VelO₂x

Rapid Oxygen Control Chambers

Baker Ruskinn introduces VelO2x, Rapid Oxygen Control Chambers, ideal for fast O2 transition studies.  

Ideal for Animal Research Models, the VelO2x system is designed to provide controlled and isolated environments. By mimicking the conditions experienced within a diseased state, VelO2x allows the Researcher to better understand the impact that O2 levels have in conditions such as sleep apnea and cardiac arrest. VelO2x comprises an ICONIC Gas Mixer (offering pinpoint control of O2) connected to an isolated chamber (sufficient for certain animals).

Baker Ruskinn is a global leader and supplier of anaerobic and precision low oxygen culture systems for microbiology and tissue/cell culture applications.  Its advanced line of anaerobic chambers, physiological cell culture workstations and media conditioning solutions enable superior research results by providing precisely controlled conditions for anoxic and low-oxygen studies.
