Title:
A CO2 controller enabling cell culture research inside an automated incubator onboard the ISS 
Abstract:
The majority of Earth-based mammalian tissue and cell culture research is conducted in CO2 incubators where both the air temperature and carbon dioxide concentration are precisely controlled to ensure optimal and reproducible cell growth. CO2 serves the primary function of regulating culture pH through the bicarbonate buffering system employed by blood plasma and most culture media. This paper describes the design and performance of a CO2-control system that enables cell culture research onboard...    »
