Don Whitley Scientific launch the Whitley A20 Workstation, their smallest anaerobic workstation

A Small Workstation with Big Ideas

Don Whitley Scientific is proud to launch their smallest anaerobic workstation: the Whitley A20 Workstation. This anaerobic chamber provides excellent conditions for the processing, incubation and examination of samples without exposure to atmospheric oxygen, and is incredibly gas efficient. It can accommodate 240 x 90mm Petri dishes whilst retaining a generous working area. It will actually hold up to 400 plates for emergency anaerobic incubation.

Managing Director, Paul Walton, commented, “The A20 is the perfect first step-up from using anaerobic jars to using a workstation. It has the same precise control of parameters as our larger workstations, ensuring the very best anaerobic conditions are maintained. Users can check their plates as often as they like and perform tasks inside the workstation without risk to samples.”

This workstation is equipped with two oval, multi-functional glove ports that act as mini airlocks, each capable of transferring 10 x 90mm Petri dishes as a user inserts their arms. A side loading letterbox entry system is also available, providing a straightforward way to quickly introduce individual samples into the workstation. The A20 is fitted with a touch screen providing the user with an intuitive interface for easy control and operation of the workstation.

This workstation is the up-to-date replacement for the Whitley DG250 Workstation, which has been extremely popular with customers for many years. This new model provides modern features such as the full colour touchscreen, remote access, data download (for traceability) and the opportunity to have Anaerobic and Catalyst Conditions Monitoring.

Benefits of this workstation include:

  • Very compact footprint – takes up very little bench space but has the same precise control of parameters as our larger workstations.
  • Low gas consumption – the A20 runs from two gasses (anaerobic mixed gas and nitrogen) for economic running costs.
  • Cost comparisons undertaken by DWS show that it is significantly cheaper to operate a Whitley Workstation than it is to use jars.
