Heating Element with 15mm aperture, TC-E35x15

Fits 35mm dishes (might require TC-PA reducing O-ring). The whole bottom is heated to eliminate temperature gradient, which makes it ideal for Petri dishes, including glass bottom dishes. Wide 15mm aperture to access your sample with immersion optics from the bottom. Built-in temperature sensor.  Since some brands of Petri dishes have different diameter, reducing adapters TC-PA might be required. Incorporates PTFE  perfusion tubing, which makes the element to work as inline preheater. Requires a microscope adapters with 50mm mounting opening. Requires a temperature controller. This element is a part of TC-PD-35x15 heating stages. Click on image to enlarge. If wider opening is required, use TC-E35 with 35mm aperture. 

Heating Element with 11m aperture, TC-E35x11

Fits 35mm dishes. The whole bottom is heated to eliminate temperature gradient, which makes it ideal for Petri dishes, including glass bottom dishes with small optical window. Wide 11mm aperture to access your sample with immersion optics from the bottom. Built-in temperature sensor. Since some brands of Petri dishes have different diameter, reducing adapters TC-PA might be required. Incorporates PTFE perfusion tubing, which makes the element to work as inline preheater. Requires a microscope adapters with 50mm mounting opening. Requires a temperature controller. This element is a part of TC-PD-35x11 heating stages. If wider clearance is required, use TC-E35 with 35mm clearance. Click on image to enlarge.

Note: This heater is well suited for glass bottom dishes, that have flat bottom, for use with any optics. However, some plastic Petri dishes have a protruding rim on the bottom, which elevates the dish above the surface. Optional metal shims and thermal compounds are used to eliminate this gap,  and to conduct the heat to the dish. This allows you to use the heater with regular plastic Petri dishes as well. Due to the elevated positioning of the dish, the effective optical clearance (11/15mm) might be decreased if used with Plastic dish and oil immersion optics. For this configuration, 35mm clearance heater is recommended.
