Ductless hoods are increasingly used in place of hard-ducted laboratory chemical (fume) hoods. These can reduce the amount of energy needed to control volatile toxic chemicals as well as provide more flexibility to re-arrange a lab. They have some advantages as well as disadvantages depending on the circumstances. This webinar will describe how ductless hoods work and the pros and cons of use, and how to decide if they have application in your laboratory.
