Extensive research and careful consideration has gone into the development of the i2, which has resulted in a modular system that includes a number of novel and unique features. This workstation can be used as a stand-alone unit or connected to a Whitley Hypoxystation via the new Whitley Transfer Tunnel, enabling preparation of cell lines under hypoxic conditions and their transfer directly into the i2 without exposure to air.
This workstation is equipped with a generous working area in which to conduct preparatory work and is supplied complete with removable front, internal mains sockets, and a wireless footswitch to control the patented oval ports.
Another unique feature is the integral incubator, which enables you to precondition cellware and incubate plates and media at 37°C under the same atmospheric conditions as the XF Analyzer.
If your research requires unsurpassed accuracy, reproducibility and reliability, then insist on a Whitley Workstation.
- The i2 maintains an internal temperature no higher than 28°C, excludes carbon dioxide, and provides precise oxygen control.
- The 12 litre airlock, with a cycle time of just 60 seconds, accommodates up to 7 x 0.5 litre bottles, 44 × 96 well plates or 84 × T25 tissue culture flasks plus numerous other flasks, pipettes and laboratory consumables.
- The Whitley i2 Instrument Workstation is one of a range of larger Whitley Workstations developed to allow customers to use a variety of items of specialised equipment under modified atmospheric conditions.
- The combination of a Whitley i2 Instrument Workstation and Seahorse XF Analyzer permits simultaneous, real-time analysis of mitochondrial respiration and glycolysis in mammalian cells under precisely controlled hypoxic conditions.
