Shelly Scientific is a Canadian manufacturer of laminar flow hoods and process equipment. Our team of scientists, designers, engineers and skillful craftsmen turn your idea into reality. Shelly services range from modifying commercially available equipment to developing a full working model of a new machine. Thanks to our wide combined expertise, we are able to tackle projects of various complexities.
We provide clean air solutions to both small clinics preparing IV therapy to large facilities that need more powerful filtration systems. Our benchtop laminar flow hoods are ideal for clinic with limited space. Depending on the volume of your work you our hoods range from the smallest model with the footprint of 270mm*470mm that is enough to hang about five IV bags to a larger benchtop model of 700mm*500mm. We can build custom hood based on the space you have available.
To our knowledge as of 2019 we are the only manufacturer of laminar flow hoods in Canada. If you know of someone else, please let us know. The hoods usually come from China or to a much lesser extent, from the US. Once they reach Canadian customers, the prices are many times over the original cost. Although there is nothing wrong about importing quality equipment from abroad, not many customers know that Canada has one of the strictest electrical safety codes in the world, yet China has no electrical code and the US has lower requirements in terms of electrical safety.
Therefore, if you buy a Chinese or American-made equipment that works just fine, you are still not legally allowed to use it at your place of business unless you have it approved by Electrical Safety Authority and pay a fee of $450 per inspector’s visit. Chinese manufacturers will not tell you this, US manufactures will not tell you this. Buying from a Canadian vendor? Ask to see the electrical safety certificate first.
