Miniature Microscope Incubators > Incubator for 128x86mm plates



Growth of human lymphocytes in Petri dishes placed inside incubator connected to a 2-channel temperature and CO2 controllers. The pictures taken before and after 60 hours (2.5 days) incubation show cells growing to cover the whole bottom of the Petri dish. Provided by Rui Liu from Kun Zhang lab, UCSD La Jolla, CA


Miniature Incubator with heated glass bottom for motorized and type K stages, TC-MWPHB

For open bottom incubators go to TC-MWP

Designed for long-term live cell imaging and time-lapsed microscopy. For use with standard multi-well plates. Fits all brands of motorized stages (see table below). Incorporates heated bottom, luer-lock port for gas mixture (to control CO2 and hypoxia), and heated cover lid (purchased separately) to prevent condensation. Built-in multiple ports for tubing and accessories (tubing, probes and sensors). The bottom is closed with 1mm glass (for open bottom incubator, to access with immersion objective - consider TC-MWP model). Consider a modified incubator for easy positioning of tubing to deliver media and test solutions to custom devices. Click on image for inside view.

Miniature Incubator with heated bottom, TC-MWP-6

The metal heated bottom of this incubator has round cutouts, so there is no obstruction on the way of optical path (x6 for 6-well plates, different number and pattern of cutouts can be made for different plates). Designed for long-term live cell imaging and time-lapsed microscopy. For use with standard multi-well plates. Fits all brands of motorized stages (see table below). Incorporates luer-lock port for gas mixture (to control CO2 and hypoxia), and heated cover (purchased separately)  to prevent condensation. Built-in multiple ports for tubing and accessories (probes and sensors). The bottom thickness is 2mm, the aperture diameter is 30mm (for 6-well plates). Recommended for long distance optics because wider microscope objectives might not fit inside the cutouts. For open bottom incubator, to access with immersion objective - consider TC-MWP model. Consider a modified incubator TC-MIW for easy positioning of tubing to deliver media and test solutions to custom devices.
