Ducted or Ductless? That depends...

If you’re stuck in a place between a fume hood and a hard ceiling, consider using a filtered fume hood. Since more and more laboratories find they cannot duct out, or are choosing not to duct out, in order to save on energy costs, there is a diverse range of carbon filtered fume hoods for most chemical fume hood needs...
