A fume hood is a ventilation device used to limit exposure to toxic fumes, often in a laboratory setting. The two main types of fume hoods are ducted and ductless, also known as recirculating. Greener fume hood options that use a ductless design and limit environmental impact are becoming increasingly popular with environmentally conscious laboratories.
