Bioptechs FCS3, Closed Chamber System

Bioptechs FCS3, Closed Chamber System

Closed system, parallel plate, micro-environmental chamber for upright microscopes


The FCS3® System is an environmental chamber used on a microscope to enable the acquisition of high resolution, time-lapse images of cells undergoing either natural growth or fluidic exposure to variant factors. The FCS3® provides the same capabilities on an upright microscope as the FCS2® system does for inverted microscopes. Both systems enable the user to define precise and unlimited flow characteristics within the chamber to suit their protocols. Bioptechs'patented thermal design provides uniform temperature control across the entire field. This is a feature that is not possible with a peripheral only heated chamber.

  • Suitable for static or high flow rate procedures where a rapid exchange of media is required with low cell surface shear.
  • Cell temperature can be controlled from ambient to 50°C +/- 0.2°C without the need of an air curtain.
  • Temperature is controlled uniformly across the entire field with media equilibrating as it enters the chamber.
  • Closed system so that bicarbonate CO2 or organic buffers can be employed.
  • Compatible with 1/16" tubing for perfusion (C-Flex, Tygon, etc)
  • Easily assembled with ordinary skill (no tools required).
  • Stand-alone temperature controller with an alarm circuit to safeguard you cells.
  • Near laminar flow
