Galaxy 48 R incubators feature an integrated and heated outer-door window to allow viewing your cultures without compromising the culture environment.
They are ideally suited for hypoxic applications, including in-vitro fertilization (IVF) and stem cell research, with O2 control option. The relatively compact 48L chamber substantially reduces the significant gas consumption often encountered when using larger incubators.
Features • Convenient benchtop size and footprint — only 48 x 47 cm [18.9” x 18.5”]. • Integrated, heated, viewing window in outer door allows observation without disturbing cultures. • Seamless, fanless design. • RS-232 and 25mm access port. • Stackable. • Low gas consumption. • Perforated shelving to facilitate faster recoveries. • Large volume humidity pan. • CO2 HEPA filtration
Options • High-temperature disinfection. • O2 control (Choose 1-19%, 0.1-19%, 1-95%). • Two split inner glass doors. • Humidity alert package (display and alarm). • BMS management system relays.
Mitochondria Shown to Trigger Cell Ageing An international team of scientists has for the first time shown that mitochondria, the batteries of the cells, are essential for ageing.Cancer Cells Kill Off Healthy Neighbours Cancer cells create space to grow by killing off surrounding healthy cells, according to UK researchers working with fruit flies.Editing of Embryos Approved in the UK The Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HFEA) has approved a research application from the Francis Crick Institute to use new "gene editing" techniques on human embryos.Microbes Take Their Vitamins Scientists exploit organisms' needs in order to track 'vitamin mimics' in bacteria.Machine Learning Uncovers Unknown Bacterial Features Technique robustly identified characteristic gene expression patterns in response to antibiotics, low oxygen conditions.CRISPR-Cas9 Gene Editing Advances Again UC Berkeley researchers have made a major improvement in CRISPR-Cas9 technology that achieves an unprecedented success rate of 60 percent when replacing a short stretch of DNA with another.Disrupting Cell’s Supply Chain Freezes Cancer Virus When the cancer-causing Epstein-Barr virus moves into a B-cell of the human immune system, it tricks the cell into rapidly making more copies of itself, each of which will carry the virus. Why Do Some Infections Persist? In preparing for the possibility of an antibiotic onslaught, some bacterial cultures adopt an all-for-one/one-for-all strategy that would make a socialist proud, University of Vermont researchers have found. ASCB: A CELLebration of Cell Biology The last major congress of the year, ASCB is less a platform for launching new products, but one for confirming and consolidating the trends that have emerged over the past 12 months. Squeezing Cells into Stem Cells EPFL scientists have developed a new method that helps cells turn in usable stem cells. The new approach involves “squeezing” cells with a gel, and paves the way for large-scale production of stem cells for medical purposes.
