ID Rocker Studio
Rocking and Instrumented T-Flasks in Standalone Incubator
Elevate static tissue flask cultures with agitation and real-time, non-invasive monitoring of pH and dissolved oxygen (DO). Static T-flask cultures are mostly in hypoxic conditions even when there is sufficient oxygen in the gas phase (Randers-Eichhorn et al., 1996). Gentle agitation can provide a less oxygen-limited environment resulting in better cell outcomes compared to static culture conditions.
While some cells thrive in hypoxic conditions and many adapt to hypoxia, real-time, non-invasive monitoring of pH and dissolved oxygen (DO) in T-flask cultures in a controlled environment with agitation can provide invaluable insights for your experimental design and research objectives.

How do I incorporate optical sensors in my T-flasks?
The ID • Rocker Studio provides the right environment for instrumented T-flask cultures.
- ID • Sensor pH and ID • Sensor DO are securely attached to the T-flasks.
- Four ID • Readers are embedded into the Enviro-Genie platform. T-flasks with ID • Sensors are placed on top of ID • Readers and secured on the rocking platform.
- ID • Data Hub software loaded onto your laptop collects pH and DO data through the ID • Converter for each of the shake flasks.
