New from Don Whitley Scientific is the rectangular, transparent and stackable anaerobic ‘box’ – the Whitley Anaerobic Box (registered design application). It can be used to create the perfect environmental conditions for the isolation and cultivation of anaerobic and microaerobic organisms, and for cell culture applications.
Whitley Anaerobic Box is ideal for use with the Whitley Jar Gassing System (evacuation/replacement method) or as a stand-alone system to use with gas generation sachets. Adaptors are available for use with other jar gassing systems.
Whitley Anaerobic Boxes were designed specifically to be stacked on top of each other inside an incubator or on the bench, saving valuable space. The main box (without the lid in place and with no samples inside) can be nested with other empty boxes so that work in progress takes up minimal space.
Whitley Anaerobic Box will accommodate either 12-14 x 90mm Petri dishes or 5 x standard multi-well plates. The four latches used to open and close the box are attached to the lid so there are no loose parts to misplace.
The Whitley Whitley Anaerobic Box may be used to transfer items into and out of a Whitley Workstation. Whitley Anaerobic Box has been designed to fit through the 35-sized airlock and every larger Whitley airlock. This application is ideal when you want to move samples from one workstation to another and when you want to preserve your samples in modified atmospheric conditions while they continue to grow in an external incubator.
The design of the Whitley Anaerobic Box includes a safety valve, which ensures an appropriate level of vacuum is achieved without damaging the box itself. It is durable and lightweight and can be used to create multiple atmospheres.
