A Manic Month Continues for DWS

June continues to be busy for Don Whitley Scientific, with 6 exhibitions and events attended already. And we have two more to go!

In the month of June, we have attended several meetings and exhibitions that featured topics ranging from pathology, cancer research, LIMS systems and more. We helped to administer the 2017 Practical and Clinical Microbiology of Anaerobes Course, hosted by the UK Anaerobe Reference Unit, Cardiff. It was once again a fantastic success.

Next week (26th-28th June) DWS will be attending the Association for Radiation Research Annual Meeting, which this year focuses on the topic “Improving Radiotherapy Response through Radiation Research” featuring speakers from cancer research institutes from around the world. Don Whitley Scientific will have an exhibition stand at this meeting displaying the Whitley H45 Workstation. There will also be an interactive touchscreen presentation, which allows users to explore the full range of Whitley Workstations.

On 4th July we will also have an exhibition stand at the Society for Applied Microbiology Annual Applied Microbiology Conference at the BALTIC Centre in Gateshead. This meeting will focus on new insights into food safety. Here we will exhibit the ProtoCOL and WASP Touch, two products that provide real benefits in food microbiology applications.

Scientist Working in Whitley Workstation

Hypoxia in the Tumour Microenvironment

Hypoxia in the tumour microenvironment affects all the characteristic Hallmarks of Cancer, significantly impacting progression of the cancer and the patients’ prognosis. Inflammation and immunity are both acutely influenced by the low oxygen typical of the tumour microenvironment: hypoxia creates an immune-suppressive network supporting tumour growth and metastasis, and it induces sustained inflammation in a “wound that never heals”.

Cancer research depends on recreating a physiologically accurate environment for cell cultures in the lab, and hypoxia in a closed workstation format such as a Whitley Hypoxystation is the best way to do that. Incubate, image, manipulate and assay – all inside the continuous, reliably stable hypoxic environment. HEPA filtered air scrubbed to ISO 14644 class 3 standards, sterile humidity, and containment options make the Hypoxystation the safest, cleanest workstation available for hypoxic cell culture down to 0.1% O2.

Our Hypoxystation users are investigating all aspects of the Hallmarks of Cancer and how they are shaped by hypoxia. We review their recent research on Avoiding Immune Destruction and Tumour Promoting Inflammation here.
