Re: small vacuum pump

From:Aidan Schurr

Just a thought, but why don't you set the pump up outside the hood (or on the floor, or strapped to the ceiling if space is *really* an issue ;-)  ), and just run the inlet and outlet hoses into the hood?

I need to set up a vac. pump inside an over-crowded hood for
infiltrating specimens.

2 questions:

Where can I buy the world's smallest vac. pump?

What is the minimum vac. setting I would need to effectively infiltrate
specimens of bone and soft tissue (in one piece) about 1cm x 3cm?
