(RC-27D, RC-27LD) Ultra-quiet Imaging Chambers for Slice Studies

Product Summary

The RC-27D and RC-27LD are designed for applications requiring ultra quiet solution delivery.

  • Designed for tissue slice studies
  • RC-27LD includes a slice support
  • Sloped input eliminates vibration associated with solution delivery
  • Alows multiplexed solution exchange without switching artifacts

The large imaging field in the RC-27D and RC-27LD allows for maximal observation of biological specimens with the addition of a sloped input. The advantages of the sloped inflow channel includes smooth and "ultra-quiet" solution delivery.

The sloped input allows I-V type infusion lines to deliver drops at a fixed rate without the transfer of noise to the specimen field. In addition, multiplexed solution delivery is now possible without the potential for solution switching artifacts. This technology provides the capability of ultra-quiet solution exchange without transferring noise to either the system or to the image.

Ultra-quiet solution delivery when measuring from tissue slices is provided by the inclusion of a slice support in the RC-27LD chamber. Slices are supported 0.5 mm above the chamber floor. Support threads are made of Lycra and thread spacing 0.5 mm.

 

The RC-27D requires a PM-7 platform while the RC-27LD requires a PM-7D platform. The increased depth of the PM-7D platform permits use of the associated RC-27LD slice support. Both platforms are compatible our Series 20 stage adapters which complete the assembly for mounting onto a microscope.

Both chambers are supplied with a MAG-2 magnetic clamp for suction tubes, a magnetic perfusion tube holder, a package of #2 thickness glass coverslips (CS-24/60), 40/pkg, and 10 feet of PE-160 polyethylene tubing. The RC-27LD also includes a slice support. Slice anchors are sold separately.
