Low Profile Open Diamond Bath Imaging Chamber (RC-26GLP)
Primarily designed for studies of cell cultured coverslips.
- Applications include patch clamp, intracellular/extracellular recordings, and imaging
- Extra-low profile facilitates electrode access
- Diamond shaped bath provides laminar solution flow
- Broad optical imaging area
- Can be used with either upright or inverted microscopes

The RC-26GLP is a low profile version of the RC-26G recording chamber. The sides of this chamber have been milled to a height of only 2 mm and the lower profile provides extra clearance for upright microscopes, water immersion objectives, and permits good electrode access to the chamber bath.
The chamber floor is comprised of a 22 x 40 mm coverslip. The working volume is 234 µl per 1.0 mm of solution height. The chamber is equipped with a stainless steel suction tube together with clamp. The clamp insures the adjustable aspirator tube will not move once the height is set by the user.
Perfusion can be achieved by adding a VC-8 or VC-6 perfusion system, the DVW vacuum system takes care of the waste.
Each RC-26GLP chamber is supplied with a package of CS-22/40 glass coverslips (#1 thickness, 22 x 40 mm, 100/pkg) and 10 ft of PE-160 tubing.
