Model BACTRON300, 16.0 Cu.Ft. (453 L) Anaerobic Chamber, 300 Plate Capacity

An economical anaerobic environment system with air lock, a 16.0 cu.ft. workspace and a 300 plate capacity incubator allow the BACTRON300 to deliver optimum productivity in a compact space. The operator has total command of the work area, yet enjoys ample bench space for efficient performance of all procedures requiring an anaerobic atmosphere.

BACTRON systems have an airtight construction of stainless steel and rigid acrylic glass for unobstructed vision and integrity. The cuffs form a comfortable seal around the operator’s arms permitting bare hand manipulation of plates and specimens inside the working chamber, making work more comfortable and efficient.
When sitting undisturbed at a steady state, a BACTRON typically rests at lower than 4.7 parts per million oxygen in the workspace chamber.

Chamber atmosphere circulates through a condensate controller then through a catalyst, which removes any trace amounts of oxygen. High relative humidity is maintained while condensate moisture is removed without the unnecessary desiccants, which can dehydrate media and samples. Each unit contains an integral vacuum pump to provide rapid evacuation of air from the airlock module for replacement by an inert gas mixture.

For over 20 years, BACTRON has been a powerhouse in the anaerobic chamber market. BACTRON units now feature:
• Low Gas Supply Alarm
• Integrated Vacuum Pump
• 60% Faster Airlock Cycle
• Auto-Sleeve Cycle with Integrated HEPA Filter
• Integrated Internal Regulators
• Inner Door Lock
• 40% Faster Sleeve Cycle
• Faster Installation
• User Adjustable Airlock Cycling
• Auto-Commissioning Cycle
• Easy-to-Access, Replaceable HEPA Filters
• New side access panel, standard.
• Gas regulator not included, available for purchase
• 2 Year Warranty  

Worry free sample preparation and incubation

Anaerobes that are exposed to oxygen die or grow more slowly. Unlike anaerobic jars, which expose samples to oxygen during plating, isolation, sub-culturing and susceptibility testing, the Bactron line features a complete workstation where samples can be prepared, incubated and evaluated in an oxygen free environment.
Faster, more reliable diagnoses in critical patient situations

The user has complete access to individual samples within the incubator and may determine the presence of anaerobic bacteria at any time during incubation. In addition, increasing attention to hospital acquired infections has made quick, accurate detection of anaerobes that cause infections extremely important.


We take customer safety seriously. Unlike many anaerobic chambers that do not carry any safety mark or are self-certified internally (CE marked), the BACTRON family of chambers carries a full third party verified safety compliance certificates. Our anaerobic chambers meet EN61010, UL61010, and Can/CSA61010 standards.
