Cell Culture Chamber

The QV600 chamber has been designed for surface cultures, such as skin, respiratory epithelium or whole corneas. Additionally, the use of transwells to create a double cavity chamber, ideal for the study of membranes and barrier models.

The QV600 provides a constant medium surface, positioned to allow the membrane on commercial inserts to sit at this height and provide cell cultures with a continuous perfusion of media as well as exposure to a controlled gaseous environment.

The QV600 chamber can also be fitted with an alternative insert to create a double cavity chamber ideal for the study of membranes and barrier models.

KEY BENEFITS

Users of the QV600 can expect to profit from a number of key benefits associate with the QV600 cell culture chambers;

  • Continuous flow of medium across cell cultures
  • Consistent ALI level within chambers – no risk of cells drying due to evaporation.
  • Ports for control of gas within culture
  • Simple fluid level control
  • Sized for commercially available inserts
