How to Clean Your Flow Hood

A laminar flow hood is a critical piece of equipment used in a variety of industries such as pharmaceutical, biotechnology, microbiology, and mycology. It is used to create a sterile work environment by directing filtered air over the workspace to minimize contamination. Cleaning your FloCube flow hood and work area helps to maintain a consistent […]

Learn about Sterilization - critical with mushroom cultivation.

Let’s talk about STERILIZATION

When sterilizing substrates, grains, and agar mixtures, search for a pressure cooker that can hold a pressure of 15 PSI, which allows for a steam temperature of 250°F. Hot enough to eliminate any competing mold or bacteria, giving the desired mushroom species the best chance of survival.

Contamination From Substrates

The best substrates for growing mushrooms are also the best substrates for many types of molds and bacteria.  One of the most common sources of contamination in mushroom cultivation is due to incomplete sterilization or inadequate pasteurization of your spawn or bulk substrate.  These competing contaminants and the dormant spores that naturally exist in bulk […]

How to Create An Inoculation Room

A bathroom or spare bedroom is the next best location for your lab. No matter which room you choose to set up your lab, if you are using a SAB, it’s best to shut any HVAC vents in the room you are working in before cleaning and setup.

What is a Still Air Box (SAB) vs. Flow Hood?

When properly cleaned and sanitized, the Still Air Box creates a semi-sterile environment where stray floating fungal, viral, and bacterial matter cannot penetrate or tumble down from above
