ALL of our anaerobic chambers include on-site installation and user training provided by Anaerobe Systems. ALL chambers include one person to attend, free of charge, our Advanced Anaerobic Bacteriology Course. This 2.5 day hands on, lab based course covers the major topics in anaerobic bacteriology workup including specimen collection & transport, primary set up and isolation, culture media selection, identification techniques, and oxygen toxicity. Students work inside the anaerobe chamber with live mixed culture anaerobes to isolate and identify them. More in depth chamber troubleshooting, maintenance, and general use techniques are also covered.

AS-150 Features and Benefits

The AS-150 gloveless anaerobic chamber is our entry level chamber with fewer features and less workspace, but with a lower cost and smaller footprint. The AS-150 is ideal for smaller labs that typically have fewer than 100 plates in their incubator, or labs that don’t have the space or budget for a larger chamber. A unique feature of the AS-150 is it’s ability to be installed as a single or double wide unit, and can be modified in the lab after it’s been set up in a different configuration.

  • 150 plate capacity enclosed incubator
  • Low-cost cost, basic anaerobic functionality
  • Palladium oxygen removal catalyst (baked daily to clean)
  • Vacuum-less airlock cycle and sleeve entry
  • Small footprint & space requirements
  • Modular expandable design to double chamber size
  • Interior work area 36″ W x 24″ D

Prices starting at $19,950 includes on site installation & 2.5 day training
Discounts available for non-profit research & government institutions

Used/Refurbished Anaerobic Chambers

Anaerobe Systems occasionally will have used anaerobic chambers which come from show models, leased & returned chambers, and/or buy backs. These chambers may be purchased at a reduced price. Used chambers will have wear & tear parts replaced including oxygen removal catalyst, sleeves, and cuffs.  The anaerobic chamber will undergo the same quality control testing and verification procedure as a new chamber would before leaving our facility. A 3 month, parts-only warranty is included with all refurbished anaerobic chamber purchases. We offer the option (for an additional charge) of on-site installation by Anaerobe Systems which will extend the warranty to a full 1 year parts/labor warranty, the same as a new chamber. Customers purchasing a refurbished chamber may also send someone to our 2.5 day extended training for 50% off the list price.
