Molecular oxygen is vital for the growth and development of most organisms. Mammals themselves, have evolved a complex functional network to maintain oxygen homeostasis at the tissue level that involves the capture, binding, transport, and delivery of molecular oxygen. Hypoxia and physoxia research encompasses a broad range of disciplines examining the molecular and physiological mechanisms in normal development, pathological conditions, and cancer.

Small Animal Hypoxia Chamber


Ideal for animal research models, the VelO2x system was created to provide controlled and isolated environments. By simulating the conditions experienced within a diseased state, VelO2x allows Researchers to better understand the impact that O2 levels have across various conditions.

Hypoxia Workstation


Ideal for cell researchers, the HypoxyLab has been developed as an exceptional, fully-featured, ergonomically designed and practical combined hypoxia incubator and workstation that delivers a highly stabilized HEPA-filtered environment in which levels of O2, CO2, relative humidity and temperature are all accurately controlled.

Tri-gas Incubator

CO2 Incubator

RWD has developed a highly efficient, intelligent, and stable tri-gas incubator for a plethora of applications. This cell culture incubator includes both standard passive contamination control and a variety of active control methods including HEPA filtration. The D180-P incubator has been thoughtfully designed for uniformity, precision and repeatability of in vitro conditions that replicate the in vivo environment.


Luxury accommodation for cells. The CondoCell provides researchers 2 hypoxia options. 1) it allows them to take cells out of an existing hypoxia chamber and keeps them under those conditions for up to 20 mins and 2) an oxygen purging unit allows for a condo to be quickly purged of O2 for short term hypoxia studies.


OxyGenie is a low oxygen culture system for plant and cell biology. A miniaturized incubation platform, OxyGenie delivers researchers a small, portable and continuous physoxic (hypoxic) environment for short term physiological oxygen and temperature studies. OxyGenie is ideal for conducting high resolution microscopy or irradiation under physiological oxygen conditions

PhO₂x Box

For cell researchers who have a standard CO2 incubator and want the option to perform studies controlling O2, there is the PhO2x Box. Perfect for short term hypoxia studies (where media does not need to be changed). The PhO2x Box grants researchers’ full control of O2 and CO2 while utilizing the temperature and humidity of the incubator.
