RC-26Z Diamond Bath Oocyte Recording Chamber

Product Summary

The RC-26Z, based on the the popular RC-26, is specifically designed to accommodate studies with xenopus oocytes.

  • Designed for TEV oocyte recording
  • Diamond shaped bath provides laminar solution flow
  • Large optical imaging area
  • Can be used with either upright or inverted microscopes
  • Tissue slice anchors available

The RC-26Z is a polycarbonate chamber, similar in design to the RC-26, having two additional features specific for two-electrode oocyte recording: namely, the dam height in the suction well is increased to 2.5 mm to provide an adequate solution level in the bath, and a second agar bridge well has been added to accommodate a bath clamp electrode.

The RC-26Z can also accommodate larger tissue slices and preparations, and permits excellent access for electrodes. The working volume is 170 µl/mm. The chamber floor consists of a 22 x 50 mm coverslip.

The chamber is equipped with a stainless steel suction tube (1.67 mm OD) together with a suction tube clamp. This insures the adjustable suction tube will not move once the height is set by the user.

The RC-26Z chamber requires a platform (PM-1PH-1 or P-1) and Series 20 stage adapter to complete the assembly for mounting onto a microscope.

Each RC-26Z is supplied with a package of #1 thickness glass coverslips (CS-22/50, 22x50 mm, 50/pkg) and 10 ft of PE-160 tubing.
