Importance of Culturing Cells in Hypoxia


Why is it important to be able to culture cells in low oxygen? In this video, renowned cell biologist, Dr Violaine See (University of Liverpool) details some of her recent work and explains the significance of a hypoxic environment in determining her results.

Dr See’s research focuses on hypoxia signalling, especially on the important role of hypoxia-inducible factor timing to control cell fate and drug resistance. Dr See (pictured left)  has used a Whitley H35 Hypoxystation for the past six years, and said of the machine:

“We are very happy with it, because it is reliable and we get an excellent support service.”
