Narrow Bath Chamber with Field Stimulation (RC-27NE2)

Narrow Bath Chamber with Field Stimulation (RC-27NE2)

This chamber has a narrower bath and smaller volume than the RC-27. It also has embedded electrodes to support studies using field stimulation.

  • Designed for field stimulation studies
  • Rectangular, open-bath chamber
  • Narrow bath
  • Accommodates tissue or brain slice specimens
  • Applications include patch clamp, and physiological measurements on cultured cells

The RC-27NE2 recording chamber is a modified version of the RC-27 with a narrower bath and smaller volume designed for applications requiring electric field stimulation. Laminar solution flow is more stable in this chamber than in the wider RC-27 chamber.

The working specimen area is 28 x 8 mm and there are inclined surfaces on both sides (from 2.0 mm to 3.1 mm height). The low profile design and inclined surfaces permits good electrode access to the specimen area.

The chamber is supplied with a pair of platinum wire electrodes installed along the parallel long sides of the bath. Electrode leads are approximately 16 cm long and terminate with 1 mm diameter pins.

The optional STG or SIU-102 are stimulator designed for use with field stimulation chambers.

The RC-27NE2 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.

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, pkg. of 50) and 10 ft of PE-160 polyethylene tubing.
