Systems offer compatibility with all microscopy techniques. New FCS3 system is specifically optimized for use with upright microscopes. Both consist of controller, chamber, microaqueduct slides and stage adapter.

  • Parallel-plate flow cell provides uniform temperature control, user-definable flow cavity; works with all illumination modes
  • Easily modified for time-lapse micro-observation of living cells; especially suited for stopped-flowthrough high-rate flow procedures requiring rapid media exchange and where discrete control of cell surface shear is adjustable
  • Controls cell temperature uniformly across entire field, from ambient to 50°C ±0.1°C; bicarbonate or organic buffers can be used in chamber
  • Separate channels for microaqueduct slide and chamber frame
  • Backlit LCD, user calibration, and auto reset
  • Patented microaqueduct slide ensures proper Koehler illumination with high-numeric-aperture optics in transmitted and reflected modes
  • Cover slip is 40mm dia. × 0.16–0.19mm thick; slide is 75 O.D. × 13mmH (3 × 1/2 in.)
  • Imaging aperture: 22mm
  • Volume (min./max.): 6.6/706mm3; maximum volume exchange rate: 1/sec.
  • Separation between optical surfaces, 50 to 1000μm; minimum fluid aperture, 0.63mm2
