PurityPlus® Applied: CO2 for Springfield-area Medical Research Involving CO2 Incubators


As it is, CO2 – perhaps equally well known as carbon dioxide – has been the recipient of much bad press in recent times. As the most notable of Earth’s greenhouse gases, reportedlyextreme concentrations of it reportedly produced by the increased activity of swelling human populations are blamed for global warming. We’ll let the scientists27 debate this, the science being decidedly not settled. Instead, we’ll concentrate on the good uses to which CO2 can be put. And there’s no more beneficial a use, conceivably, in the Springfield area than in CO2 incubators.

CO2 incubators are invaluable tools in medical research. They’re used to contain cell cultures that must be cared for in as sterile an environment as possible. Different kinds of CO2 incubators ward off contamination in the incubation chamber by different methods, relative to the kinds of cells being studied. Most often CO2 incubators are employed in stem cell therapy, regenerative medicine, and plastic surgery.

In effect, what a CO2 incubator does is sustain cell cultures at the perfect temperature and moisture to maintain optimum pH levels. CO2 gas from a cylinder is introduced into a carbonate buffer medium within the incubator so as to keep the pH constant. This is particularly crucial for …

  • incubating human skin cells to provide life-saving skin grafts,
  • stem cell research directed at combatting disease,
  • stem cell therapy put forward as an alternative to surgery,
  • plastic surgery, tissue repair, and dermatological treatments,
  • anti-aging therapies, and
  • the multiplication of human cells to support healing processes in regenerative medicine.
