Dynamic O2 & CO2 Controller for Animal Modeling
Bioactive Gas Control System for in vivo:
- Disease Modeling
- Pathology Modeling
- Therapy Modeling
- Multiple chambers
- Multiple set points
- Multiple variables
Chambers can be controlled in many combinations. This includes simultaneous, independent gas control, different gas percentages in different chambers, or identical conditions at different times. You can independently control and profile two chambers at the same time, which means you have one control profile and one experimental profile.
O2 is a widely used single gas system for hypoxia and hyperoxia. CO2 is an animal off-gas that must be managed, but is also useful in modeling. N2 is biologically neutral, and thus used toflush chambers and lower either O2 or CO2 concentrations without interfering with the experiment. The OxyCycler A42OC manages the three simultaneously with a single controller.
CONTROL IS EFFICIENT
Feedback from the adapter pod’s sensors tells the OxyCycler A42OC the exact amount of gas to infuse. No gas is ever wasted. Recovery after access is rapid within the BioSpherix sub chambers, which avoids prolonged deviations from the set-point.
The gas concentration can be programmed to change at any time. Simply program a series of setpoints each associated with a separate time. Intermittent hypoxia is a common example.
Dynamic control allows the operator the unique ability of simulating natural conditions, as well as creating and manipulating new artificial conditions.
OPERATION IS SIMPLE
Once installed and configured, it’s easy. Check the calibration once in a while and don’t run out of gas. Otherwise it’s all automatic. The system can work continuously year round, or on occasion as needed.
