New Video Testimonial – Optimal conditions for Clostridium difficile

Dr Jane Freeman, from Leeds General Infirmary and The University of Leeds, spoke to Don Whitley Scientific about her work with the Whitley A95 Anaerobic Workstation. 

Dr Freeman is part of the Healthcare Associated Infections Research Team that works at Leeds General Infirmary. Jane’s work involves investigating Clostridium difficile, a bacteria that can infect the bowel, causing diarrhoea and sometimes even more serious bowel conditions. Jane uses a Whitley A95 Anaerobic Workstation in her work and  she also uses an in vitro gut model (as shown in the video) to mimic the effects of C difficle.

The Whitley A95 Anaerobic Workstation offers a spacious work area with four portholes and a large capacity airlock. Dr Freeman states this large working area enables her to use all the equipment she needs without taking her samples out of the anaerobic conditions. The team at Leeds General Infirmary have five Whitley Workstations, as they provide a reliable anaerobic atmosphere in which to incubate and manipulate samples.

This video highlights how the Whitley A95 Anaerobic Workstation provides reliability, versatility and space for this important work with Clostridium difficile.

Hallmarks of Cancer event in Belgium

Over the last few days Don Whitley Scientific has been exhibiting at the Cell Symposia Hallmarks of Cancer event in Ghent, Belgium. This was an event that gathered global leaders in cancer research to enhance understanding of the key aspects of cancer.  

Delegates at the event were able to visit the Don Whitley Scientific exhibition stand to find out more about how hypoxic workstations are relevant for cancer research applications. Visitors to the stand could interact with a Whitley i2 Instrument Workstation , a workstation with a large capacity developed in response to a rising number of enquiries from scientists who wanted to use Seahorse Extracellular Flux (XF) Analyzers in hypoxic conditions.


There is a wealth of data showing that hypoxia in tumours is driving the progression of cancer and that important characteristics of cancer are influenced, or even caused, by a pathological lack of oxygen.
