PurityPlus® Applied: CO2 for Columbus-area Medical Research Involving CO2 Incubators


As it is, CO2 – perhaps equally well known as carbon dioxide – has gotten loads of bad press in modern times. As the most noteworthy of Earth’s greenhouse gases, reportedlyexcessive concentrations of it reportedly resulting from the increased activity of rising human populations are blamed for global warming. We’ll let the scientists27 rule on this, the science being far from settled. Instead, we’ll set our sights on the good uses to which CO2 can be put. And there’s no more beneficial a use, perhaps, in the Columbus area than in CO2 incubators.

CO2 incubators are invaluable tools in medical research. They’re used to hold cell cultures that must be studied in as sterile an environment as possible. Different sorts of CO2 incubators ward off contamination in the incubation chamber by different means, relative to the types of cells being observed. Most often CO2 incubators are used in stem cell therapy, regenerative medicine, and plastic surgery.

For the most part, what a CO2 incubator does is keep cell cultures at the optimum temperature and moisture to maintain optimum pH levels. CO2 gas from a cylinder is introduced into a carbonate buffer medium within the incubator as a means of keeping the pH fixed. This is most crucial for …

  • incubating human skin cells for use in life-saving skin grafts,
  • stem cell research devoted to fighting disease,
  • stem cell therapy put forward as an alternative to surgery,
  • plastic surgery, tissue repair, and dermatological treatments,
  • anti-aging therapies, and
  • the multiplication of human cells to aid healing processes in regenerative medicine.
