The Perfusion Bilayer Chamber is designed to simplify the exchange of solutions in both the cup and chamber. This new model incorporates unique features which can improve your perfusion success rate.
New Design The simple design of the BCH-P has two features not found in our classic cup and chamber. First, perfusion ports have been permanently milled into both the chamber and cup body for attachment of perfusion lines. The input port is routed to the bottom of the cup (or chamber) while the output port collects solution from the top of the cup (or chamber).
A second improvement is the incorporation of an aspiration shelf in both the cup and chamber. This shelf provides two advantages. First, the aspiration line can remain attached to the chamber without introducing noise artifacts into the bath. Second, the fixed height of the shelf, coupled with rapid aspiration of overflow solutions, helps maintain the working volume.
Connection between your PE perfusion lines and the perfusion ports is conveniently made via standard 200 µl pipette tips. Alternatively, PE-90 tubing can be attached directly to the cup (or chamber) to minimize dead volume.
The chamber is machined from black Delrin and has a working volume of 1 ml. Cups are available in either white Delrin or polystyrene and also have a working volume of 1 ml.
