Anaerobes are organisms that can grow without oxygen. Some can live when oxygen is present (facultative) and some cannot tolerate even a trace of oxygen (strict or obligatory). Anaerobes are very prevalent, many are part of the normal human flora, and make up an estimated 50% of Earth?s biota. Dozens of common infections are either exclusively anaerobic or are mixed aerobic/anaerobes. Some obligatory anaerobes may cause serious infections such as tetanus, gas gangrene, or botulism (through tainted food products). Therefore, isolation and identification of anaerobes are very important in clinical diagnoses and research, and in commercial processes such as canning,
bottling (e.g. beer and other fermented beverages), and food fermentation. BACTRON anaerobic chambers have made a strong name for themselves over the past twenty years as more and more labs have realized the cost savings in moving from vacuum jars or bags to anaerobic workstations.
BACTRON anaerobic and environment chambers provide glove-free handling of samples with a consistent, oxygen- free environment that promotes faster sample turnaround. Modular equipment within the chamber facilitates the completion of basic workflow procedures from unpacking of materials to inoculation, incubation, inspection, and recovery.
Technology is constantly evolving so we kept the features that make the BACTRON an industry leader and upgraded others to maximize efficiency. Here are a few ways BACTRON is the right fit for your process:
Low Gas Supply Alarm
New audible and visual alarm notifies user that the AMG supply is low.
Operators can change the cylinder while the chamber atmosphere stays anaerobic.
Integrated Vacuum Pump
Eliminates vacuum pump connections during installation.
60% Faster Airlock Cycle
The biggest airlock on the market is now the fastest, getting samples into the chamber 2X faster than before.
Auto-Sleeve Cycle with Integrated HEPA Filter
No more guesswork or operator variation; automated ultra-efficient sleeve cycles with one press of the foot switch.
Integrated Internal Regulators
Protect all the internal components from incorrect cylinder settings.
Ensure consistent and reproducible gas delivery to all chamber processes.
Inner Door Lock
?Smart? lock prevents airlock opening during aerobic conditions.
Prevents operator error and introduction of oxygen to critical samples.
40% Faster Sleeve Cycle
Reduce operator waiting time.
BACTRON installation in as little as 30 minutes.
?Plug and Play? installation with integrated connections.
User Adjustable Airlock Cycling
Customize your airlock cycle to fit your time and budget.
Do you need precision or are you just in a hurry? Pick from 3, 4 or 5 auto cycle iterations.
The single button auto-commissioning cycle automatically creates an anaerobic atmosphere; press the button and walk away while the chamber becomes anaerobic.
Easy-to-Access, Replaceable HEPA Filters
Protect your internal atmosphere with HEPA filters on incoming gas supplies.
Comfortable, sleeve cuff seals around operators arm to permit barehanded manipulation of specimens in the chamber. Elimination of bulky gloves makes work comfortable and efficient.
Arm Port Doors
Unique ergonomic design reduces fatigue for the user. Sealed, access doors are removed when entering the working
anaerobic chamber. The doors are kept on holders inside the chamber while the user’s arms are inserted into the sleeves. Operator replaces and seals the doors when leaving the chamber, thus closing the system and maintaining a strict anaerobic environment.
Shelf inside the airlock module slides into the chamber and makes loading of materials and samples easier.
Oxygen Catalyst and Humidity Controls
The anaerobic chamber atmosphere circulates through a condensate removal system and then through a catalyst that eliminates any trace amounts of oxygen.
The chamber is equipped with an automatic pressure control that provides positive pressure at approximately 0.5 inches
of water column pressure. The internal manometer provides a clear view of the pressure level.
BACTRON600 and 900’s large incubator contains revolving shelves for efficient and convenient use of storage space.
Ultra-bright LED light fixture illuminates chamber interior. (Sold separately for BACTRONEZ).
