• Spill sensor - an auto shut off probe for use with inverted microscopes
• Complete systems with choice of 3 valve types:
- Pinch valves
- PTFE valves
- Miniature Lee saline valves
• Manual or computer control
• Low noise
• Low self-heating design
Warner perfusion valve control systems are uncomplicated and easy to operate.
The VC-8 Valve Controller is configured to control up to 8 valves. Each valve is individually accessed by either a manual switch, an external analog signal, or an external TTL signal. A spill sensor probe is included for detecting an overflow condition in your perfusion chambers and will shut off all valves thereby protecting your valuable microscope optics. An event-marker pulse, generated each time a valve is switched on, is provided for output to tape or chart recorders.
Systems include all components necessary to get set up and running in very little time. Pinch valve and PTFE valve systems include the VC-8 Controller, 8 valves, a valve bracket with 8 ft. cable and MP-8 Series Manifold. Pinch valve systems are supplied with C-Flex™ valve tubing. Included with the Pinch and PTFE Valve Systems are eight 60 cc reservoirs, a reservoir holder and support stand, stopcocks and tubing connectors. Pinch valve systems are also supplied with 50 ft. of Tygon™ tubing. Systems with a PTFE valve include 25 ft. of PTFE tubing.
The VC-8M Mini-Valve Perfusion Control System includes the VC-8 Controller, 8 valves, a valve manifold with 8 ft. cable and an ML-8 Series Manifold. Also included are eight 10 cc reservoirs, a reservoir holder, ring stand, stopcocks, tubing connectors and 100 ft. of PE-50 tubing.
VC-8P Pinch Valve Systems
Pinch valves are the simplest to maintain as the solution never comes in contact with the valve and tubings are easily changed. Valves are dual acting (3-way) with both normally open and closed sides. Y connectors at the valve inputs permit solution flow to waste with the valves off.
VC-8T PTFE Valve Systems
PTFE valves are available for applications where resistance to chemicals is a concern. The valves are 2-way (either on or off).
VC-8M Mini-Valve Systems
The VC-8M is designed for slow flow perfusion systems where smaller diameter tubing is used. Eight valves mount directly to a compact Delrin manifold. The 3-way valves allow for solutions to flow to waste if desired. The VC-8M system is ideally suited for use with the
SF-77B Perfusion Stepper Systems.
