HYPOXIA

BLOOD OXYGEN LEVELS

TARGET OF THE PROJECT

Hypoxia in Preclinical Imaging

Description of the Application.

Calico Labs, an American research and development biotech company founded on 2013 and backed by Google with the goal of combating aging and associated diseases. Calico Labs uses the gas mixer in an experimental setup to study hypoxia in rodents, and generate a gas mix to expose rodents to defined lower O2 concentrations. They adjust the O2 concentration on the fly to achieve target blood oxygen levels.

Benefits and Savings.

Buying cylinders of natural gas blends is expensive and limits the availability of mixtures that may be required. Gas cylinders are also large and often require special storage arrangements, as well as taking up valuable space. By using the MCQ gas blender it is possible to create a gas mixture at any time, to a certain degree, and different concentrations. The ability to blend gas on-demand is an incredibly powerful tool and provides a level of flexibility that gas cylinders cannot provide

GAS FLOW CONTROL

Gas Blender vs Gas Cylinder

The ability to blend O2 simulations on-demand is an incredibly powerful tool in the development and provides a level of flexibility that gas cylinders cannot provide.

High Accuracy for low flow rate

Thanks to our revolutionary method without the Cut-Off, every gas flow has an high accuracy making possible to have a stable flow also for lower flow-range.

Flexibility

By using the MCQ gas blender it is possible to dial up a simulation of hypoxia condition at any time, and to a certain degree, different concentrations of O2.

Micro Flow Rates - No CUT-OFF

Our GB100 Series allows the Calico Labs to control the flow in all the calibration range, from 0,1 ml/min to 500 ml/min with NO cut-off.

Easy-to-use Software

Thanks to our Software PRO Version and its easy-touse user interface, now the Calico Labs can easy set all the experiment through our software.

Successful Achievement

The MCQ gas blender is used to adjust the O2 concentration on the fly to achieve target blood oxygen levels.
