New gas ramping function enables world’s first in vitro reproduction of ischaemia/reperfusion conditions in a microplate reader

BMG LABTECH developed a new gas ramping function that can fully manipulate the environment within a microplate reader, by mimicking in vitro hypoxia and ischaemia/reperfusion. Equipped with this unique feature, the CLARIOstar® with Atmospheric Control Unit (ACU) is the first plate reader that is able to rapidly return to physiological gas conditions upon active modification of oxygen (02) and carbon dioxide (CO2) tensions within the reader, reproducing disease-specific settings in live cell-based assays. The use of conditions that resemble as close as possible physiological or pathological conditions results in more reliable in vitro data that better translate to in vivo situations.
