Hypoxia Workstations

The Baker Ruskinn range of Physiological Cell Culture Workstations have been designed to replicate low oxygen “in vivo” physiology providing the ideal research platform for cell biologists and cancer researchers.

Baker Ruskinn physiological oxygen workstations have been the trusted choice for laboratories around the world since 1998. These workstations are installed in more than 40 countries – and more than 1,200 research publications feature experiments performed in the Baker Ruskinn technology.
The Baker Ruskinn InvivO2 and SCI-tive range of advanced hypoxic workstations allows you to study even the most complex cell interactions under perfect hypoxic or anoxic conditions.

Physoxic Cell Culture: A Growing Trend for Stem Cell Expansion
Research interest in hypoxia has grown and gained momentum in the last decade because of its key role in controlling tumorogenesis, angiogenesis, diabetes, aging, and stem cell development. Human cells exist in a physiological environment of <15% oxygen – significantly lower than ambient or atmospheric conditions (21% oxygen).

Maintaining ‘in-vivo’-like conditions using a hypoxia chamber reduces oxidative stress and gives you better results. Typical cell culture methods involve isolating cells from a physiological state and then analysing them in “bench-top conditions”. This creates stress for the cell and introduces unknown outcomes in cell expression and morphology.
