Specialized Tools for Electrophysiology and Cell Biology Research

(RC-40HP) High Profile Open Bath Chamber

Product Summary

Designed for multiple successive experiments requiring the fast exchange of #1 or #1.5 round coverslips.

 

  • Dual O-ring seal system enables quick coverslip exchange that's ideal for rapid screening assays
  • Open bath design provides excellent access for electrodes and optical objectives to either attached cells or tissue slices
  • Anodized aluminum base insures good heat transfer

The Series 40 family of chambers are designed for research involving multiple experimental trials requiring the rapid exchange of round coverslips. The chamber consists of two parts; a polycarbonate top and a 40 mm diameter aluminum base. O-rings are used to seal the coverslip to the polycarbonate chamber and to hold the chamber securely in the aluminum base. Open bath models are designed for electrophysiological recording and/or optical imaging, and are used in applications including patch clamp, Oocyte clamp, and physiological measurements on cell cultures and tissue preparations.

The innovative design of these chambers uses O-rings to seal the coverslip to the polycarbonate chamber, so little or no silicone grease is needed, and mechanical fasteners are not required for coverslip mounting. The RC-40HP high profile open bath chamber uses a 25 mm coverslip to form the chamber bottom. The 6.5 mm tapered sides provide clearance for pipettes, injectors, etc. and allows for a greater bath depth than the RC-40LP.

Series 40 chambers are designed to be compatible with Warner's QE-1 Quick Exchange Platform and DH-35iL and DH-40iL culture dish incubators which are compatible with Warner Series 20 microscope stage adapters.

A temperature controller TC-344C or TC-324C that connects to the heated platform QE-1 or the microincubators DH-35iL and DH-40iLcan be added to set and maintain a certain temperature.

Perfusion can be achieved by adding a VCS Perfusion System, the DVW vacuum system takes care of the waste.

The RC-40HP is supplied with one package of 25 mm diameter, #1.5 coverslips.
