Narrow Rectangular Baths (RC-27N)
The RC-27N has a narrower bath and smaller volume than the RC-27.
- Rectangular, open-bath chamber
- Narrow bath
- Accommodates tissue or brain slice specimens
- Applications include patch clamp, and physiological measurements on cultured cells and tissue preparations
- Slice anchors available with three thread spacing sizes
The RC-27N recording chamber is a modified version of the RC-27 with a narrower bath and smaller volume. The narrow bath can stabilize solution flow at high flow rates and the smaller volume improves exchange times.
The specimen area is 28 x 8 mm. The height of the bath area side walls are 2 mm, and the sides of the chamber slope away from the bath at an angle of 15° from the horizontal. The low profile design and inclined surfaces permit good electrode access to the specimen area.
The RC-27N chamber requires a platform (PM-6, PH-6, or P-6) and stage adapter to complete the assembly for mounting onto a microscope. The chamber body is manufactured from polycarbonate and the chamber floor is formed from a 24 x 50 mm coverslip.
Perfusion can be achieved by adding a VC-8 or VC-6 perfusion system, the DVW vacuum system takes care of the waste.
Each chamber is supplied with a package of #1 thickness glass coverslips (CS-24/50, 24 x 50 mm, pkg. of 50) and 10 ft of PE-160 polyethylene tubing.
