The C-Shuttle is part of a practical system for handling your cells under the same conditions at which they incubate. It provides ample workspace where you can handle and manipulate your cells without disruption of O2 and/or CO2.
FULL TIME OPTIMIZATION DURING CELL HANDLING
Interruption in optimal O2 and/or CO2 conditions can have major effects on cell cultures. Normally when cells are manipulated outside their incubator in clean hoods, controlled gases such as CO2 and O2 are disrupted. Effects can be devastating on cultures. Consider oxygen regulated genes. Hypoxia upregulated genes are immediately shut off by even brief exposures to room air. Imagine what can happen to receptors, ion channels, cytokines, extracellular matrix, etc. when the pH changes out of the physiologic range!
DOCKS SUBCHAMBERS FROM REMOTE INCUBATORS
Using a transport vessel such as the BioSpherix C-Chamber between the C-Shuttle and your incubator is the most economical way to achieve uninterrupted conditions. The incubator protects cells from exposure. The transport chamber maintains conditions for the brief period between controlled environments. The C-Shuttle is controlled, and the buffer chamber allows your cells to enter without disrupting the set environment within.
