The glass Zigmond chamber is designed for morphologic studies of cell chemotaxis. It is ideally suited for qualitative studies in which high-resolution light microscopy is used to observe cells while they orient and migrate.
The chamber consists of a 2mm thick, 25mm x 75mm glass microscope slide with two grooves 4mm wide and 1mm deep, separated by a 1mm wide section referred to as the “bridge.” Two holes are provided at each end of the slide to accept pin clamps. The clamps hold a 22mm x 40mm cover glass in place during incubation and viewing of cells.
Included with each Z02 is a protocol detailing the proper use and care of the chamber.
