EasyMount Multichannel Ussing Chambers
The EasyMount chamber systems are ideal for studies requiring electrophysiological measurement of transmembrane resistance. While visually similar to the NaviCyte Vertical chambers, EasyMount chambers are different in that they use inserts to position and secure tissues or culture cups within the chamber body.
- Not available separately - included as part of the complete systems
- 2, 4, 6, and 8 chamber systems available
- Tissue and cell culture inserts for all applications
- Built-in temperature control block
- Needle valve gas flow control manifold
- Ag/AgCl voltage and current electrodes
- Series connection for multiple systems

Please see Full Description for complete information about EasyMount Multichannel Ussing Chambers.
The EasyMount chamber systems consist of 2 to 8 vertical Ussing chambers, a heater block/support stand, needle valves for adjustment of gas flow (for oxygenation and gas lift stirring), and Ag/AgCl voltage/current electrodes for measuring transepithelial voltage and for passing current. Tissue specific inserts are ordered separately.
All EasyMount chambers (P2300 and P2400,) use the same stands and electrodes. Stands are available to support 2, 4, 6, or 8 chambers and can be readily ganged to allow for higher count applications. Stands have an incorporated heater block that warms all chambers to the same temperature. A needle valve assembly (one set per chamber) is mounted on the rear of the heater block for regulation of the gas flow.
EasyMount chambers are a two piece assembly using an insert to secure and position tissues or culture cups. Tissues are placed in the chamber by loosening a thumbscrew, sliding the tissue holding insert into the space between the chamber halves, and retightening the thumbscrew. Chambers do not need to be removed from the heater block, nor are the electrodes disturbed, when placing an insert. This easy and rapid replacement process makes the EasyMount system an excellent choice for high-throughput applications.
Chambers are available in two styles; the P2300 is the standard chamber and accommodates a large variety of inserts and the P2400 is designed for low-volume applications. The P2300 has chamber caps available for sealing the chamber when radioligands or toxic chemicals are used.
The P2300 Series inserts are available to accommodate Snapwell, Millicell, Nunc, and Transwell culture cups. Inserts are also available with pins or o-rings in both oblong and round formats.
P2400 Series inserts do not support culture cups but are available with pins or o-rings in both oblong and round formats.
Electrodes and Accessories
Electrodes are available in sets comprised of two sintered Ag/AgCl pellet electrodes for voltage sensing (black), two Ag wire electrodes for current passing (white), and eight electrodes tips. The number of sets provided is dependent on the system purchased, however, one electrode set is required for each chamber.
Replacement current and voltage electrodes are available, as are electrode tips. Additional accessories include electrode lead sets and chamber filling needles.
