The cabinets are ductless and incorporate carbon filters for fume removal. Linda Kilford, senior research technician explains: "In the preparation of our samples and staining of slides we use xylene, ammonia, alcohols and formic acid. Using a general purpose filter coupled with a HEPA particulate filter, we can remove all these vapours."
