Maintaining Cellular Health

To avoid the negative effects of ambient oxygen, researchers must grow cells in precise conditions.  

At sea level, the oxygen concentration is typically 21 percent. However, this condition, referred to as normoxia, is significantly higher than the range of oxygen found in bodily tissues. Normoxia is toxic to cells in a flask, so growing cultures at their ideal oxygen concentration, or physoxia, is important for cellular fitness.
