The Whitley M55 Workstation is a 4-gas system that provides a huge working capacity when there is a need to process, culture and examine samples in a sustainable, variable atmosphere environment. It has built-in oxygen, carbon dioxide and hydrogen sensors. This allows users to programme precise gas concentrations, which is perfect for manipulating samples in a sustainable environment. The Whitley M Range of 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.
M Range Workstations were originally designed for the study and isolation of microaerophilic organisms such as Campylobacter spp, Helicobacter pylori and other similarly fastidious organisms. Due to the flexibility of the atmospheric control (from 0% to 20% oxygen), these systems are now widely used for both microbiology and cell culture applications.
The M55 has two airlocks (one on the left and one on the right) and has a huge capacity of 600 litres. Two people can easily work side-by-side in this chamber, in the same environmental conditions.
If you want to be able to operate your workstation with two different temperature levels, specify the dual temperature option. This provides a central divider between the workstation chambers allowing you to select different temperatures for each side. A manually operated sliding door between the two chambers allows samples to be passed from one area into the other.
A range of optional accessories, such as HEPA Filtration, cable glands, power sockets or a single sample entry system, are available to tailor this workstation to your requirements.
