How To Make A Flowhood For Less Than 60 Bucks (Cheap)


Recommended Posts

Could u seal that air purifier around a plastic tub ?

 

it would not be wise to do so because of leaks from the lid non laminar flow issues. the plastic bag will never have a leak inwards that will cause contam. and you can just fold it up and stick it in a closet :)

I should have said, can u seal it to the outside of a glovebox ?

 

yea absolutley, if you're crafty enough to do it and not mess everything up :P  i thought you meant like make a FH out of a plastic tote at first. This would definately work with a GB.

Lets take her for a spin with a little agar work :D Need to test a culture. The common tams in my house are aspergilus flavus, aspergillus niger, and some species of pennicilum. So long as I dont see any of those or bacteria this baby works (it does work I have used them before). This particular syringe is suspected of possibly being contaminated with dactylium mildew (cobweb mold).

 

Lets find out

Ok the jar on the left is the control jar. I did not noc it, I am just going to leave it open for 20 min. The jar on the right I inoculated with the syringe. The jar inoculated with the syringe will show growth much faster than the control jar (if it gets contaminated) because it looks like the syringe already had germinated.

Do you leave a slit for air to flow out of so you can see what your doing or just try and look through the bag.

I am going to pick up the materials needed for this. I have wanted a flowhood for sometime but could never bring myself to part with the cashola.

Yeah, thats what I figured. I just imagine trying to cut out small sectors of agar to isolate a strain might be harder to see.

Very cool. I bet I can guess which strain you are testing. How long does it take before you will know?

I will probably order online as it can be difficult to get me in and out of places because of the electric chair. Thanks dude. DM

The only filters on walmart.con I can find are max 99.97.

However, my pc is broke and i can only search on mobile. Not sure if that mmakes a diff.

Also, holmes.com doesnt seem to have the one in the pic.
