Baker Ruskinn, a global leader in the design and development of anaerobic and precision low-oxygen cell culture solutions for research labs involved in cancer, stem cell and microbiology studies introduces VelO2x, a Rapid Oxygen Control Chamber.

Ideal for fast O2 transition studies, the VelO2x system is designed to provide a controlled and isolated environment where rapid changes in O2 is required, ideal for use within animal research models. VelO2x allows the researcher to better understand the impact that rapidly changing oxygen levels has in conditions such as sleep apnea, hypertension, pulmonary dysfunction and ischemia and others.

The VelO2x system features Baker Ruskinn’s proprietary gas mixing technology, the ICONIC Gas Mixer, to provide pinpoint control of O2 directly to the chamber. Other key features of the VelO2x include:

  • Chamber designed to accommodate at least 2 small animal cages
  • O2 Control: 0.1% to 23.0%
  • Rapid change in O2 levels: 20.9% to 6% in 50 seconds, 6% to 20.9% in 40 seconds* (example)

Relevant Research Applications include but are not limited to:

  • Apnea
  • Ocular Angiogenesis
  • Atherosclerosis
  • Ischemia
  • Recreational Hypoxia (athletic conditioning)
  • Occupational Hypoxia (altitude sickness, airline, observatory astronomers, mining)

In addition to the VelO2x, Baker & Baker Ruskinn feature the following complimentary equipment solution:

  • InvivO2 Physiological Oxygen, Cell Culture Workstations are designed and built to mimic the physiology of your subject matter, giving you the reassurance of precise results under controlled conditions.
  • SterilGARD® e3 Animal Transfer Station (ATS) Class II Type A2 Biological Safety Cabinets from Baker provide proven air containment and contamination controlled technology that saves energy, increases productivity and improves worker safety.
  • AniGARD® e3 Animal Transfer Stations combines improved containment and enhanced ergonomics with lower energy requirements to provide you with unrivalled performance and protection. The AniGARD e3 provides ISO Class 4 (Class 10) air cleanliness, and is designed to protect animals from contaminants and reduce user exposure to allergens.

About Baker

The Baker Company has long been identified as an industry pioneer in the field of biological safety with an unparalleled passion for helping its customers advance science, discovery and clinical care. The company was first established back in 1949 in response to a growing need to protect hospital workers from infectious diseases and the dangerous process of drug preparation. As solutions for air containment and contamination control have evolved over the years, The Baker Company has been at the forefront of design and innovation, always believing that there are no shortcuts and that there should be no minimum standards applied to the solutions that they supply.

In 2011, the company acquired Ruskinn Technology Ltd., one of the world’s leading suppliers of gas-controlled, anaerobic, and modified atmosphere workstations for use in medical microbiology, cell biology, cancer research, molecular medicine and stem cell laboratories.
