A flow hood for the people

The single most necessary piece of equipment for sterile culture has never been so accessible. The Fungaia Laminar Flow Hood delivers a professional-grade tool at a fraction of the size and cost.

Each custom flow hood is lovingly made by hand from laser-cut 5mm hardwood-veneer plywood and finished with pure, raw linseed oil.

Especially suited for the classroom and home laboratory, this compact, efficient, affordable laminar flow hood is the perfect tool to help you kiss contamination goodbye and take your cultivation and breeding work to a whole new level.

The Fungaia Laminar Flow Hood opens new horizons in biology, making the benefits of sterile culture technique more accessible than ever before. This compact, efficient, affordable flow hood design promises a revolution in our relationship with our living world.

We dream of a new generation of self-appointed scientists, globally connected and locally focused, equipped with the tools and knowledge to make new strides toward understanding, preserving and rejuvenating the Earth’s precious, vulnerable ecologies.

Some Background...

The microbial realm is wildly complex. Living things pervade every breath of air we breathe. When creating an ideal environment for a given organism to grow, there are many others that thrive in the same conditions, and not all of them are friendly. This is why biologists rely on sterile culture technique.

A laminar flow hood is an air filtration device, widely used throughout the biological sciences, healthcare, pharmaceuticals, nuclear technology and manufacturing. Flow hoods create a sterile working environment for sensitive tasks, such as the isolation and propagation of fungi, plants, bacteria and other microorganisms.

Until now, access to this technology has been limited to institutions, professionals and a few intrepid do-it-yourself-ers. By making it available to everyone, we hope to engender a growing movement of citizen scientists. A handful of specialists from a handful of universities can only accomplish so much. But with a flow hood in every home, there is no limit to the possibilities our collective curiosity might uncover. Who knows? Together we might even save the world.
