The RC-26G chamber has been one of Warner Instruments' most popular recording and imaging chambers. We now offer this classic chamber in a disposable, silicone-based format. The format of this new chamber carries with it all of the features of the classic RC-26G design, including the use of a 22 x 40 mm coverslip for the chamber floor.

A special magnetic platform, the PM-8, is used to clamp the RC-26GS silicone chamber and coverslip together. The clamping action of the PM-8, along with the silicone, makes for a very secure seal between the chamber and coverslip without the use of messy vacuum greases.

The RC-26GS silicone chamber enables excellent access for both water-immersion objectives and for electrodes when used with an upright microscope. The bath volume of the RC-26GS is 234 ul/mm. The large diamond-shaped bath area allows for the insertion and removal of 15 mm round coverslips. Large samples can be directly placed into this chamber.

The RC-26GS silicone chamber and platform requires a 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.

Chambers are packaged in lots of two and are supplied with an ST-3 suction tube, a MAG-2 magnetic clamp (for suction tubes), a pack of #1 thickness glass coverslips (CS-22/40, 22x40 mm, 50/pkg.), and 10 ft of PE-160 tubing.
