The Slice Holders (SH) are
also referred to as 'harps' and 'slice anchors' and used to hold down slices in
various perfusion chambers to allow stable electrophysiology recordings from
the preparation. The 316 stainless steel arms support very fine nylon threads,
approx 20 to 25um in diameter across the open span. The arms are 800 um in
thickness. Nine or more threads are stretched across the arms, excess threads
may be cut as desired. There are three sizes suitable for chambers with
diameters close to 13, 18 or 20 mm and the Slice Holders identified as SH13, SH18 or
SH20 for ordering purposes.
The diagram shows three
different round chamber openings: 13, 18 and 20 mm in diameter. The appropriate
Slice Holders are identified as SH13, SH18 and SH20.
