Disposable capillary units (DCUs)
Ready-to-use sterile DCUs with variable tip diameter ensure precision of the collection process and minimize contamination. DCUs are available at three standard IDs: 20 μm (±20%), 50 μm (±15%) and 100 μm (±10%). They are made from either thick (K) or thin (N) walled borosilicate capillaries with filament. Custom IDs are available on request.
The inner diameter of a DCU approximately corresponds to a size of the acquisition area. The acquisition area may vary depending on the used vacuum duration and strength. For the collection of cells from adherent cultures 20 to 50 μm DCUs are recommended. DCUs are sold in packages of 6.
Universal sample holder
This adapter allows for collection and deposition of samples in multiple configurations – from slide to slide, plate to plate, slide to plate, slide or plate to PCR tubes, 8-tube strips or a 48-well plate. The universal sample holder must be used with UnipicK+Auto™ and A-picK™ instruments to ensure compatibility with the software.
Universal microscope straddle
Universal straddle permits pairing both UnipicK and UnipicK+ systems with nearly any inverted microscope from cell culture microscopes to more advanced systems for unmatched flexibility in laboratory work. Currently, our bridge can accomode 375 mm, 475 mm, and 575 mm wide microscope models. Dimensions: H280-410 mm X W395, 495, 595 mm X L460-480 mm.
Microscope slide heating system
Slide heating system ensures precise and stable thermal control from room temperature to 120 °C (248 °F) with 0.1 °C accuracy. Heated glass slide provides uniformly heated surface. Preheating to 120 °C takes approximately 30 seconds. It is designed to fit our UNIVERSAL SAMPLE HOLDER or may be used directly with any standard microscope stage. Specifications:
