The Whitley A85 is used when there is a need to easily process, incubate and examine samples without exposure to atmospheric oxygen. This anaerobic workstation has a large, 36 litre airlock and accommodates up to 560 x 90mm plates.  Oval glove ports enable you to work comfortably, gloved or bare handed. Each gloveport also acts as a mini-airlock so you can transfer up to 10 plates through each as you insert or withdraw your arms.

The colour, touch-screen control panel ensures ease of use and is perfect for visual display of parameters such as temperature, humidity, and airlock cycle status.

The A85 Workstation can be purchased with the Whitley Internal HEPA Filtration System or can include a refrigeration unit should you want to manipulate samples and incubate cultures at low temperatures. This workstation can also be purchased as a three gas (TG) version, which runs from separate cylinders of nitrogen, hydrogen and carbon dioxide. So if you need to reduce costs to a minimum ask about the A85TG.
