The Classic Ussing design presented here varies little from the original equipment created by Dr. Hans Ussing. The system,s low initial cost, coupled with the modest cost of add-on components, makes it an ideal option for classroom instruction and in-the-field research.
The U9926 and U2500 Self-Contained Ussing chambers improve on the Classic design by bringing the solution reservoir into the chamber housing reducing the apparatus size and increasing ease-of-use.
The Navicyte system features the capability of running up to 6 chambers simultaneously and is optimized for transport studies on both filter grown monolayers and surgically excised tissue sections.
The NaviCyte Horizontal System is specifically designed to allow transport studies on cells and tissues exposed to an air interface.
The EasyMount chamber systems are ideal for studies requiring electrophysiological measurement of transmembrane resistance. While visually similar to the NaviCyte Vertical chambers, EasyMount chambers are different in that they use inserts to position and secure tissues or culture cups within the chamber body.
The Single and Dual Epithelial Voltage Clamp Systems are designed for studies of epithelial transport and the electrical properties of tissues.
Amplifiers designed to provide accurate measurements of transepithelial voltage, short circuit current and membrane resistance.
When combined with WPI’s patented EKC and EKV cartridge electrodes, EVC4000 can efficiently voltage or current clamp up to four sample membranes simultaneously using safe moderate voltages on the current wire leads.
WPI’s Ussing System offers researchers a quick, effective means of making low-resistance electrical connections to the Ussing chamber without need of long agar bridges or Calomel half-cells.
The P2300 Ussing chamber is our most versatile chamber in that it also directly accommodates sliders (holders) for a variety of animal tissues (see options below). Usable half chamber volume is 2.0 - 8.0 ml.
