Whitley Anaerobic Workstations looked a little different in 1989 … like something out of the Tardis, looking at this old newsletter article from the archives.
It’s interesting to see, however, what things have changed in the 28 years that have passed. Looking at the photographs in the article on the right, a couple of innovations are evident immediately. The round gloveports on the Compact Workstation pictured have been replaced with either patented oval ports or Whitley Instant Access Ports in our modern workstations and all those buttons and switches have been replaced by a full colour touchscreen display. The latest airlocks are integral and the 12 litre version (pictured on the Whitley A35 Workstation below) takes only 60 seconds to run a cycle.
Don Whitley Scientific also now manufactures the Hypoxystation range of workstations for cell culture applications. These workstations accurately control oxygen and carbon dioxide via gas sensing technology. We now use this technology on our anaerobic workstations too, to accurately monitor oxygen levels at all times so you no longer have to rely on chemical indicators … as was the case in 1989!
With a strong focus on quality and ergonomics, we think we have taken the design of our workstations to another level over the years and our customers tell us they agree. But there are a couple of Compact Workstations out there, still going strong
“A straight line may be the shortest distance between two points,
but it is by no means the most interesting.”
