(BSC-PC) Prechamber

Product Summary

The BSC-PC chamber allows multiple brain slices to be stored in vitro for several hours while maintaining excellent viability prior to study using either the BSC-HT or BSC-ZT.

 

  • 10 to 12 brain slices can be stored in vitro
  • 95% O2 /5% CO2 mixture bubbled through normal saline
  • Cyclic flow of oxygen enriched perfusate
  • Continuous permeation of stored slices
  • Slices remain viable for hours
  • Includes insert

The Pre-chamber (BSC-PC) chamber allows up to 12 brain slices to be safely stored in vitro while maintaining excellent slice viability.

A mixture of 95% O2 /5% CO2 is bubbled through physiological saline within the chamber. This initiates a circular flow of oxygen enriched saline which continuously permeates the slices. Slices can remain viable for hours while awaiting transfer to an examining chamber. Gas flow pressure should not exceed 5 p.s.i.

Insert is included.
