Precision Miniature Dosing Pump, CFPS-1U, 8 µl/min to 7.3 ml/
min
This unit provides precise linear flow rate control in selectable ranges from 340 nl/min to 22 ml/min. The
range is defined by tubing I.D. and the drive configuration. Precision design and miniature size minimize
pulsations to provide smooth perfusion. Designed for stable solution delivery, perfusion, infusion or
substance application during microscope imaging, recording, calcium and other ions measurement, and
biochemical assays. The miniature size allows to mount the pump next to the sample to minimize the
connecting tubing length. High flow rate units can be used for suction to prevent solution overflow during
perfusion. Can be used with coverslip chambers, lab-on-chips and miniature incubators, and small organs
and animals perfusion setups.
The pump can be controlled manually, using wireless remote, analog input, digital input, and by software

This is a 2-channel perfusion system for precise control of solution flow rate from 8 µl/min to 7.3 ml/min
(or choose upgrades below for different flow rates up to 22ml/min). Includes a 4-channel programmable
controller, which allows upgrade to a 4-channel system. Precision design and miniature size minimize
pulsations to provide smooth perfusion. Designed for stable solution flow or substance application during
imaging, recording, calcium and other ions measurement, biochemical assays or small organs and animals
perfusion.
Digital interface and analog inputs allow you to calibrate each channel independently and to apply one or
multiple substances by switching channels manually or through data acquisition and imaging software.
The controller can be programmed using timers for each channel, or to dispense preset volumes. It also
allows to program continuous sequence of solution applications, which can be used to replenish liquid
media during long-term experiments. You can accurately mix different solutions or generate dose-response
curves using only two solutions: buffer and concentrated test compound.
Each channel can be controlled through wireless remote, manually, by analog signal, TTL or through
RS232 connection for fully automated setups controlled through third party software packages (optional
USB adapters are also available).
The system can be upgraded to operate up to 4 channels in parallel. Can be connected to solution switching miniature systems for changing and mixing solutions in sequence. The optional luer-lock manifolds
will combine multiple solutions into a single output. The size of the 2-channel system is 4x2.5x1.85 in
(separate from the controller). Multiple systems cad be attached to each other to form a multi-channel system. Includes 1 ft.. mounting rod and X-block to attach a standard 0.5in. posts. Comes with a set of tubing

Gas regulator PC-MI
The controller is used to deliver gas mixture inside miniature incubators. Connects to a cylinder with compressed pre-mixed (5% CO2/95% O2 or any other, including nitrogen and low O2) gas. The output connects directly to a gas port of the incubator or a humidifier. The controller regulates output gas pressure to
provide continuous slow stream of gas mixture, to replace residual gases inside the incubator. Can be used
as a source of regulated pressure to saturate solutions with gases and to control flow of solutions. Simple
to use. Can be adjusted to fill incubators of different volumes. Balanced CO2 content inside the incubator
not only controls pH of cell media, but also brings the gas consumption to the minimum. If using a source
of pure CO2, a different CO2-MI controller is required. Item#: PC-MI

Petri Dish Inserts
Temperature Control & Perfusion
in Petri Dishes
Minimize working volume
Use with any petri dishes
Use with any perfusion system
Compatible with Temperature Controlled stations
Petri Dish Insert PDI and Self-Adhesive Gaskets
The insert converts a regular
petri dish into a perfusion chamber. The biocompatible gasket form airtight and leak-proof contact with
the bottom surface of the dish, even if the dish is filled with media or has an uneven surface. Simply press
the insert to the bottom of the dish for a few seconds to form a perfusion system right in your dish. The
low 3 mm profile allows you to use recording electrodes, upright microscopes with water immersion
objectives as well. It has small working volume: conical opening with 11 mm I.D. on the bottom and 19
mm on the top. The chamber has two separate openings for solution inflow and outflow to prevent bubbles
from entering the working compartment. The laminar profile facilitates perfusion and provides faster
solution exchange. Can be used with 50mm glass bottom dishes for easy access with water immersion
objectives. Item#: PDI

Low Profile Perfusion Set for Petri dishes
Comes with PDI insert and 50 self-
adhesive biocompatible gaskets, which allow to use the assembly with regular 35 mm petri dishes.
Cells cultured in 35 mm Petri dishes are a popular research tool used in numerous applications, including
patch clamping and intracellular ion probe imaging. However, true perfusion (continuous inflow and outflow) of solutions can be difficult to configure. Drug delivery without an outflow requires a spritzer-type
microinjector, but ultimately results in contamination of the entire dish after only a few applications. This
forces scientists to plate cells on cover slips for placement into specially designed perfusion chambers.
However, such transfer is a time consuming process which introduces the potential for contamination plus
additional expense.
The PDI chamber was designed by scientists after several years of patch clamp research combined with
external perfusion of single cells cultured in Petri dishes. The chamber has separate openings for solution
inflow and outflow that dump the fluctuations of the liquid level in the working compartment and prevents
bubbles from entering the chamber. The laminar profile facilitates perfusion and provides faster solution
exchange. An adjustable metal suction tube (included) controls the level of liquid in the dish. The chamber
was designed for use with perfusion systems and magnetic holder with miniature ball-joint, which can
accommodate perfusion manifolds. Can be used with glass bottom dishes for imaging. In fact, some glass
bottom dishes are made from standard petri dishes like Corning 35 mm, for example. Can be used with
temperature controlled systems. The suction tubing requires connection to an outflow source CFPS-1U.
Includes three magnetic tubing/electrode holders, and stainless suction tubing. A microscope adapter MA
is required. Can be used with both magnetic and non-magnetic microscope adapters. If used with nonmagnetic adapters, a IMA-MH set of miniature holders is required. Item#: LPPCP1

Low Profile Small Volume Laminar Perfusion Chamber for Coverslips, PCCS2
Inside diameter is only 10 mm. The chamber has two separate openings for solution inflow and outflow
to provide smooth perfusion and prevent bubbles from coming in. Low profile permits easy access with
electrodes, pipettes and immersion optics. Combined with miniature holders, forms a perfusion system.
Easy to use, simply release adhesive layer on the coverslip (even with media still present), and attach the
chamber from the top. Coverslip is flashed on the bottom of the chamber.
The chamber is made out of polycarbonate. It is only 5.5 mm thick (high). The bottom of the chamber is
a replaceable 30mm round coverslip. The coverslip is attached to the chamber by using adhesive layers
(or any adhesive, even melted wax). Easy to clean after use. Note: Can be used with any thickness 30mm
coverslips.
The chamber fits inside microscope stage adapter, specify microscope model when ordering. The chamber
can be rotated inside the stage to provide required orientation of the sample. Custom stages for non-standard microscopes are available upon request.
Screw-type or magnetic tubing/electrode holders extend this flexibility even further. They can be positioned anywhere around the chamber, so that tubing is not in the way of objectives or recording electrodes.
Furthermore, the holders can adjust the angle and, as a result, tubing can approach the sample from any
direction. The holders fit to perfusion manifolds. They also can be used to position reference electrodes
or temperature probes, or even tubing to deliver gases, for example oxygen, over the sample. MTH-S
stainless suction tubing provides smooth perfusion. If you are planning to use this system during perfusion experiments, all you need is a outflow unit for suction to remove solution during perfusion. Can be
used for imaging and recording. Can be also used with 50mm BD Falcon and Willco glass bottom dishes.

Miniature Manifold on Adjustable Micropositioner, MMH-MM
This 8-channel micro-manifold for single cell/small tissue superfusion comes mounted on 3-D fine micropositioner with 12mm working distance in all axes and micron resolution. If you do not have a magnetic
surface, the assembly can be mounted using provided screws adapters.
Micro-manifolds are used to achieve fast solution application to small samples (single cells, for example).
Due to the small size of the sample, solution exchange around the sample can happen in as fast as few
ms. The micro-manifolds also offer advantage of not contaminating the whole bath chamber, but applying
the substances locally (provided that perfusion chamber is used with frequent wash). Comes with three
replaceable threaded tips of 360, 250 and 100 micron I.D. for single cell and small tissue superfusion.
Incorporates 2 ft. long Teflon tubing for direct connection to perfusion systems. Inside Teflon tubing is
easy to wash. The threaded replaceable tips are washable and allow you to use the manifold with solutions
under higher pressure. The length of tips is around 1 in., and can be cut to the required length. Incorporates 10cm long 4mm O.D. rod to mount on miniature manipulators and 7mm O.D. adapter to mount on
regular manipulators. Incorporates eight separate channels. If used with less than 8 different solutions,
multiple channels can be filled with the same solution, for faster wash-out for example. Requires a perfusion system. Can be used with small volume delivery systems, SVDS1. Includes two nozzles to use with
small volume chambers as a regular manifold (the rod fits inside magnetic holders MTH). Item#: MMHMM

Zero-Dead Volume Manifold, ZMM
Zero-dead volume facilitates solution exchange inside small volume perfusion chambers. The output channels can be adjusted at a different height to prevent contamination of solutions. The outputs for lower
concentration solutions, for example, can be positioned higher so that they do not mix with other
solutions. The upper channels can be also used to provide suction of excess of solution from small volume
perfusion chambers.

and image analysis experiments.
The heating elements with reduced optical window in the middle (down to 15 or 11mm) will provide better temperature stability for your sample, and are perfect for use with glass bottom dishes and long-working-distance objectives. If immersion objectives are used, however, this small window will limit access
of the large immersion objective to the whole bottom surface. In this case a heating element with 35mm
clearance/window TC-E35 should be used. Temperature stability still can be provided by using an objective heater.
In contrasts to glass bottom dishes, which provide good thermal contact because of flat glass bottom,
standard plastic Petri dishes very often have a protruding rim alone the bottom edges of the dish. This
rim elevates the dish above heating surface. Metal shims/washes can be used to eliminate this air gap,
however. This will reduce access for the immersion optics to the bottom of the dish, so TC-E35x15/11 can
be used with long-distance objectives only. If using immersion optics and large objectives, 35mm heating
element TC-E35 should be used, combined with an objective heater. Please note, that some glass bottom
dishes, Mattek dishes for example, are fabricated from standard Corning (or Falcon dishes).
Since different brands of dishes have different outside diameter, sometimes larger than 38mm, we make
reducing inserts to provide better fit and thermal contact to the inside cutout of the heating elements,
which is 38mm. We also make a 50mm insert to center the dishes inside incubators and larger heating elements, which have 50mm inside cutout.

Cooling & Heating
Miniature Perfusion Cooler/Heater Unit TC-RD
Controls temperature of perfusion solutions in the range from 0 to 100°C. A small heating/cooling element
is designed to mount on a manipulator next to your sample to provide fast temperature changes by
streaming the solution directly onto the sample. Monitoring and control temperature by data acquisition
systems through BNC connectors on the back panel. Set temperature either manually or using your data
acquisition interface, to generate ramps, for example. Optimized for patch clamp applications: no
electrical noise. Can be powered by 12V rechargeable batteries (charger and batteries are included).
On the right is an example of fast temperature change inside a petri dish. Experimental conditions: TC-RD
system was set at 0°C; the petri dish was set at 30°C using another TC-1 controller and TC-PCP heating
stage; two flow control CFPS-1U66 units were used - one for solution suction from the dish, through PDI
insert inside the dish; and another CFPS-1U66 to cool heat sink of TC-RD unit; the third CFPS-1U unit
was used to perfuse the dish; a slow temperature sensor was used to simulate temperature change in the
whole dish; the actual temperature change in the point of solution application is much faster. Item#: TCRD

This unit provides precise linear flow rate control in selectable ranges from 340 nl/min to 22 ml/min. The
range is defined by tubing I.D. and the drive configuration. Precision design and miniature size minimize pulsations to provide smooth perfusion. Designed for stable solution delivery, perfusion, infusion or substance
application during microscope imaging, recording, calcium and other ions measurement, and biochemical
assays. The miniature size allows to mount the pump next to the sample to minimize the connecting tubing
length. High flow rate units can be used for suction to prevent solution overflow during perfusion. Can be
used with coverslip chambers, lab-on-chips and miniature incubators, and small organs and animals perfusion
setups.
The pump can be controlled manually, using wireless remote, analog input, digital input, and by software
through RS232 port. The unit can be programmed using built-in timers to provide precise dosing at certain
period. Can be used to apply multiple solutions, if linked to automated perfusion systems, which can be
programmed to deliver sequences of different solutions. You can accurately mix different solutions or generate dose-response curves using only two solutions: control and concentrated test compound. You can even
generate concentration gradients to simulate substance distribution in time.

Miniature Manifolds
Miniature Manifold for Single Cell Superfusion
Micro-manifolds are used
to achieve fast solution application to small samples (single cells, for example). Due to the small size of
the sample, solution exchange around the sample can happen in as fast as few ms. The micro-manifolds
also offer advantage of not contaminating the whole bath chamber, but applying the substances locally
(provided that perfusion chamber is used with frequent wash). Comes with three replaceable threaded tips
of 360, 250 and 100 micron I.D. for single cell and small tissue superfusion. Incorporates 2 ft. long Teflon
tubing for direct connection to perfusion systems. Inside Teflon tubing is easy to wash. The threaded
replaceable tips are washable and allow you to use the manifold with solutions under higher pressure. The
length of tips is around 1 in., and can be cut to the required length. Incorporates 10cm long 4mm O.D. rod
to mount on miniature manipulators and 7mm O.D. adapter to mount on regular manipulators. Incorporates eight separate channels. If used with less than 8 different solutions, multiple channels can be filled
with the same solution, for faster wash-out for example. Requires a perfusion system. Can be used with
small volume delivery systems, SVDS1. Includes two nozzles to use with small volume chambers as a
regular manifold (the rod fits inside magnetic holders MTH). Item#: MM
• Channels: 8-channel, 360 micron

Replacement Tip, Threaded, Set of 4
Set of four removable tips with threaded
connector for the Miniature Manifold MM. The length of the tip is around 1 in. It can be cut shorter if
92

required. Choose inside tip diameter when ordering. Item#: TIP-MM
Zero-Dead Volume Manifold
Zero-dead volume facilitates solution exchange inside
small volume perfusion chambers. The output channels can be adjusted at a different height to prevent
contamination of solutions. The outputs for lower concentration solutions, for example, can be positioned
higher so that they do not mix with other solutions. The upper channels can be also used to provide suction
of excess of solution from small volume perfusion chambers.
Incorporated magnetic holder allows you to position the manifold anywhere around your sample. Two
thumb screws fix the manifold in required position: height, angle, length. Comes with 2 ft. long Teflon
tubing, attached to polyimide 250/360 micron I.D. channels. All tubing is replaceable and washable.
Perfusion system or/and pressurized Small Volume Delivery System SVDS1 is required. Can be used with
small volume PCCS2, CSC chambers and petri dish inserts. Consider microbore tubing fitting PS-kit.
Ships configured with six 360micron channels, which allow you do make from 1 to 6-channel manifolds.
Specify if 8-channel 250 micron I.D. channels are required.. Item#: ZMM

Luer-Lock Manifold
This luer-lock manifold can be used with any needle, connecting tubing,
nozzle or catheters that have luer connector. Inside Teflon tubing is easy to wash (2 ft. long). Light weight
design allows one to attach the manifold directly to animals for infusion/perfusion, for example. Can be
used with regular, controlled flow or pressurized perfusion systems. Includes a set of nozzles, from 30 to
16 gauge. Custom polyimide, Teflon or stainless steel tubing/catheters or nozzles of specified length and
diameter are available upon request. Item#: PM

Multi-Channel Systems to Control and Process Samples
This is a
computerized setup/robot to manipulate environment in small volumes - around live samples, for example.
The miniature size allows you to process samples directly on microscope stages. Since you do not have to
remove samples from the microscope stage, this can be used to relate live and processed samples before
and after treatment, for example. Can be used with any cell chambers, including LabTek chambered
coverglasses from Nunc and multi-well plates. The minimum 2-channel configuration includes 2-channel
solution handling unit and 8-channel solution switch to mix up to eight different solutions. The system
can be configured so that there is no contamination between critical components/reagents. Shipped with
control software installed on a new Dell laptop/notebook computer. Can be preprogrammed for any protocol, including cell staining and labeling. Systems with temperature and gas environment control are also
available.
Bioscience Tools Software Automation Package
This software package
can automate any protocol or process, which involve solution switching, mixing, flow and temperature
control, test substance application and environment manipulation. Can be used to automate your routine
sample treatment or staining procedure, by entering protocol parameters from any commercially available
biochemical kit. If you contact us with specific protocol request, we will ship you the package configured
and ready to use for the protocols required. This automation will save you considerable amount of time
and ingredients. You do not have to dilute chemicals to the required concentrations, and software will
dispense just necessary amount of solution to perform the reactions.
Using our proprietary controller, you can work with any hardware, which accepts 8-bit digital I/O or/and
TTL signals. The controller can read digital and analog signals to program triggered events. This can be
used to control the process by external software, imaging, for example.
98
www.biosciencetools.com
The package comprises two major parts: editing and hardware control. Initially, you create or open an
existing protocol. Adjust the required solution application and mixing sequences, and then, run the
protocol when needed again and again.
The execution part allows you not only run the protocol automatically, but switch channels and external
devices manually. With simple and user friendly interface, the protocol can be stopped at any time. The
time sequence can be verified by accessing the time log.
