Microaerophilic workstation; 4-gas system with built-in gas sensing technology

Microaerophilic Workstation

The Whitley Workstation M45 is a microaerophilic workstation ideal for the study and isolation of Campylobacter spp, Helicobacter pylori and other similarly fastidious organisms. This is a 4-gas system with built-in gas sensing technology that allows you to program precise gas concentrations and is perfect for manipulating samples in a sustainable microaerophilic environment. Available options include 15 cm letterbox, data logging, HEPA filtration, humidity control, gas pressure monitor, spare cable gland, data logging, custom-designed trolley, and removable front.

For total flexibility, up to four gases - nitrogen, carbon dioxide, air and a 103 hydrogen/903 nitrogen mix - can be combined within safe and varying ratios to provide a specific atmosphere for your experiments. The work and storage areas of the chamber are temperature controlled with an impressively low gradient threshold of ± .6°. This allows the full internal volume to be used as an incubator if desired. The M45 has the option of a standard, fixed front or the removable front. The removable front allows convenient access in the chamber and is easily removed and replaced with no extra tools or loose pieces.

Options:

HEPA Filtration
Internal HEPA filtration system provides a high degree of product / sample protection within the unit. Quickly creating and maintaining a particle-free environment (tested down to 0.3μm - exceeding ISO 14644-1 Class 3)

Gas Pressure Monitor
Designed as a method of monitoring the gas supply. The system will indicate the status of both sides of the switchover: FULL – IN SERVICE, and DEPLETED. When a cylinder or cylinder bank is depleted, the green light will change to a red light, and the audible alarm will sound.
