1000 µm central compartment with (2) 500 µm microgroove barriers
Triple Compartment Neuron Device (1000 μm microgroove barrier)
Size: Size: ~ 38 mm – ~24mm
The TCND1000 consists of (2) 500 μm microgroove barriers with a 1000 μm central compartment. This device makes it possible to culture cortical neurons in the left and right compartments while culturing hippocampal neurons, or other combinations of cells, in the middle. The triple compartment is also suitable for transport studies where the researcher wishes to treat the middle of the axon growing in the middle compartment while observing effects at the growth cone or in the somal compartment. Neurons can also be loaded in the central compartment and different treatments applied to the left and right compartments.
