3D Printed Superfusion Chamber
Marat Minlebaev and colleagues from Kazan Federal University used 3D printing methods to create a superfusion chamber and other parts for use in electrophysiology and neuroimaging studies in vivo. The project consists of a superfusion chamber, a brain presser, and five other parts that combine into a modular device that facilitates the transfer of pharmacological agents and brain access for electrodes and/or lenses for imaging. They demonstrate the use of the device in a series of studies using optical intrinsic imaging and extracellular and intracellular recordings in the rat barrel cortex. The device is easy and inexpensive to print either in-house or through a 3d-printing service, making this set accessible for virtually any lab. All downloads can be accessed from Gitlab.
