Bactron Anaerobic/Environmental Chambers

Horizontal Tabs


The Shel Lab Bactron anaerobic / environmental chambers allow efficient and easy glove-free processing of samples.
Each Bactron chamber has a durable, powder-coated stainless steel body with a plexiglass front, an internal incubator with a capacity range of 300 to 900 Petri plates (depending on the model) and a temperature range of ambient +5°C to 70°C, a large ambient temperature workspace, arm sleeves without gloves which are available in 3 sizes and fit perfectly around the user’s arm, foot pedals to evacuate oxygen and add anaerobic gas to the sleeves, an airlock with indicator light to facilitate an oxygen-free transfer of samples and supplies into the chamber, a condensate controller for a condensation-free work area and a fog-free viewing, a microprocessor controller for optimal temperature control, an independent over-temperature safety limit, a pressure relief system for comfort and maintenance, Petri plate racks, catalyst cartridges for increased anaerobic results and efficiency and a vacuum pump with hoses and fittings.

The main difference between the various Bactron chambers (BactronEZ-2, Bactron300-2, Bactron600-2, Bactron900-2 and Bactrox-2) is the size of the unit and the related interior volume, airlock volume and incubator volume. The interior volume ranges from 388 to 498 liters, the airlock volume ranges from 14 to 31 liters and the incubator volume ranges from 48 to 176 liters with a plate capacity of 300 to 900 plates.

The latest addition to the Bactron series is the Bactrox Hypoxia chamber for microaerophilic bacteriology and hypoxic tissue or cell culture applications. It features a precise oxygen control ranging from 1% to 20% and an additional carbon dioxide control also ranging from 1% to 20%, an incubator with a temperature range of ambient +5°C to 70°C with a capacity of 300 plates, an extra-large pass box, immediate access by sleeves, ultra bright LED illumination, independent gas controls, RS232 data collection, condensation control and gas sensors.

A variety of accessories is available for each Bactron chamber, but as this is quite application-dependent it is recommended to contact Elscolab for all information requests.
