Don Whitley Scientific and our distributor in Ireland, Davidson and Hardy, recently installed equipment at Trinity College Dublin to help with research into cell metabolism.
Stephen Maher, Assistant Professor at Trinity College Dublin first experienced using a Whitley Workstation when working with a group at The University of Hull. In his Trinity College Dublin lab, Don Whitley Scientific recently installed a Whitley H35 Hypoxystation, to be used connected to a Whitley i2 Instrument Workstation. The combination of these two units should help Stephen Maher greatly in his research.
The Whitley H35 Hypoxystation is ideal for cell and tissue culture researchers who want to accurately control oxygen, carbon dioxide, temperature and humidity. A removable front allows large quantities of samples or pieces of equipment to be placed inside the unit for use within these specific, physiologically relevant conditions. The i2 Workstation was developed in response to a rising number of enquiries from scientists wanting to use Seahorse Extracellular Flux (XF) Analyzers in hypoxic conditions and were dissatisfied with the solutions available. This workstation can be used as a stand-alone unit or connected to a Whitley Hypoxystation via the new Whitley Transfer Tunnel, enabling preparation of cell lines under hypoxic conditions and their transfer directly into the i2 without exposure to air.
