Since 2019 Bonsai Filtration has built over 4,000 laminar flow hoods for amateurs and professionals in the mycology industry. Bonsai has also built many large custom flow hoods in all different sizes for some of the leading research companies. We have received many requests for a large commercial unit and Bonsai has come through with their flagship 4'x2' laminar flow hood.
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
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!
