Abstract

This gas bubbling device is used to saturate a liquid biological sample, e.g., blood, plasma, serum and the like, with a particular gas, e.g., oxygen or carbon dioxide. During saturation of the sample, a great deal of foaming generally occurs. This device depresses this foaming action. As gas 1 is bubbled into the sample, foaming occurs. This foam is forced up into an outer column 2 of the bubbler by the bubbling action. The foam is met by a second gas stream 3 which forces it through holes 4 in the column 2. As the foam is forced through holes 4, it dissipates to form a liquid which travels down the outer walls of the column back into the biological sample.
