The RC-49MFSH is a chamber/platform assembly featuring a hybrid diamond/slotted bath shaped to promote laminar solution flow with field stimulation. The field stimulation electrodes are made from platinum, are terminated in 1 mm gold pins on both ends, and are easily replaced.
The chamber's natural, low volume laminar flow allows rapid exchange of solution facilitating drug application studies. O-rings on the chamber base form a quick seal on a standard 18 mm, #1.5 thickness coverslip.
Electric field stimulation is achieved by use of an optional STG Series or
SIU-102 stimulators, and perfusion control can be achieved by adding a VC-8 or VC-6 perfusion system. The
DVW vacuum system can take care of the waste.
The RC-49MFSH includes a package of #1.5 thickness coverslips (CS-18R15), 10 feet of PE-160 polyethylene tubing, and spare o-rings.
