||The Scholzen Microshuttle is absolutely new on the market. For
the first time ever, it is now possible - by using a gas mixture
- to transport or mail sensitive cultures under completely oxygen-free
conditions, without using any kind of gel. This is a patent-protected
process. Immediately after taking the test material, it can be
inserted into the Scholzen Microshuttle in a very simple way.
In the process of closing the shuttle a valve releases automatically
the internal anaerobic gas cartridge. The interior is filled with
gas, and within a few minutes the Microshuttle MS 220 is completely
anaerob. Cartridges can be refilled, so they can be used again.
For larger volumes of test materials, the Microshuttle model MS
150 can be filled with gas directly from a gas bottle. To maintain
the anaerobic conditions the Microshuttle is equipped with a catalytic
converter. A constant, moderate amount of excess pressure in the
interior prevents dehydration of the test materials. The compact
size of the shuttle makes it possible to send it by mail, in simply
dropping it into the mailbox.
