FAQ: Do I have to use special gases for the ACU?

No, there is no requirement for any special gases when using the ACU just standard laboratory CO2 and N2 (oxygen free). Unique to the ACU the gases are regulated independently and simultaneously which means you can specify any combination of CO2 and O2 without the need to change the gas to supply to an expensive premixed gas.

  • Regulate O2 between 1-19%
  • Regulate CO2 between 0-20%

The FLUOstar Omega and ACU provides a true ‘walk away solution’ for your long term cell based assays, it avoids the need to transfer plates from your incubators to the reader thus saves user intervention time and avoids exposing your cells to atmospheric conditions. The ACU and Omega combination is good for many cell based assays including migration and proliferation but is especially designed for those assays where hypoxia or ischemia/reperfusion is being investigated.

BMG LABTECH is holding a Cell Based Assays User Group Meeting on December 6th at the John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford. If you are currently performing cell based assays or are planning to start a new project in this area join us for an afternoon of interesting presentations highlighting new and innovative techniques in this field.
