Hypoxia Workstations

Understanding the benefits on creating ideal growth environments are creating exciting innovations in how cell culture work is performed. Culture workflows are attempting to create stable and continuous conditions. This creates less stress on cells and optimizes their growth potential. Incorporating these technologies and techniques can allow for the creation of ore physiologically relevant environments and allow researchers to culture cells as nature intended.

The ideal growth conditions for cells are also perfect for the development of contamination. Workflows must incorporate integrated contamination protection into their processes. Selecting tools to mitigate the risk of contagions, both from the lab surroundings and across cell lines, is critical to the integrity of cell lines. If contamination does occur, the design and materials of equipment can allow for the quick and efficient sterilization of the environment and return to optimal growth conditions.

Hypoxia Workstations

Baker’s 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 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, providing precise oxygen control for simulating low-oxygen environments in research and cell culture applications.

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.

Baker’s cell culture workstations are equipped with cutting-edge features to maintain sterile and controlled environments, ensuring optimal conditions for cell growth, viability, and reproducibility in research and biotechnology applications.
