Cell MicroControls What's new

  • We will be increasing pricing in Europe on 1st April 2015 to compensate for the huge drop in the value of the Euro over the last year.
  • Our improved HWPT-LID Transparent Well Plate Lid heater is now larger (same outside dims) to provide better heating at the perimeter and unobstructed light access to the wells at the edges.
  • We have designed a holder for brain and other small slices of tissue (MHarp) where the tissue is supported and perfused both below and above the tissue. Initially we have the MH5x5Hp7 one with a 5x5mm area with 0.7mm clearance below. We will make more sizes for larger and smaller pieces of tissue.
  • Our FL-1 Miniature positioners now have magnets installed in the bases. We also provide a magnet compatible stainless steel disc to attach to a tissue chamber etc. to which the FL-1 attaches.
  • Green Leaf Scientific (http://www.greenleafscientific.com) part of RedBoxDirect will be now be distributing our equipment in Europe.
  • We now have a new splash guard for the cF8Vs Valve assembly to replace the covers on the new Bio-chem valves. This also works for the older cF8VS Valve assemblies using the Sirai valves.
  • Modified the outflow area for the BT-CS and BT-CSRG to improve priming.
  • Added a new large ITO heater, the HI-812Dp 78 x 112mm x 1.1mm thick.
  • A new package for the mTCII for use as small animal heater mTCIISAPKG. We use a second surface temp probe for the heater pad so that it does not get hot and so we can also sense if the rectal probe is not placed properly.
  • We have new tissue chambers for brain slices for the Siskiyou stages. The brain slice chambers can also be used with our MSAS-xxx Microscope stage adapters, available for most popular microscopes. We have also a sealable chamber for anoxia and other studies. The chamber also can be used with stimulation (STIM-TB) electrodes.
  • New modified BT-1-18 tissue chamber (BT-1-18BV) with bevelled sides and higher flow rates (up to 4ml/min)
  • New inline pre-heater, the HPRE2HF which can be used with flow rates up to 6ml/min.
