I am talking to the seller about this potential deal. Would this suffice for mycology work?

Ask the seller if it would work if you set it up horizontally. You can tell them you're growing (oyster) mushrooms and want to do tissue culture with it (both of which are perfectly legal). That requires the flow of air be horizontal across your work area, not blowing down on to it.

 

If it would require modification to use correctly for culture work then it's probably not the ideal choice. But it might work great just by laying it over and removing the bottom panel of the work space (not sure though).

Thank you for your good energy, Dark. Your desire to help is much appreciated!

TV, thanks for your advice! They said they have to find it in their storage right now. This makes me wonder if it will be in decent condition. Anyhow, I'll probably pass on this and just wait to get a FH from Fungi Perfecti.. Guess I'll just delay gratification for now.. Sighhhh
