Include tissue chambers, pre-heating reservoir coils, gas diffusers, tissue holders, micropositioners, a water pump and thermostat controller (not shown). Please note that isometric and isotonic force transducers are not included but are available for purchase for use with these organ baths.
A variety of tissue chamber volumes are available (5, 10, 25 and 50 mL). Tissue chambers and reservoir coils are located inside a thick perspex-walled water bath to maintain a constant temperature. With all components contained within the bath this ensures that the temperature within the tissue chambers does not fluctuate when refilling. Each reservoir coil has a capacity of approximately 60 mL – enough for even the largest tissue chamber.
The solid design, combined with the mass of the water bath minimizes vibration. Each tissue chamber has an adjustable gas diffuser for oxygenation and push buttons on the front of the unit control the filling and emptying of the tissue chambers via electrovalves. Electrovalves can be operated manually or by using the PowerLab digital outputs.
Note that multiple chamber Panlab Organ Bath Systems are also available, which include: PowerLab systems, Bridge Amps, organ baths, thermostat controller and isometric force transducers.
