The stimulator is an add-on module that expands the functionality of BioCAM X. The module has been designed to be integrated inside the BioCAM X to save your equipment space. The module’s channels can be directly accessed through the BioCAM X’s rear connector or, more easily, through the included BX110A external connector box. The stimulator module features (see full specs):
The external connector box BX110A facilitates the access to channels provided by BioCAM X and its internal modules (for instance the stimulation module). It provides:
Thanks to our long experience with neuronal cell culture, we realized MIB, a Mini-incubator box for BioCAM X, to enable long-term recordings from neuronal cell cultures on microelectrode arrays. MIB can be easily connected to the O2/CO2 line. The temperature is constantly monitored by the BioCAM X temp-control.
Our MEA lids have been specifically designed for our HD-MEA probes. They are made of polytetrafluoroethylene (Teflon™) and have a transparent membrane (FEP: fluorinated ethylene-propylene) stretched across the top. The membrane allows the diffusion of gases, but limits evaporation, thus reducing the need for a humidified atmosphere, while also preventing culture contamination. Caps can be sterilized and are available with just the FEP membrane (BC100A; left figure) or equipped with a perfusion inlet and outlet (BC101A; right figure).
