Temperature Control > Low-profile heated stages

Low Profile Heated Stage, TC-E50x30

Larger diameter of this heating element allows you to form low-profile recording and perfusion setups, suitable for use even under upright microscopes. The heating element accepts dishes up to 52mm diameter. Can be used with smaller chambers and 35mm dishes, if combined with reducing adapter-rings. Heating happens from the bottom to eliminate temperature gradient. Optical clearance is 28.5mm. Can be used with  PCCS2 low-profile perfusion chambers, which are only 4mm high. Can be used with sealed thin chambers for high resolution imaging. Can be upgraded with an objective heater for immersion optics. Can be used with CSC coverslip chambers as well. Requires a microscope adapter, specify microscope model when ordering. Click on images to enlarge.
