|In-Line Cells are
flow cells available in orifice diameters from 3mm to 15mm which were
designed to replace the Bronaugh Cell. They are made from the plastic
Kel-F which is the 3M product or Neoflon which is the Daikin product.
(This material can be purchased from the Plastic Profiles division of
Central Plastics.) In-Line Cells have a unique clamping system which
features user preset, repeatable, secure clamping of tissue or
membranes. Clamping is achieved with a stainless steel spring that
applies pressure preset by the user to the upper surface of the donor
compartment for leakproof clamping. The cell design locates the orifice
diameters within .1mm of each other. HPLC connectors are used to connect
the cells to 1/16 ID tubing. Stirring effects within the cells are
easily checked with our unique Twin-Flow Conversion System.
|Pictured below is a
cross-sectional view of an In-Line Cell with HPLC fittings and sections
of inlet and outlet tubing included. The HPLC ports in standard In-Line
Cells are threaded for standard 1/4"-28 connectors such as those sold by
Upchurch Scientific. We also supply In-Line Cells with #10-32 threaded
connections upon request. The In-Line Cell may be thought of as a flow
type Franz Cell with a very small receptor volume. In-Line Cells locate
the membrane of interest in the horizontal plane and have donor chambers
open to the air although occluded donor chambers are available.
The drawing below is an exploded view of the In-Line Cell pictured above.
This drawing is of an In-Line Cell with a donor chamber having threads for a septum and cap. These cells may be used when the donor chamber needs to be occluded but may also be used without the septum and cap.
|DUAL FLOW Inline Cells|
|In addition to the standard cells of the above, we made a inline cell with a donor chamber with injection in- and outlet. So now it is possible to take or replace liquids / gas at the same time. We also supply cell of dual-flow type, such as: equipped with a line-injectable possible to extract liquid / gas|
