Horizontal/Vertical Laminar Flow Clean Benches

Home / Products / Horizontal/Vertical Laminar Flow Clean Benches

Laminar flow clean benches (also known as laminar flow hoods) provide an aseptic space to work with a product or specimen without contaminating it with particulates such as microorganisms.

Laminar flow clean benches provide no protection for the user or the environment as airflow is directed out of the cabinet. If chemically hazardous or infectious materials are going to be used in the laminar flow hood, a biological safety cabinet is required.

A vertical laminar flow clean bench draws air from above the hood, filters it with a HEPA filter, and then forces the air down across the workspace and out the hood at the user.

A vertical laminar flow hood is useful for a variety of applications such as parts assembly, processing equipment, or to prepare agar plates. The workspace of a horizontal laminar flow clean bench is bathed in a horizontal filtered laminar airflow and is often used for clinical or pharmaceutical applications, or whenever a sterile, particulate-free environment is needed.

British Clinical Services is a leader in servicing and maintaining such equipment solutions, offering a wide product range knowledge working with many OEM’s. At British Clinical Services we blend the latest technology and innovation to provide you with full support and product protection for your peace of mind.

Our Core Services


Biological Safety Cabinets offer protection from microbiological contamination to the operator, environment and product. They are utilised by a range of scientific and research facilities within the commercial and non-commercial sectors, including clinical research, defence, education and general healthcare sectors.


Having the correct laminar air flow equipment in your cleanroom environment is very important, so British Clinical Services have worked hard to amass a quality selection of high-end equipment manufacturers for your needs.


Ductless fume hoods do not require any external ventilation. Instead, they use filters to capture solvent fumes from circulating air, which is then vented into the room. Ductless fume cabinets can maintain the same airflow as a standard vented fume hood but are easier to install as they do not require ventilation ducts.


Contamination control and PCR process repeatability is simplified with a range of PCR Cabinets. Each PCR Cabinet we install provides filtered vertical laminar flow to purge the work area of contaminants between amplifications and during preparatory procedures.


All fume cupboards and ventilated enclosures should be monitored and serviced annually both for safety and compliance purposes but also to retain the efficiency of your units.

British Clinical Services offer comprehensive maintenance and servicing agreement for all makes and models of Fume Cupboards.
