The BSC1 chamber design is similar to the original "Oslo chamber" (Langmoen & Andersen 1981) with later modifications (Dhanjal & Sears 1980, Alger et al, 1984) to allow both interface and submerged methods of slice maintenance.
* "Submerged" and "Interface" methods of slice maintenance with same chamber
This chamber allows adaptation to either method of slice maintenance simply by altering the fluid level by means of a screw adjustment device on the chamber.
* Slices supported on removable insert adaptable to your requirements
A standard insert having a nylon net is supplied with the chamber for submerged and interface methods. This insert can be modified or custom-made to accommodate other preparations e.g. adult spinal cord (Dhanjal & Sears 1980, Alger et al, 1984) and Cerebellar slices (Crepel et al 1981).
* Optional "Sloped Insert" allows perfusion of slices with a small dead-space
* Proportional Temperature Controller (PTC03) with low noise performance
