ABSTRACT
The article assesses the impact of the indoor-air quality (IAQ) systems used in laboratories. It also evaluates the efficiency of IAQ systems to remove airborne chemicals and the impact of the IAQ operations on hood containment. Improvement in IAQ in laboratories is reportedly a concern because of the many chemicals used in the premises that have an effect on occupant health.
