fcs3 closed Chamber - 1

Attributes • Suitable for no flow through high rate flow procedures where a rapid exchange of media is required with low cell surface shear • Cell temperature can be controlled from ambient to 50 degrees C +/- 0.2 degrees C without the need of an air curtain • Temperature is controlled uniformly across entire field with media equilibrating as it enters the chamber • Closed system so that bicarbonate CO2 or organic buffers can be employed • Compatible with 1/16" tubing for perfusion (C-Flex, Tygon, etc.) • Easily assembled with ordinary skill (no tools required) Standalone temperature controller with an alarm circuit to safeguard your cells • Near laminar flow Uniform temperature, closed, live-cell environmental chamber. FCS3 Closed Chamber for Upright Microscopy Closed System Live Cell Environmental Chamber System for Upright Microscopes The FCS3 provides the user with all of the functionality of the popular FCS2 but redesigned for upright microscopes. What is it? The Focht Chamber System 3 (FCS3) is a live-cell micro-observation system specifically for upright microscopes. It has all of the optical, thermal and fluidic capabilities of its predecessor the FCS2. Therefore, it provides compatibility with all modes of microscopy, uniform temperature control throughout the observation aperture, a near laminar flow that is adjustable to provide the user with the ability to modify the separation of optical surfaces, flow path geometry, and fl

How does it work? Temperature Control The FCS3 was designed to maintain accurate thermal control and allow near laminar flow perfusion. Both of these functions are incorporated into our patented Microaqueduct Slide (see drawing below). The surface of the slide, opposite the specimen side, is coated with an electrically conductive transparent thin film of Indium-Tin Oxide (ITO) and two electrical contacts (busbars). When the FCS3 is completely assembled and placed on the stage adapter, two electrical contacts and a thermal sensor, (not shown in drawing), rest on these busbars. A temperature...
