    The Combined Plate Chamber is a standard manufacture fitting virtually any type of inverted microscope.

    As described in UNESCO's Phytoplankton Manual (published 1978) the Combined Plate Chamber allows you to look at sedimented plankton samples from a very short distance. How? Put the sample into a cylinder on top of the rectangular plexiglass plate with a thin base plate, let the fixed plankton concentrate and after sedimentation simply push the cylinder with excess liquid aside. The handling support underneath the plate will collect the extra water from the cylinder. You can now take the plate and examine the sample under an inverted microscope. Three calibrated cylinder sizes are provided with each set allowing to analyze different sample volumes.

    The basic kit includes a set of cylinders 10 / 50 / 100 ml. Complete with cover plates, also base plates and handling support. The complete kit includes in addition a cylinder of 25 ml, and additional cover and base plates. Items can be purchased separately too.

    The Base Plate Set, includes the Base Plate, the Threaded Ring and the Ring Detacher.
