Ussing chambers, U9926

These self-contained Ussing Chambers come in single-channel and dual-channel models and offer many advantages over the classic design. Both make use of inserts to secure and position the tissue or culture cup within the chamber body.

Chamber bodies (single- and dual-chamber models) consist of two chamber-halves, which clamp around the inserts. Each chamber-half has four ports that enter into its respective bath compartment: a voltage electrode port, a current electrode port, an air/gas port, and a solution drain port. Solution warming is provided by pumping heated water through each chamber-half and there are no delicate glass heat exchangers to be broken. The dual-chamber has the additional feature of including four needle valves for adjusting the air/gas mixture into each individual chamber-half. Inserts can be easily exchanged between experiments. Solutions are removed from the chambers through the drain valves and the halves unclamped from each other. The insert is then simply replaced. Inserts are available to support a variety of tissue sizes and culture cups.

Included with all Ussing Chambers:

  • Ussing Electrode Set
  • Ussing electrode bridge fitting kit
  • Tubing Kit (Hose & Luer fittings) for Ussing Chambers

Accessories purchased separately:

  • Culture Cups (with Snapwell, Transwell or Millicell Insert)
  • Tissue Inserts (with O-Ring, Slotted or Pin Insert)
  • O-rings for Ussing Chambers
  • Bridge Fitting Adapters for Ussing Chambers

For use with:

  • Single or Dual Channel Epithelial Voltage Clamp Systems
