Program Your Conditions

Automate any and all changes to the environment, including CO2, temperature, and O2 levels.

  • Simulate ischemic events, hypoxia, and heat shock
  • Automate temperature and light cycles to simulate circadian rhythms
  • Ramp, fluctuate, and stabilize conditions independently
  • Find all code available on GitHub

Hypoxia Incubator

The Model 1 Tri-Gas controls oxygen concentration for better cell viability and performing hypoxia experiments.

  • Provides 1 - 21% oxygen range with 0.1% resolution
  • Simulate ischemic events in cell cultures
  • High-resolution fluorescent quenching technology for O2 measurements
  • No re-calibration required

Open Source

The Model 1 Tri-Gas is built to be hacked and can be easily integrated into any experiment.

  • Easily modifiable and completely modular through its open firmware Arduino system
  • Connect and program sensors such as lighting systems and microscopes with its easy access port
  • Code available on GitHub

Personal Size

At just 10 L and under 20 Lbs, the Model 1 is portable and compact, so every researcher can have their own.

  • Maintain stable conditions by preventing constant opening and closing
  • Prevent cross-contamination
  • Easily fit in your lab, no matter how crowded
  • Portable for working in the field

Additional Features & Add-ons

cell incubator environment data

Real-Time Data Logging

Formulating hypotheses and performing experiments means nothing if you don't have records of it all. With our open platform, you can directly monitor and store the history of your experimental conditions.

LED Lighting (Add-On)

Whether you're performing photo light therapy experiments or regulating the breeding cycles of zebrafish, the Model 1 can light it all. Open access to the program means you can specify any light cycling or patterning for your experiment. Interested? Contact us to learn more.
