From the publishers of Stem Cells and Development, this e-book contains curated SC&D articles and educational resources on low-oxygen stem cell studies, as well as how to create the most physiologically-relevant environment for your work.
Physiological normoxia is typically characterized by oxygen levels that are much lower than ambient, often as low as 2% or less. Culturing and working with cells continuously at physiological normoxia, rather than risking any exposure to ambient conditions, prevents abnormal cell interactions and preserves cell viability. Equipment such as tri-gas incubators and hypoxia workstations, as well as protocols for deoxygenating culture media, are often used to simulate normal conditions in the body’s organ systems by providing a low-oxygen incubation and/or workflow environment.The four articles contained in this Stem Cells and Development e-book demonstrate the value of controlling oxygen in stem cell research.
