Ussing/Diffusion chambers for the study of substance transport across cultured cell monolayers or excised epithelial tissue. For cultured monolayers, these chambers use the Snapwell device - a 2-piece Transwell with 12 mm diameter x 0.4 um pore membrane mounted in a detachable ring. Excised tissue of various sizes can be clamped in a choice of chambers.
Vertical chambers allow the tissue to be bathed on both sides with no pressure difference, while transport and electrophysiological parameters are measured. Horizontal chambers allow the upper surface of the tissue to be exposed to gases or liquids while the lower surface is perfused.
NaviCyte Vertical Chamber
A range 14 different Ussing chambers which may be used individually, or mounted in the 6-position gas manifold / heating block system shown below.
6 Vertical Chamber System
The 6 Vertical Chamber System consists of 6 chambers, a 12-channel gas manifold and a heating block.
NaviCyte Horizontal Chambers allow the upper surface of the tissue to be exposed to gases with the open top, or perfused with solution using the closed top.
