The inability to use the outer ring of wells in a microtiter or multiwell cell culture plate, commonly known as the Edge Effect, has been plaguing researchers for too long. This phenomenon is due to uneven evaporation of the media from these outer wells. Using the tightly controlled relative humidity and quick recovery time after a door opening event of the ReCO2ver™, we can virtually eliminate the Edge Effect seen in 96 and 384 well dishes when tested under extreme circumstances.

On February 23rd the Inaugural Physiological Oxygen Workshop and Educational Initiative which Baker helped to pioneer, was held at King's College London.
In this video, Prof. Nicholas Forsyth, Associate Director of the Institute of Science and Technology at Keele University in the UK, discusses how the use of a hypoxia workstation helped his team to develop a more efficient method of expanding mesenchymal stem cells for potential therapeutic use.
Please join us this Thursday for a free web brief on CO2 incubator humidity control technologies, produced by our friends at Mary Ann Liebert (publishers of Stem Cells and Development).
Cell and translational research often involves complex incubations and manipulations that require precise physiological low-oxygen conditions. For these specialized applications, a hypoxia workstation provides a continuous, controlled environment.
For cell culture applications that require the use of a controlled atmosphere to provide low-oxygen conditions, a media conditioning system can help improve laboratory productivity by quickly reducing the dissolved oxygen content of your culture media to the level your work requires.
The fundamentals for a good research model not only includes the environment under which cells are contained, but also the media in which cells are grown.
