Hypoxia model for cultured cells

There are special cell-culture flasks you can purchase that enable you to
create an hypoxic enviroment much more easily than gassing your entire
incubator - this also means you can still grow cells in non-hypoxic
conditions in the same incubator. I'm afraid I cannot remember who sold
these flasks since I wasn't directly involved in the project myself, but
they were being used by one of Dr. Baker's groups in the Department of
Obstetrics & Gynaecology, Nottingham City Hospital, UK. Hope that is of some
