Cobalt (II) ions and nanoparticles induce macrophage retention by ROS-mediated down-regulation

Adverse tissue responses to metal wear and corrosion products from CoCr alloy implants remain a great challenge to surgeons and patients. Macrophages are the key regulators of these adverse responses to the ions and debris generated.

"We purchased the COY vinyl anaerobic glove box, as we needed a reliable solution for work with oxygen-sensitive proteins and chemicals (e.g. glutathione, dyes for detecting reactive oxygen species). I decided for COY, as I have a good experience with COY glove boxes since my study time in the 1990s.We are actually retiring the old one, which served for almost 20 years.

In future, we might want to add an extra dehumidification, especially if we are to work with more liquids, possibly a small refrigerator to help us while working with sensitive proteins - just like the one they have in Konstanz."
