A versatile base for the RC-40 Series chambers, as well as many popular 35 mm glass bottom dishes.
- Quick exchange of Series 40 chamber or 35 mm glass bottom dish
- Adapters available for Willco Wells, Corning, and Falcon dishes
- Open design for easy access to chamber or dish
- Compatible with Series 20 microscope stage adapters
- Removable perfulsion and suction tube holders
- Resisteive heating elements for temperature control
- Magnetic stainless stell shelf allows use of multiple magnetic holders
This platform is at home on both upright and inverted microscopes and includes resistive heating elements. The base has a 25 mm diameter aperture. Magnetic stainless steel shelves along the perimeter of the QE-1 permits the use of Warner's MCK-1 Magnetic Clamp Kit, which includes a variety of holding tools.
Removable perfusion and suction tubes allow perfusion in any of the Series 40 imaging chambers or compatible 35 mm dishes. Adapter rings for Corning, Falcon and Willco 35 mm dishes are supplied to ensure a close fit in the QE-1 platform.
Suction and perfusion tubes also feature set-screw locks for the horizontal location, and adjustable presets on the vertical for setting the bath height. These adjustments permit easy and exact positioning and repositioning of the suction and perfusion tubes. A redesigned suction tube eliminates tidal action and fluid flutter, making aspiration very quiet.
Adapter rings for Corning, MatTek, Nunc, Wilco, and WPI 35 mm dishes are supplied to ensure a close fit in the QE-1. Stage adapters are available for all major microscopes. Custom or modified stage adapters are also available; call our support department for details.
