  • With the capital saved through our program, labs are better able to reinvest in their core business and operations (staffing, inventory, marketing/sales, etc.)

*Please consult your tax advisor to determine the full tax implications of leasing equipment.

Anaerobic chambers, or anaerobic glove boxes, are used whenever there is an experiment requiring the handling of oxygen-sensitive materials.

An enormous range of labs use them, but companies researching biofuels, studying microbiology, creating new drugs, and identifying infectious diseases all find these machines invaluable. 

By keeping out the oxygen that could compromise the experiments, the chamber allows researchers to culture, process, and examine samples without issue. Due to their self-contained nature, these units also do an excellent job controlling vexing experimental variables such as temperature, humidity, and O₂ and CO₂ levels.

Gloved, Gloveless, & Other Options

Anaerobic glove boxes have a number of different styles, specifications, and layouts. Some of the most common variants are:

Rigid Gloved

This style of unit is extremely common due to both its economical pricing and safety features. This style often comes with an upgradable polycarbonate viewing screen that can be replaced with tempered glass. This is generally done for labs that need a more chemical resistant unit for their experiments. The ability to upgrade doesn’t necessarily stop there either, as these units can be upgraded to a gloveless style with just a few modifications.


Flexible Vinyl

By far the most common style, the biggest selling point of this setup is the ability for researchers to reach deeper and higher up within the unit. The flexible nature of the unit, the clear vinyl, and the expanded glove ports offer an ergonomically superior user experience compared to the rigid glove box. Unsurprisingly, the drawback for this style is that it is not safe to perform experiments with corrosive or other dangerous chemicals.

The gloveless option varies from the two before it due to the most obvious difference, the lack of gloves. Using a system of sleeve vacuums and a special cuff system, the gloveless option allows the researchers to use their arms unimpeded inside the box, improving manual dexterity and the ability to feel textural changes.


Add-Ons & Upgrades

Regardless of which style is chosen, there are a number of upgrades and optional features that can benefit your lab. Some of the options include: oxygen and hydrogen monitors, touch screen interfaces, transfer airlocks, real-time feedback systems, and even separate incubators. Regardless of what your lab needs in this area, Excedr can help you get the unit with all the features you desire.

While the idea behind creating a chamber that made growing anaerobic samples belongs to Rolf Freter of the University of Michigan, the honor of creating the chamber itself belongs to Dick Coy. Dick Coy was a local engineer who sought to create a device that could match the specifications he had been provided. This was the beginning of the Coy Anaerobic Chamber. 

Over time these units grew and were modified to adapt to growing needs in the industry. These changes have facilitated numerous experiments and massively simplified the process of obtaining anaerobic samples.

We Offer Flexible Vinyl Chamber Leases to Fit Every Need

Operating Lease

This off-balance sheet financing structure provides three options at the end of the term. The lessee has the option to return the equipment to the lessor, renew at a discounted rate, or purchase the instrument for the fair market value. Monthly payments are also 100% tax deductible which yields additional monetary savings.


If you recently bought equipment, Excedr can offer you cash for your device and convert your purchase into a long-term rental. This is called a sale-leaseback. If you’ve paid for equipment within the last ninety days, we can help you recoup your investment and allow you to make low monthly payments. This also frees up money in your budget rather than tying it down to a fixed asset.
