Over the last few days Don Whitley Scientific has been exhibiting at the Cell Symposia Hallmarks of Cancer event in Ghent, Belgium. This was an event that gathered global leaders in cancer research to enhance understanding of the key aspects of cancer.
Delegates at the event were able to visit the Don Whitley Scientific exhibition stand to find out more about how hypoxic workstations are relevant for cancer research applications. Visitors to the stand could interact with a Whitley i2 Instrument Workstation , a workstation with a large capacity developed in response to a rising number of enquiries from scientists who wanted to use Seahorse Extracellular Flux (XF) Analyzers in hypoxic conditions.
There is a wealth of data showing that hypoxia in tumours is driving the progression of cancer and that important characteristics of cancer are influenced, or even caused, by a pathological lack of oxygen.
