Very small bath volume facilitates very fast solution exchange
The RC-24N chamber design is taken from the RC-24 and improves the flow characteristics by providing a linear path. The bath volume in this model is among the smallest of the open style chambers. This enables very fast solution exchange for a variety of applications, including patch clamp and electrophysiology studies. The small bath volume is especially useful when using drugs in small quantities.
An agar bridge well for reference electrodes is provided, as is an aspiration well. The aspiration well is equipped with a stainless steel aspiration tube (1.67 mm OD) together with a tube clamp. The clamp insures that the adjustable suction tube will not move once the height is set by the user. The floor of this chamber is formed from a 22 mm x 40 mm rectangular coverslip.
