Base Unit (BSC-BU)

Base Unit (BSC-BU)

The function of the BSC-BU Base Unit is to warm the superfusing solution in systems using either the Zbicz or Haas tops to study brain/tissue slices.

  • Maintains brain slices for 10 hours or more on the bench-top
  • Modular design accommodates submersible or interface chambers
  • 20 years of use in leading labs
  • Sensitive recordings without electrical interference

The function of the Base Unit is to warm the superfusing solution in systems using either the Zbicz or Haas tops to study brain/tissue slices.

  • Maintains brain slices for 10 hours or more on the bench-top

  • Models available for Warner or Med Systems temperature controllers

The Base Units (BSC-BUW or BSC-BU) consist of a double walled cylinder which is usually filled with distilled water and encloses a nichrome heating element. The cavity also contains two separate sets of PVC tubing which can transport one or two superfusing solutions to the slice chamber. The base unit also holds an aerator used to humidify the Haas Top .

The base unit is mounted on legs which suspend the heating cylinder. This prevents artifacts due to thermal expansion of the heating cylinder from moving the top unit and slice during temperature changes. The base unit is specifically designed to accept both the BSC-HT and the BSC-ZT top units; this makes for economy and versatility.
