Model BSC-BU (Base Unit) Tissure Slice Chamber

This unique and versatile Brain/Tissue Slice Chamber System offers the investigator two in vitro methods of studying a thin slice of
tissue, which is bathed by perfusates of interest. The BSC-HT (Haas Top) is an interface-type chamber in which one cut surface of the slice is wetted by a perfusing solution while the other surface is kept moist by a humidified gas mixture. The BSC-ZT (Zbicz Top) is a chamber in which solutions flow transversely to fully submerged slices. Each top unit allows for rapid changeover of fluids which are being investigated and both provide for excellent access to the slices for electrophysiological recording or other observations.

Full Description Back to Top

• Maintains brain slices for 10 hours or more on the bench-top
• Modular design accommodates submersible or interface chambers
• 20 years of use in leading labs
• Sensitive recordings without electrical interference

The function of the BSC-BU Base Unit (catalog number 65-0073) is to warm the superfusing solution. The BSC-BU consists of a double walled cylinder which is usually filled with distilled water and encloses a nichrome heating element. The cavity also contains two separate sets of PVC tubing which can transport one or two superfusing solutions to the slice chamber. The base unit also holds an aerator used to humidify vapor when the Haas Top is employed.
The BSC-BU is mounted on legs which suspend the heating cylinder. This prevents the thermal expansion of the heating cylinder from moving the top unit and slice during temperature changes. The BSC-BU is specifically designed to accept both the BSC-HT and the BSC-ZT top units; this makes for economy and versatility.
