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. It has sufficient space to accommodate a variety of equipment inside the chamber, whilst still providing generous working and incubation areas.

  • Control O2 in 0.1% increments up to 20%; CO2 in 0.1% increments up to 15%; and relative humidity up to 80% - provides flexibility in your research and confidence in your results.
  • Three portholes provide convenient access to the entire incubation and working areas of the chamber.
  • The removable front facilitates thorough cleaning and the transfer of bulk samples or larger pieces of equipment for use inside the workstation chamber.
  • Built-in rapid airlock to ensure samples can be transferred into the workstation atmosphere as soon as possible (only takes 60 seconds).
  • Colour, touch-screen control panel for ease of use and for visual display of parameters such as O2 level, CO2 level, temperature, humidity and airlock cycle status.
  • Available with fully automatic humidification system so you can add moisture AND maintain a sterile environment.
  • Fully integrated gas control avoids bulky add-on systems and reduces the need for additional bench space.

Applications for this instrument include cancer research, IVF, stem cell research, cardiovascular research, as well as many other types of cell and tissue culture work.
