Heating & Cooling Temperature controller BTC-1-100

Can be used with Temperature controlled microscope stages, heated and cooled. Low electrical noise, heating and cooling temperature controller for microscope stages.
  • External Bath probes (optional) and internal Stage temperature sensor
  • Automatically switches from Heating to Cooling
  • Over-heating protection prevents damage to your sample
  • Does not introduce electrical noise during recordings
  • Standby mode 
  • Plastic-encapsulated external probes: no metal ions leakage into solutions

Most heating and cooling stages work as inline solution pre-heaters. Can be used with flow control and perfusion systems. Includes connecting cables. An external temperature probe might be needed, to monitor bath temperature for example. Click on catalog numbers below to purchase online.

Programmable 2-Channel Bipolar Precision High Stability Temperature Controller TC2-80-150/BTC-2-100, Low Electrical Noise

Can be used with Temperature controlled microscope stages. Provides higher stability required for some sensitive applications, nano/piezo positioning, confocal or AFM  imaging for example. Flexible controls for stable operation and easy to use through the graphical touch-screen. Up to four steps (or ramps) can be programmed (8 steps if only one channel is used).
  • No drift due to high stability, 0.01C.
  • No vibrations during imaging and recording - no internal fan
  • Plastic-encapsulated external probes: no metal ions leakage into solutions
  • Automatic cooling
  • Self-tuning, no adjustments are required
  • Multiple temperature sensors to choose for feedback, STAGE and BATH
  • Built-in overheating protection
  • Inputs for programmed temperature changes
  • Analog and Digital Outputs to monitor and SET temperature, RS232 port
  • Digital interface for software control
  • No electrical noise - suitable for electrophysiology
Can be used with objective heaters and with perfusion systems: most heating stages work as inline solution pre-heaters.
