• Can accommodate a wide variety of cell types, including animal, bacteria, fungi, plant, Drosophila, C. elegans

  • Perfect for short-term physiological experiments

  • Control CO2, O2, and temperature precisely

  • Facilitates nondisruptive benchtop high-resolution live cell imaging under physoxia/hypoxia

  • Ideal for research where cells are irradiated to induce cancer-like conditions

  • Portable physoxia tool

OxyGenie is a low-oxygen culture system for animal, plant, bacteria, and even whole organism biology. A miniaturized incubation platform, OxyGenie brings researchers a small, portable, and continuous physoxic (hypoxic) environment for short-term physiological oxygen- and temperature-based studies.

OxyGenie is ideal for conducting high-resolution microscopy or irradiation under physiologically relevant oxygen conditions, further extending the time in which your cells can be exposed to in vivo-like cell growth conditions. OxyGenie is a notable tool with minimal risk for start-up validation or use in proof of concept for physiological cell culture within your lab. 6 culture wells facilitate completely enclosed physiological growth conditions, seated on microscope glass, allowing for adaptation to any experimental procedure.

All life science researchers can now utilize technology delivering controlled, physiologically relevant conditions at an economical price! Get results equivalent to research carried out within a hypoxic incubator or workstation with the OxyGenie.

Full physiological control

OxyGenie provides for a continuous, physoxic/hypoxic environment for your cells. It is a unique, miniaturized incubation platform designed to deliver the physiological O2 and CO2 conditions your cells require to thrive. A temperature-controlled instrument that facilitates efficient gas delivery, providing the specific concentration of O2 and CO2 your research and cells require. May also be utilized in conjunction with short-term studies requiring other gas-controlled culture conditions.

Fully portable

Transport cells within the OxyGenie from lab to lab, floor to floor, and building to building under total physoxia! OxyGenie provides non-disruptive culture conditions for up to 2 hours without needing to reconnect the device to a power source.

Irradiate and microscope functionality under physoxia

Ideal for conducting high-resolution microscopy or irradiation studies under continuous physoxia, further expanding the time in which your cells are exposed to in vivo-like cell growth conditions.
