PurityPlus® Applied: CO2 for Atlanta, GA-area Medical Research Involving CO2 Incubators


As it is, CO2 – perhaps equally well known as carbon dioxide – has received a lot of bad press in modern times. As the most noteworthy of Earth’s greenhouse gases, supposedly extreme concentrations of it supposedly produced by the increased activity of ballooning human populations are blamed for global warming. We’ll let the scientists27 sort this out, the science being nowhere near settled. Instead, we’ll set our sights on the good uses to which CO2 can be put. And there’s no more constructive a use, possibly, in the Atlanta, GA area than in CO2 incubators.

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

More or less, what a CO2 incubator does is keep cell cultures at the ideal temperature and moisture to maintain optimum pH levels. CO2 gas from a cylinder is inserted into a carbonate buffer medium within the incubator as a means of keeping the pH stable. This is especially critical for …

  • incubating human skin cells to provide life-saving skin grafts,
  • stem cell research directed at combatting disease,
  • stem cell therapy offered as an alternative to surgery,
  • plastic surgery, tissue repair, and dermatological treatments,
  • anti-aging therapies, and
  • the multiplication of human cells to support healing processes in regenerative medicine.
