beyond the typical DH III ductless fume hood. A typical DH III ductless hood uses application-specific carbon filtration, which limits its ability to handle several chemicals at one time or adapt to new lab procedures. Instead, the Protector Airo uses Neutrodine Filters, the most comprehensive, safety-driven carbon filter available. This single molecular filter type can easily adsorb most chemicals and mixtures, taking the guesswork out of filter selection.
