This is a ductless fume hood formerly in use in a medical lab doing urine testing. The full model # is 550E. It seems to be in good working order passing all self-tests. It was certified until September 2015, retired in July, 2015 and was new in 2007. It was not treated well during the surplus process and has numerous scratches on the side panels. As well the frame metal on the bottom is rusted and in need of repair or replacement. The acrylic doors and viewing window and plastic backing covers are undamaged as are the lamps, filter covers, displays, controls and filters. I assume the current filters are set up for amonia.
This is a relatively expensive and high quality piece of eight year old lab equipment. It is a current product. With a little work it can be brought up to anyone's standard. It has applications is avariety of settings.
According to the manufacturer:
Aura models are the most well constructed and durable ductless hoods on the market today. The acrylic sash and side panels are resistant to chemicals. The head section (fan, filter and microprocessor control housing) is encased in a sturdy sheet metal frame with a powder coated finish. These materials were chosen for both strength and stability. Misonix units are made in the USA and built to last.
