Oocyte Perfusion Chamber

  • Model: MS-OPC

Description

The Oocyte Perfusion Chamber (MS-OPC) from ALA allows the user to constantly replace the bottom of the dish while leaving the rest of the dish intact. This way, cells can be cultured on coverglass and then be incorporated into the chamber at the time of the experiment. The chamber itself does not need to occupy the incubator.

The MS-OPC is compatible with 35mm Petri dishes, the Microscope Stage Mounting Plate (MS-Stage) and the Heating and Cooling Microincubation Stage (HCMIS).

Details

The Oocyte Perfusion Chamber (MS-OPC) uses the securing ring design like the other MS Chambers from ALA. The MS-OPC is made from Delrin®, an opaque polycarbonate plastic that is somewhat more hydrophobic than Lexan®and more optically friendly.This chamber has a funnel shaped interior where the oocyte sits snugly so that two electrode voltage clamp recording can be carried out. It also has a perfusion port where the perfusate bathes the oocyte from the bottom of the funnel upwards. This ensures complete oocyte bathing of the perfusate. The chamber emulates 35mm Petri dishes in size and uses 25mm round #1 coverglass.
