Microaerophilic Workstations

Whitley Variable Atmosphere Workstations are used primarily in the study and isolation of microaerophilic organisms such as Campylobacter spp and Helicobacter pylori. Up to 4 gases - nitrogen, carbon dioxide, air and a 10% hydrogen/nitrogen mix - can be combined within safe and varying ratios to provide a specific atmosphere. A microprocessor controls and maintains the selected mixture.
