Glove Boxes, Cabinets Are Fully Customizable

Coy offers a complete line of glove boxes and cabinets that enable researchers to maintain desired levels of CO2, temperature and humidity, along with oxygen control. The modular design allows the company to configure systems, including custom designs, to meet researcher-specific needs, whether for tissue culture or live animal studies. O2 Tissue Culture Glove Boxes typically comprise controls for oxygen, with CO2, temperature and humidity. Think of these glove boxes as an incubator with gloves. Opening an incubator or working in a tissue culture hood exposes cells to non-experimental conditions that may affect results. Remove this experimental uncertainty by performing incubation, culture maintenance and analysis in the same glove box environment. Saturated humidity is maintained in a separate humidified box located inside the glove box. An internal dehumidifier maintains the glove box at noncondensing moisture levels allowing instrumentation, such as microscopes, to be used inside the glove box. InVitro cabinets are a suited solution if for the control of multiple, simultaneous O2 levels, or the desire to add O2 control to an existing CO2 incubator. O2 Animal Study Glove Boxes allow access to cages and the ability to change food and water quickly and easily while maintaining desired O2 levels. Options include airlocks custom-sized to cages, humidity control and gaseous waste removal. InVivo cabinets allow short-term studies where waste removal is not critical. They can be used for longer-term studies when disruption of the controlled environment for animal care does not cause an issue.
