Anoxomat® III

The Anoxomat® III uses the evacuation and replacement method of McIntosh & Fildes to create anaerobic, microaerophilic, or custom environments, such as capnophilic. This method is the most efficient means of bacterial cultivation. Anoxomat’s easy operation and its built-in quality assurance program guarantees reliable results. The system is unique as it creates repeatable environmental conditions for the clinical, industrial, food safety, pharmaceutical, and biotechnology microbiology laboratories.

With laboratories eager to accurately identify bacteria, reduce costs, and operate in limited workspace, the Anoxomat is a substitute to conventional methods like anaerobic gas chambers and gas generating sachet systems. These methods can be resource-intensive, error-prone, and cumbersome to handle. The Anoxomat, with its line of high-quality anaerobic jars, allows laboratories to improve workflow, increase productivity — and save on operational costs.

The system’s capacity can be updated and expanded at any time — according to your laboratory’s needs.



Exact, repeatable environmental conditions with gas mixtures within desired values.


Low gas consumption, with substantial operational savings over gas generating sachet systems and chambers, means a lower cost of ownership.


Automatic quality assurance program runs before each recipe to detect and ensure appropriate catalyst activity, therefore eliminating guesswork and frustration.


Easily trace and track samples for quality control with software options. Optional barcode scanner and printer simplify patient information input.


Allows users to take plates in and out of jars and return to the anaerobic environment in minutes—instead of hours.


Automatic, one-button operation. Process jars while you work, increasing overall laboratory efficiency.


Creates anaerobic, microaerophilic, or custom environments, such as capnophilic, all with one instrument. It also offers users the ability to program recipes with the optional “User Generating Recipes” function.
