The patented* C-Dish™ works with the C-Pace EM chronic cell stimulator to form a complete system for the chronic stimulation of bulk-quantities of cardiac myocytes (and other excitable cells) in culture. The C-Dish™ is a simple, 2-piece assembly that precisely places carbon electrode elements in a variety of standard culture plates. A ribbon cable connector provides access to the field stimulating electrodes.
