Novel device capable of preserving and prolonging the viability of animal model tissue used for electrophysiology and/or histology studies.
The health and viability of tissue slices is crucial to gathering quality physiological and pharmacological data using electrophysiological techniques. The Tissue Preservation Chamber has been shown to maintain healthy tissue samples for 6 to 8 hours post-excision from live brain. This device is designed to be used with a preserving fluid, such as artificial cerebrospinal fluid (aCSF), and a regulated carbogen source (e.g., 95% O2, 5% CO2). Gas is introduced to the fluid through a diffuser that rests on the bottom of the chamber, placed away from the chambers housing tissue slices. This feature is critical, as contact between gas bubbles and the tissue samples could compromise tissue viability.
