A simple, normobaric hypoxic chamber constructed of easily obtainable parts is described. Important features include small size, low cost, simple construction, and easy maintenance. The chamber accommodates 50 mice and can be used for rats as well. Although designed to provide animals for the in vivo bioassay of erythropoietin, it is also useful for experimental studies requiring the acute induction of hypoxia.
