Anaerobic Chambers

Our anaerobic chambers are designed to create the standard environment conducive for your oxygen-sensitive samples. Furthermore, they are also used for product containment and general isolation. We have a good range of anaerobic chambers here at Yamato. You can use our anaerobic chambers for the following applications:

Cell culture

Cell culture is the process of culturing bacterial cells under controlled conditions. An example is culturing animal cells to produce viruses to understand their biological functions, which will then be used to create vaccines. Anaerobic organisms, however, don’t grow and even die if oxygen is present. Hence, an anaerobic chamber for bacteria is necessary to create an environment that is oxygen-free. The Yamato AC505A/AC515A auto-purge model is a perfect choice for this application because of its one-touch "go anaerobic" switch.

Product containment

Anaerobic chambers are also used in containing products such as biohazardous materials to reduce or eliminate the exposure of lab technicians to these hazardous agents. Samples that need containment are usually pathogenic, which means leakage from the chambers can cause dire consequences.

General isolation

Another use of anaerobic chambers is to isolate anaerobe from other clinical materials. The anaerobes are then cultured into an anaerobic jar. This isolation jar is oxygen-free as a result of a method called anaerobic chamber gas pack.
