The Whitley M45 Workstation is a 4-gas system with built-in oxygen, carbon dioxide and hydrogen sensors, which allows users to programme precise gas concentrations.
Whitley M Range Workstations provide the most flexibility of any models in the Don Whitley Scientific range, allowing anoxic/anaerobic, microaerobic or hypoxic atmospheres to be created if desired without the need to change incoming gases.
Originally designed for studying, isolating and manipulating samples such as Campylobacter spp, Helicobacter pylori and other similarly fastidious microaerophiles in a sustainable microaerobic environment, the flexibility of atmospheric control (from 0% to 20% oxygen) that these workstations provide enables them to be used for both microbiology and cell culture applications. As with our other microaerobic and anaerobic workstations, the M45 can be specified with the Whitley Automatic Humidification System. This is particularly relevant as tests in our in-house laboratory have indicated that Campylobacter colonies grow larger and exhibit more typical morphology when incubated in an atmosphere with elevated humidity (at least 75% RH).
The M45 has three ports for convenient user access to the entire incubation and working areas and can accommodate up to 900 x 90mm Petri dishes. The optional Whitley Internal HEPA Filtration System quickly creates and maintains a particle-free environment that exceeds the requirements stipulated by ISO 14644 Class 3.
