The Hypoxia Chamber: How to Assemble and Purge the Chamber



February 2, 2011

This instructional video provides a step-by-step procedure on how to assemble and purge the hypoxia chamber incubator (Catalog #27310) and how to assess the resulting low-oxygen environment. A hypoxic environment mimics physiological conditions and many cell types have been shown to have enhanced proliferation when cultured with lowered atmospheric oxygen tension. For example, mouse mesenchymal stem cells have been shown to be highly sensitive to atmospheric oxygen tension as culturing cells under hypoxic conditions facilitates optimal clonogenicity and cell proliferation.
