Hypoxystation

Hypoxystation is a brand name of Don Whitley Scientific. The Hypoxystation range comprises six workstations: the H35, H35 HEPA, H45, H45 HEPA, H85 Hypoxystations and the DG250 Workstation. These are used to produce a reduced oxygen environment in cell and tissue culture research facilities, particularly in cancer, cardiovascular and neurology research, where cells can be cultured, incubated and studied in a defined atmosphere.

The Hypoxystation is ideal for researchers wanting to control oxygen, carbon dioxide, humidity and temperature to create the ideal environment in which to grow cells.

Hypoxic Conditions

Hypoxic Conditions

A hypoxic condition (or hypoxia) is a pathological condition in which the body as a whole or a region of the body is deprived of adequate oxygen supply. Variations in arterial oxygen concentrations can be part of the normal physiology, for example, during strenuous physical exercise. A mismatch between oxygen supply and its demand at the cellular level may result in a hypoxic condition.

Microaerobic Conditions

Microaerobic Conditions

These conditions occur where there is oxygen present but where that oxygen concentration is less than in air.

Many microaerophiles are also capnophiles, requiring an elevated concentration of carbon dioxide (ie Campylobacter spp).

Anaerobic Conditions

Anaerobic Conditions

This is the absence of oxygen, preventing normal life for organisms that depend on oxygen.

Anaerobic gas mixtures can be purchased (containing 10% H2, 10% CO2 and 80% N2). Oxygen is removed by combining with H2 in the presence of a catalyst, which then produces water.

H35 Hypoxystation

The H35 Hypoxystation is a cell and tissue culture chamber that creates hypoxic and anoxic conditions within a controlled workstation environment. It is ideal for researchers wanting to accurately control oxygen, carbon dioxide, temperature and humidity. Control O2 in 0.1% increments up to 20%; CO2 in 0.1% increments up to 15%; and relative humidity up to 80%.

Whitley H45 Hypoxystation

The H45 Hypoxystation creates hypoxic and anoxic conditions within a controlled and sustained workstation environment. This is the ideal cell culture system for researchers wanting to control oxygen, carbon dioxide, temperature and humidity. The H45 has two sleeved ports on a removable front and one instant access port, and has sufficient space to accommodate a variety of equipment inside the chamber, whilst still providing generous working and incubation areas.

Whitley DG250 Workstation

The Whitley DG250 is used when there is a need to easily process, culture and examine samples without exposure to atmospheric oxygen. This workstation has a small footprint yet, for emergency incubation, it will hold up to 400 plates.The DG250 Workstation can be operated as a hypoxic chamber, simply by attaching a cylinder of the required gas mixture - ideal for short term projects and one-off experiments, or when budgetary constraints necessitate a small, cost-effective workstation for a variety of applications.
