This latest addition to the SHEL LAB Bactron line offers precise oxygen control ranging from 1% to 20% for microaerophilic bacteriology and hypoxic tissue or cell culture applications. It has the additional capability of controlling carbon dioxide from 1% to 20%. The SHEL LAB Bactrox permits oxygen and carbon dioxide control in increments of 1/10th of a percent.

Unlike a tri-gas incubator, the Bactrox allows for microaerophilic bacteriology and hypoxic tissue or cell culture work to be performed in desired oxygen conditions throughout all culturing processes. The Bactrox is a complete workstation so bacteria and cells are more likely to grow faster and show less damage.
