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


Unfortunately, CO2 – otherwise known as carbon dioxide – has received a great deal of bad press in modern times. As the most noteworthy of Earth’s greenhouse gases, supposedly excessive concentrations of it supposedly resulting from the increased activity of swelling human populations are blamed for global warming. We’ll let the scientists27 debate this, the science being decidedly not settled. Instead, we’ll concentrate on the good uses to which CO2 can be put. And there’s no more constructive a use, conceivably, in the Denver area than in CO2 incubators.

CO2 incubators are important tools in medical research. They’re used to house cell cultures that must be kept under observation 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 kinds of cells being nurtured. Most often CO2 incubators are used in stem cell therapy, regenerative medicine, and plastic surgery.

Basically, what a CO2 incubator does is maintain cell cultures at the perfect 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 fixed. This is most crucial for …

  • incubating human skin cells to provide life-saving skin grafts,
  • stem cell research dedicated 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 support healing processes in regenerative medicine.
