Silicone Imaging Chamber (Warner)

The RC-26GS is the classic RC-26G chamber in a disposable, silicone format.

  • Eliminates the need for a grease seal
  • Incorporates Warner's diamond fluidics
  • Low cost for disposable applications

The polycarbonate RC-26G chamber has been one of Warner Instruments' most popular recording and imaging chambers. We now offer this classic chamber in a disposable, silicone-based format.  The format of the RC-26GS chamber carries with it all of the features of the classic RC-26G design, including the use of a 22 × 40 mm coverslip for the chamber floor.


                               RC-26GS  and  PM-8


A special magnetic platform, the PM-8, is used to clamp the RC-26GS silicone chamber and coverslip together. The clamping action of the PM-8, along with the silicone, makes for a very secure seal between the chamber and coverslip without the use of messy vacuum greases.The RC-26GS silicone chamber enables excellent access for both water-immersion objectives and for electrodes when used with an upright microscope. The bath volume of the RC-26GS is 234 ul/mm. The large diamond-shaped bath area allows for the insertion and removal of 15 mm round coverslips. Large samples can be directly placed into this chamber.The RC-26GS silicone chamber and platform requires a stage adapter to complete the assembly for mounting onto a microscope.Chambers are packaged in lots of two and are supplied with an ST-3 suction tube, a MAG-2 magnetic clamp (for suction tubes), a pack of #1 thickness glass coverslips (CS-22/40, 22 × 40 mm, 50/pkg.), and 10 ft of PE-160 tubing.Material
