LIVE CELL MICROSCOPY OPTIMIZATION
The OxyStreamer provides two identical streams of any mix of oxygen and carbon dioxide gas without the use of premixed gas cylinders. The two output streams can be used to simultaneously condition the atmosphere in microscope stage mount cell culture incubators/chambers and the dissolved O2 and CO2 levels in media or perfusate.
AVOID HASSLES & EXPENSE OF PRE-MIXED GAS
By independently monitoring and controlling O2 and CO2 concentrations of the streams, the OxyStreamer can monitor and proportionally mix (blend) oxygen, carbon dioxide and nitrogen gases into any O2 and CO2 concentration in real time.
FULL RANGE O2/CO2 OPTIMIZATION
The OxyStreamer is easy to use. After calibrating the sensors, the desired concentrations for O2 (0.1-99.9%) and CO2 (0.1-20.0%) are simply entered into their respective controllers. The closed-loop dynamic gas control system will then automatically monitor and adjust the output stream of gas to the pre-programmed gas ratios in the controllers. This technique will maintain the output mixed gas concentration to within 0.2% of the selected setpoint levels.
LIQUID & GAS PHASE SIMULTANEOUSLY
The flow rate for each stream is independently controlled for gas efficiency to provide a reproducible rate at which the gas is delivered to the cell culture chamber and/or diffused into the cell culture media or perfusate.
