For someone in my end of the biz where all our air contaminants have hazards, that was hard to comprehend.  I hope we really have exposure data and know for sure that besides being non-infectious, these DNA/RNA thingies also do not provoke allergies or have any other hazards..

Monona--think PCR with non-infectious DNA/RNA (RG1).  Or tissue culture with non-mammalian cells....

I'm confused:  On the first page of the link it says:
These vertical laminar flow Hoods are ideal for applications which are not hazardous to the operator but require a clean work area.

    From what I have seen, the Laminar Flow Hoods are one of the best on the 
market.  Performing Lockout/Tagout audits, I see a lot of the bench top vertical 
models.  Here is a link for your viewing.

I hope this helps you out.
