FAQs

Anoxomat uses the widely known McIntosh and Fildes system of evacuation and replacement to create anaerobic environments. During the anaerobic evacuation cycle, oxygen within the jar is replaced with hydrogen. After the anaerobic cycle, a mere 0.16% residual oxygen content is left in the jar, which is then removed by the Palladox catalyst. The anaerobic recipe leaves the jar with a strict zero oxygen level and 10% carbon dioxide mix.

  • Automatic quality control system: Anoxomat checks the environment so you don’t waste time incubating jars in an unstable environment.
  • Streamlines workflow: set up jars and return to bench to continue work.
  • Low maintenance: less down time and no disruption to workflow.
  • Process more samples in-house: smaller labs save money.
  • Process up to 4 jars at a time: Get more done in less time.

The Anoxomat Jar System creates the environment needed for optimal bacterial growth in minutes. There is no lag in sub-optimal conditions for samples, so you get reliable and consistent environments for anaerobic and microaerophilic testing. The environment created by the Anoxomat contains adequate hydrogen levels needed for growth unlike gaspak systems. Studies observed larger colonies in 51.6% of tests with the Anoxomat system vs. gaspak systems. Download our comparison guide of Anoxomat vs. Gaspak systems.

The Anoxomat creates the desired environment within minutes so you can get
your anaerobes in the appropriate environment fast! Even the most sensitive bacteria , such as Porph. asacharolytica, saw growth at 48 hours as opposed to 72 hours with gas-generating sachets. You need trusted growth. Accurate bacterial growth require stable, repeatable environmental conditions so gas mixtures stay within desired values for up to 48 hours.

What our customers say

[The Anoxomat is] very easy to use and efficient, easy to clean and reliable, it was such an improvement from our previous method of heat sealing and anaerobic pouches, I absolutely love these jars!

Magdalena Margiotta

fcina

The small footprint of this instrument is great for our lab! The Anoxomat is a workhorse and has given us very few problems historically. Ease of use among many users and quality, reproducible results are a given with this instrument.

Jessica Gabriel

Northside Hospital Gwinnett

Anoxomat is the best anaerobic system. In our lab settings, anaerobic bacteria's isolated from deep tissue and fluid samples using this system with flexibility while maintaining quality. Besides anaerobic environment, it can also provide microaerophilic, or custom environments, such as capnophilic, depending on requirements. It also offers users the ability to program recipes with the optional “User-Generated Recipes” function.

Asma Siddiqua

SKMCH&RC

We have no problems recovering fastidious anaerobes and microaerophilic organisms such as Campylobacter. The [Anoxomat] instrument is easy to use with very few problems. Our techs like the disposable sachets ... there is one less task for the techs to monitor and perform.

Terry O'Donnell

Mount Carmel Health System

Ease of use and reproducibility of results are excellent. I would recommend [Anoxomat] for any microbiology department to ensure proper anaerobic conditions are met!

Stefanie Taitano

Keesler Air Force Base

The Anoxomat system is easy to use, has very little maintenance and consistently gives good growth of quality control organisms.

Janet Reynolds

Grandview Medical Center

The Anoxomat has been extremely useful in the growth and care of anaerobic cultures in my laboratory and allows us for advanced patient care when it comes to cultures that grow a variety of microbiological organisms. At the push of a button, we are able to simulate anaerobic conditions ideal for their growth.

Scott Connolly

VA Boston Healthcare

The Anoxomat III is an efficient instrument. It continues to provide anaerobic conditions for our anaerobic chambers with consistent results. It is relatively easy to use. You can add additional plates to a jar after it has been charged, just remember to let the jar come to atmospheric conditions for a minute before you recharge it. ...
