Modeled on the RC-21 Series chambers, RC-21BRFS imaging chamber is designed for field stimulation studies.
Well optimized for studies with cardiac myocytes
Field stimulation chamber
Closed bath design
Small volume with slotted bath
Ideal for fluorescent, calcium and time-lapse imaging studies
The RC-21BRFS is a small volume, closed bath imaging chamber designed for field stimulation studies. It uses a pair of 25 mm round coverslips to form the top and bottom of the chamber, and the total bath volume is 263 µL. Two platinum wire electrodes are attached to the parallel sides of the oval-shaped bath. The connecting wires are 15 cm long and are terminated in 1 mm pins.
An additional stainless steel port at the bath input fits a standard Hamilton microliter syringe*. It may be used to inject substances into the flow path or to remove air bubbles from the sealed chamber. At the bath output, a length of tubing is used as a back pressure control to insure smooth perfusate flow.
