Two Whitley Hypoxystations were used in a study by the Ontario Institute for Cancer Research.
The paper, entitled “Two phases of disulfide bond formation have differing requirements for oxygen” details how H35 and H85 Hypoxystations were used at various points of the experiment to assess and monitor how cancer cell lines react differently to hypoxic conditions.
Brad Wouters, who contributed to the study, previously suggested that for this type of work a Hypoxystation is the only option to maintain a consistent hypoxic environment. He also went on to state that Whitley Hypoxystations contribute significantly in his work towards cancer therapies, “The continuous hypoxia we achieve in the workstation is a prerequisite for studies with hypoxia-activated drugs used in cancer therapy”.
Both H35 and H85 Hypoxystations offer the best solution when it comes to incubating and working with samples at low oxygen conditions. The rapid airlock system means there is no risk of compromising the atmosphere created within the cabinet itself, enabling dependable, reliable and consistent results.
