The MS-5 chamber has
been designed for use on microscope stages to view glass cover slips containing
cultured cells. Cover slips smaller than 25mm with cell cultures are placed
directly on top of a fixed glass cover slip glass at the base of the MS5.
The chamber can be used with inverted microscope stages but the glass
cover slip at the base of MS5 will add 200um to the existing cultured
cover slip thickness. The glass-to-glass adhesion between the cover slips
keeps the sample stable for viewing under submerged conditions. Incubating
media flows across the cultured cells with the possibility of temperature
control with an in-line perfusion solution heater MH02 available separately.
The particular feature of this chamber is the raised glass cover slip
that allows the cover slip containing cultured preparations to be slipped
off side-ways and returned to the incubator if required. Adaptor plates
are available for various microscope stages.
Approx 2 ml capacity flow through microscope stage chamber
Unique design for supporting cover slips from incubated preparations
cover slip base
Easy chamber removal for cleaning
In-line perfusion solution temperature control unit available
Perfusion solution enters from one side via a stainless steel tube and
exits through an L shaped well in which a movable tube attached
to a pump / suction line adjusts the fluid level. Solutions can be pre-warmed
before entering the chamber with our Mini Heating Module MH02.
Perfusion solution forms a pool around the preparation whilst being refreshed
by virtue of the inlet and exit ports.
