(RC-20, RC-20H) Small Volume Closed Bath Imaging Chambers

Product Summary

Polycarbonate chambers featuring fast solution exchange and linear solution flow.

 

  • Closed bath chamber design
  • Our smallest volume chambers
  • Ideal for fluorescent, calcium, and time-lapse imaging studies

The RC-20 and RC-20H are very small volume imaging chambers featuring fast solution exchange and short working distance. The smaller and narrower RC-20 insures linear solution flow and fast exchange while the RC-20H features a larger viewing area. An access port (Hamilton syringe compatible)* at the bath input may be used to inject substances into the solution flow or to remove gas bubbles.

Two 15 mm round coverslips enclose the bath. The distance between the top and bottom coverslips is 1 mm. The top coverslip is secured into place with a retainer ring.

Studies involving physiological bicarbonate buffers can be performed with these chambers with no gas loss at the chamber interface. In addition the closed design allows the use of permeable supports. With laminar flow, minimal distortion of the sample will occur during perfusion.

RC-20 and RC-20H chambers require a platform (PM-5PH-5 or P-5) and Series 20 stage adapter to complete the assembly for mounting onto a microscope.
