The Water Jacket Incubator provides superior incubation stability above and below room temperature. Water is pumped from a water bath into the base plate and into the lid, which are both Water Jackets.Temperature is measured inside a reference Petri-dish and is controlled by circulating water from a water bath into the Water Jacket Chamber. The Temperature Controller reads the temperature in the reference well and updates the set point temperature of the water bath, ensuring a specimen temperature stability of ± 0.1°C.
The Stage Top Chambers fits in the XY stage or Piezo insert of the microscope, connects to Okolab Temperature, Gas and Humidity Controllers and creates the proper environment for live cell imaging right on the microscope stage.
Metal Plates.... ....for Inverted and Upright Microscopes
The Metal Plate creates a warm surface perfectly flush with the microscope stage. It employs a surface sensor to ensure the highest accuracy on temperature reading. The Metal Plates require H401-T-CONTROLLER, which can control independently up to two devices.
Glass T Plates... ....for Inverted/Upright/Stereo microscopes and Cabinets
The Glass T Plate creates a warm and optically transparent surface perfectly flush with the microscope stage. It employs Indium Tin Oxide (ITO) coating to obtain uniform heating throughout the glass surface and a surface sensor to ensure the highest accuracy on temperature reading. The glass is chemically strengthened and protected by a rigid aluminum frame.
The Glass Plates require H401-T-CONTROLLER, which can control independently up to two devices.
The microscope enclosure creates a large volume around the microscope in which temperature is controlled by recirculating warm air.
It is made of polycarbonate panels and encloses microscope stage, nosepiece and objectives. It doesn't affect focus stability. All electronics including EMCCDs, spinning disk confocal etc. are left outside of the enclosure avoiding exposure to 37°C.
The enclosure closely follows the microscope profile and is supported by posts resting on the vibration isolation table.
