The Importance of Physiologically Relevant Oxygen Conditions in Cell Biology

Webinar Series


Paving the way to more meaningful science: Labtech introduce’s the Physoxia webinar series to discover the importance of physiologically relevant oxygen in cell research. The only cells that get to see atmospheric oxygen levels are those of the outer layer of the skin. Even as the air enters our lungs, the actual concentration is reduced until at the alveoli we are at 13%, the brain 3-5% and under hypoxic conditions as in tumours, it can be down to 0.1%.

Labtech have created a platform for this growing community with the Physoxia Webinar series, where we host credible scientists to present their work to an online audience, and provide the environment for discussion, questions and even bridging collaborations. Labtech provides the tools to enable cell culture in physiologically relevant oxygen conditions – as cells exist in vivo. Only then is it possible to achieve data that translates correctly for therapies.
