Hubrecht Organoid Technology

Hubrecht Organoid Technology

HUB (Hubrecht Organoid Technology) in Utrecht, Netherlands.
The focus of organoid research was initially also on cultivating healthy cells, with the ultimate goal of regenerative medicine and cell therapy. In the meantime, the attention has switched to preclinical drug screening and diagnostics and, by extension, personalised medicine. ‘In any case, the road to cell therapy is very long, even longer (and also more uncertain) than the road to launching medicines on the market based on small molecules. However, we noticed that we could grow not only healthy cells but diseased cells as well, such as cancer cells. That opened the door to applications that can be developed a lot faster, for example disease modelling by growing organoids directly from diseased patient tissue. Furthermore, direct cloning of multiple individual cells from primary tumours enabled molecular and functional analysis of tumour heterogeneity. And we can also work with CRISP-mediated genome modification. Human organoids appear to be very receptive to this, which offers an enormous range of possibilities in modelling of malignant transformation and mutagenesis after defect DNA. repair.’

H2O2 Decontamination Cycle (Recommended Optional Feature)

H202 Decontamination FAQ

Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2) Vapor Decontamination is available as an option on these PHCbi Incubators. This system eliminates contamination, Developed with safe and effective cell culture decontamination processes using H2O2 vapor in conjunction with narrow-bandwidth ultraviolet light and copper enriched stainless steel to broaden CO2 incubator application highly regulated, environmentally sensitive cell cultures.

SafeCell UV (Recommended Optional Feature)

Hepa Filter Vs. SafeCell UV FAQ

Alternatively, ultraviolet light can be built into CO2 incubators to decontaminate airflow. Typically, a UV light is located behind a plenum in the back of the incubator. The plenum will shield UV light from the cell cultures. Behind the plenum, the UV lamp decontaminates the moving air within the incubator, ridding any foreign contaminants it may contain in the air or on the humidity pan water surface.

PHCbi’s CO2 incubators are optimized for high-value samples including hard-to-grow and contamination-sensitive media/reagents. Our incubators with touchscreen control panels deliver superior usability, rapid cleaning, and effortless maintenance while keeping the tradition of outstanding environmental stability and precise performance.
A unit employs an integrated tray structure without shelf supports thereby reducing the number of interior components by approximately 80%* and significantly saving cleaning time needed hen changing cells for incubation.

“I need a compact model that is both flexible and a space-saver.”

MCO 50 Litres │ Compact Design

With a compact design, PHCbi’s CO2 incubators can help to save laboratory and research space while still ensuring optimal performance. The size allows for flexibility on counters and stackability when there is not enough floor space. If space is a concern, the compact MCO will be the optimal choice.

MCO Multi-gas Tri-gas Incubators with O2 Control

MCO Multi-gas Tri-gas Incubators with Oxygen Control

With the same features as our CO2 incubators, our multi-gas incubators with O2 oxygen control, have been designed to meet your research needs. Ideal for various cell culture needs that require CO2 and sub-ambient or above-ambient oxygen control. As a result, our tri-gas incubators offer a consistent and stable microbiological cell culture environment.

PHCbi multi-gas incubators achieve more accurate results when culturing cells at physiological oxygen levels. The tri-gas incubator is ideal for cell culturing under hypoxic conditions thereby making it an optimal choice for mammalian tissue research. Studies regarding IVF (in vitro fertilization), have also shown that using CO2 incubators with oxygen control, or sometimes referred to as ivf incubators, have seen a dramatic improvement in embryo development and improved pregnancy rates.
