SCI-tive Hypoxia Workstation

SCI-tive Hypoxia Workstation for Stem Cell investigations

The SCI-tive range of advanced hypoxic workstations are designed to mimic 'in-vivo' conditions providing a continuous cell culture environment which eliminates cellular stress linked to variations in temperature, pH and oxidation yielding better stem cell lines. With the SCI-tive, you can study even the most complex cell interactions under perfect hypoxic or anoxic conditions. With more than a decade of customer feedback and experience, our workstations have been refined to meet your specific needs.


Complete 'Lab in a Box'

  • Large incubated working area allows incubation, passaging, media transfers and cell culture
  • Up to 185 T75 flasks (or 481 96-well plates) working capacity
  • Large pass-through interlock easily holds a variety of flasks, dishes and tubes

Accurate & Stable Environmental Control

  • O2 stability from 0.0% (anoxia) to 20.9% (ambient) in 0.1% increments with one touch sensor calibration
  • CO2 stability from 0.0% to 30.0% in 0.1% increments
  • Temperature control from ambient +5° C to 45° C
  • Humidity control from ambient to 85% RH
