Glossary Term: Glove Box


1. A sealed structure used to work with fungi in a more sterile environment. A glove box significantly minimizes the flow of contaminants (i.e. bacteria, other fungi, archaea, and viruses) in the air and on substrates such as agar. Glove boxes are commonly used by low-budget amateur cultivators instead of a laminar flow hood due to the significantly lower cost of construction. Glove boxes and flow hoods are often used to combine a substrate with spores or myceliums.
