The RC-27 requires a platform (PM-6, PH-6, or P-6) and stage adapter to complete the assembly for mounting onto a microscope.

A temperature controller TC-344C or TC-324C that connects to the heated platform can be added to set and maintain a certain temperature.

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, 50/pkg) and 10 ft of PE-160 tubing. Available slice anchors sold separately.
