Workstation spotlight

NEW – Spotlight accessory for Whitley 35 and 45 Workstations

Listening to customer comments confirmed that some users would like a spotlight inside their Whitley Workstation. Spotlights typically provide directional lighting to assist in the early identification of sample growth or other specimen examination. So we developed a spotlight as an option … and announce that this accessory is now available.

The Whitley Directional LED Spotlight is mounted on a small pod on the left hand side of the chamber. The on/off switch is also located on this pod.

The spotlight can be specified when a workstation is ordered, or for customers who already have a Whitley A35 or H35* or an A45 or H45* Workstation, a DWS service engineer (or one of our authorised distributors overseas) will be able to retrofit this spotlight on site. Please contact us for further information.

The order code for this item is A07211 – Whitley 35/45 Workstation Spotlight.

For more details on this new accessory, please contact our sales team on +44 (0)1274 595728 or email


* Please note that the location of the spotlight means that this product cannot be fitted to the H35/H45 Hypoxystation fitted with a Humidification System.

New Australian Website Launched

Don Whitley Scientific is pleased to announce the launch of their new Australian website. We have totally redesigned and restructured the site to make it easier and quicker for you to access the information you require.

You will find more images, downloadable fact sheets, better navigation and an improved display of accessory order codes. It will also provide an easy way to inform you of new products, special offers and case studies (so don’t forget to save the site to your favourites!).

The site also:

  • Has a new ‘Request a Callback’ feature so we can call you at your convenience.
  • Includes a new image zoom-in feature so you can have a closer look at the product features that interest you.
  • Allows you to sign up for our e-newsletter – just log on and provide your email address.
  • Connects you with our UK office blog featuring articles on such topics as product usage, R&D projects, maintenance tips, special promotions and microbiology advice.

We really want the new site to be useful to you so would be very interested in any feedback. This will help us continue to improve the site and consequently maintain a high level of customer service.
