Altitude / Aerospace
There is a limited understanding of hypoxia and hypoxemia at high altitude. Accurate models are needed for understanding altitude sickness, acute mountain sickness, hypertension, and even cerebral edema resulting from travel to high elevations.
Hypoxia chambers, for both cellular and in vivo models, help reproduce mimic acute or also chronic exposure to reduced oxygen partial pressure at high altitude. Controlled programming of dynamic O2 levels can mimic ascent, descent, and therapeutic administration of oxygen.
ProOx C21 & C-Chamber
Hypoxia chambers and oxygen chambers from BioSpherix Ltd set the conditions for reproducible altitude research. In cell-based research, the ProOx C21 & C-Chamber is an in vitro hypoxia chamber for static control of O2 and CO2. Another configuration, the OxyCycler C42 & C-Chamber, is used for cell experiments requiring programmed, dynamic changes of O2 and CO2.
