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


Unfortunately, CO2 – aka carbon dioxide – has come in for considerable bad press in modern times. As the most significant of Earth’s greenhouse gases, purportedly extreme concentrations of it purportedly caused by the increased activity of swelling human populations are blamed for global warming. We’ll let the scientists27 work this out, 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, perhaps, in the Mexico 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 hinder contamination in the incubation chamber by different means, relative to the sort of cells being cultivated. Generally CO2 incubators are utilized in stem cell therapy, regenerative medicine, and plastic surgery.

In effect, 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 so as to keep the pH balanced. This is most vital for …

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