Subject: Low-flow Fumehoods

Does anyone have information (field studies, containment studies,  
hands-on experience, references..) regarding Fisher Hamilton's  
Concept fumehood?
 From the literature that I've reviewed it appears that this fumehood  
has comparable or better containment at the low-flow setting of 60  
FPM than standard fumehoods at 100 FPM.
I'm specifically interested in experience related to the use of  
"stench" chemicals (TEMED or beta-mercaptoethanol) in these fumehoods.

Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
