Oxygen measurement facilities

We have facilities for measuring the oxygen dependence of drug metabolism and cytotoxicity. This consists of a customised gas manifold system for incubating cell suspensions, which allows up to six gas-phase oxygen concentrations for controlled atmosphere studies. Oxygen concentrations in solution can be monitored using the Pyroscience FirestingO2 fibre optic oxygen probes. Drug metabolism is measured by the LC/MS mass spectrometer and cytotoxicity by clonogenic and other assays.
