Made in the USA
The IBI 3-channel Flow Cell (formerly Stovall 3-channel Flow Cell) is designed as a one-time use, affordable, sterile 3-channel flow cell apparatus for the creation of biofilms. This device allows for real-time, direct, non-destructive, on-line examination of biofilms with either a traditional transmission light microscope or a scanning confocal laser microscope which will produce a 3-D image of the biofilm.
The 3-channel flow cell is gamma irradiated and comes complete with bubble trap (ACCFL0002) and peristaltic pump tubing and connective tubing. The 3-channel flow cell contains a #1 Glass cover slip. The underside of this cover slip is where the biofilm will attach and grow. When the experiment is complete, the cover slip is cut using a hand-held glass cutter (ACCFL0014) and removed along with the biofilm.
• The 3 separate channels allow for the simultaneous growth of 3 individual biofilms in the same cell.
• Luer connectors in the effluent tubing (downstream from the cell) allow for collection of effluent for further analysis.
• 3-channel full assembly measures 91 inches long including cell and tubing.
• Included bubble trap captures air bubbles before they reach the cell and also smooth peristaltic pump pulsations.
• System comes sterilized (gamma irradiated) and ready for use.
• Culture media bottles and peristaltic pump purchased separately.
3-Channel Flow cell includes:
One, 3-channel cell w/#1 Glass Cover Slip.
Peristaltic pump tubing.
Clear Influent and effluent tubing.
Inoculation tape (used to wrap around tubing and allow sterile injection of bacterial cells)
Gamma Irradiated in sealed packaging.
Typical flow rates thru 3-channel cell: 3ml – 5ml per/hour for each channel.
Up to four, 3-channel cells can be run simultaneously with the use of a 12-channel peristaltic pump.
Total length of 3-channel system including tubing: 91 inches.
Single channel dimensions: 1mm x 4mm x 40mm
3-channel cell, bubble trap and tubing can be placed inside 37 deg. incubator during use.
