We study glioblastoma (where) the hypoxic niche is the home for radiation resistant glioma stem-like cells that are the likely cause for relapse. Most researchers don’t have access to an hypoxia workstation, so the ambient oxygen most people use is absolutely not normal. Our typical experiments last for 3-5 days and we would always have our cells in the HypOxystation. If any sort of oxygen response is expected in our experiments, we incubate within the workstation. We have had the Hypoxystation for 3 years and the oxygen level stays very stable.
