ShelLab Bactron Chambers

Bactron IV

The Bactron IV system permits volume handling of anaerobic cultures with maximum operator comfort. With a 17 cu.ft workspace and 600 plate capacity incubator, it is the largest, most complete anaerobic environmental system available. It is designed for high volume, yet requires far less bench space than expected for its capacity and performance features.

Bactron systems have airtight construction of stainless steel and rigid Plexiglas for unobstructed vision and integrity. The patented cuffs form a comfortable seal around the operators arms permitting bare hand manipulation of plates and specimens inside the working chamber, making work more comfortable and efficient.

Chamber atmosphere circulates through a condensate controller then through a catalyst which removes any trace amounts of oxygen. High relative humidity is maintained while condensate moisture is removed without the unnecessary dessicants, which can dehydrate media and samples. Each unit comes standard with an integral vacuum pump to provide rapid evacuation of air from the air lock module for replacement by inert gas mixture.

With the exception of gas, everything that is needed for operation is included with purchase, even installation. In addition, every purchase of a Bactron system in the USA includes an operator training workshop in anaerobic bacteriology and use of the system.
