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!

    • Wish I bought one sooner
    Wow beyond impressed with my order! After doing weeks of research and planning to build one of these on my own, I ended up pulling the trigger on a Bonsai. Blowers with the right CFM ratings that fit this size are out of stock everywhere or the ones that are in stock are $500-$600+. I decided to save myself the weekend and headaches of building one my own and I am glad I did! The build quality is better than anticipated. Clearly Bonsai is using some high end cabinet making machinery to build these.

    I looked around at other smaller sellers on Etsy and Ebay and the lead time is like 5-6 weeks to maybe save $100-$150 max. I ordered one on Thursday 3/16/23 and was delivered on Wednesday 3/22/23, that is jaw-dropping fast for a freight company called RoadRunner that I never heard of. Hats off to everyone, I am beyond pleased and already put 5 hours of time on this baby! Og forgot to mention, its super easy to assemble also! like 10 mins and I was up and running! -Peace!

    Great Brand & Reputation is 5 star!

    Ordered Monday night, shipped on Wednesday received on Friday to East Coast! Can't beat that for a flow hood of this size and finish! I was able to get this up and running in about 15 mins. No electrical wiring! With a friend we unwrapped this, installed the prefilter cabinet, popped in the pre-filter and 4 screws later it was purring like a cat! I have no doubt this works as advertised, seen many reviews on Bonsai's hoods and they all get great reviews. You can tell this was made by true professionals. I am a contractor and I know quality when I see it. All the edges are routed on a CNC machine, the face frame has to be made on a large CNC CAD. These guys are no amateurs!

    Fast freight shipping!

    Ordered 12/14 and received in Cali on 12/20! FedEx freight called me to give me delivery window and was actually on time. They delivered to my garage. I was worried it would not fit through the door but it fit and was easy for my wife and I do unpack and set up. I have been running this hood for about 10 days now and all my agar transfers are clean! Can't beat the price and delivery time for a flowhood of this size.

    Also want to note that there is no electrical wiring required! Very nice!

    Nice upgrade from my 12" hood! =)

    Been using a Bonsai 12" flowhood for 2 years and finally am gettting the big boy hood I always wanted. I tell you the quality keeps getting better with these units. I've shopped around for 6 months and I can't find anything price-wise that compares without buying a used one. I LOVE THE 1-PIECE FACE FRAME!! Filter changing will be super easy! 5 stars!!
