The Edinburgh Temperature Controller System (ETC) provides a unique solution for monitoring and controlling a full electrophysiology rig and provides the capability to run acute-slice experiments overnight.

In a brain slice chamber, the conventional heater can cause droplets of condensation from the fluid filled chamber to form on the cooler electrodes and consequently limit the time available to collect brain slice recording.

Rather than controlling the heating of the slice chamber, the proprietary temperature software controller maintains the temperature of everything within the insulated rig. The temperature of the oxygenated air, the brain slice, the electrodes and the remaining rig equalise providing a stable environment for long-term recordings.

For example, the temperature can be maintained at a constant 32°C and extend the length of slice viability to times that allow investigations of long-term changes in synaptic connectivity.
Key features of the ETC System include:

  • Accurate control of temperature (+/- 0.1°C)
  • Monitor and control of temperature of electrophysiology rig in excess of 12 hours
  • Eliminates the formation of water droplets on recording electrodes
  • One system can control several rigs leading to savings over other temperature controllers
  • ETC can eliminate the need for operator intervention once recording begins, allowing unattended overnight experiments

This software is suitable for investigating long-term changes in synaptic connectivity in brain slices, intestinal tissue samples and pericardial heart tissue samples.

N.B. Minimum System Requirements:
P4 3GHz processor with 1 Gb RAM running Windows XP, Vista or 7 - 32bit only

An ETC System can run multiple rigs using additional channels, up to a maximum of 8 rigs (employing 1 ETC System with 7 additional channels). A minimum of one system per room is recommended. If you require multiple systems / channel options not listed below please contact us.

The ETC System is available for internal use only under licence from the University of Edinburgh. Please see table below for options and pricing.
