    The Bonsai Commercial 48"x24" flow hood is the most popular size for any commercial or home lab with the space. The Bonsai Commercial Series Flow hood is made with components from many leading US brands. The top of the line HEPA filter is made from a water resistant glass microfiber and features hundreds of aluminum separators to maximize the laminar flow. These HEPA filters are used throughout the microbiological industry, microchip manufacturers, nuclear laboratories, and more!

    Don't be fooled by many of these cheap all-in-one FFU (Fan filter units) that claim to be just as good, while they may work for simple inoculations, they create a turbulent work field and can easily cause cross wind contamination while doing many of the popular tasks. True laminar air flow is needed to provide a constant reliable sterile work space.

    Bonsai's production center features many state of the art robotics including CAD, CNC machines, that do a perfect job cutting pristine 1-piece frames. They also allow them to produce more units per day and lowering the overall cost of the unit. Bonsai prices are 20-35% lower than most of their competitors and unlike anywhere else the flow hoods are in stock and ready to ship!

    I've been wanting to pull the trigger on a large flowhood for awhile now, but the lead times and costs were the reason I have not purchased yet. Some sites are selling these exact models for $2999 plus freight. When I stumbled across this it sounded too good to be true!

    I live in Oklahoma and shipping came Fedex Freight and arrived in literally 3 Days, well packed! Assembly was just screwing in the 4 screws for the blower motor and popping the cover and pre-filter on. You will need a friend to help lift this baby in place but so far its humming along and a few agar transfers look perfect!
