Availablility: By Availability

This Instrument is used to expose mice to various levels of Oxygen and/or Carbon Dioxide. Our system has 4 independent chambers, with glove box access. The [O2] is controlled by an Oxycycler A84VOX controller. The [CO2] is controlled by an Oxycycler A44C controller. Each Oxycycler is capable of controlling the environment in all 4 chambers with separate custom CO2 and O2 mixes The CO2 and O2 are balanced with Nitrogen. Humidity is addressed by allowing gas release to the outside by adjustable vents plugs. Each chamber can hold up to 6 standard mouse cages with vented covers. The air in the chambers is circulated in the chamber with small integrated fans. In addition, a fifth small chamber can be fitted to the system (3 cages limit).

This system requires weekly calibration by the MPPC/Boron Lab staff.
