CO2 Microscope Stage Incubator - Water-Jacket
Available from OKOLAB: Live Cell Microscopy
The CO2 Water-Jacket Microscope Stage Incubator provides superior incubation stability. Water is pumped from a water bath into the base plate and into the lid, which are both Water Jackets. Modelsl fitting all XY stages on the market are available. Chambers suitable for high magnification microscopy and multipoint experiments are available. Heating and Heating/Cooling models available. A wide choice of inserts adds flexibility to the equipment and allows to accept any cell culture support (petri-dishes, chamber slides, mutiwell plates, etc.).
Temperature is directly measured inside a reference Petri-dish and is controlled by a software PID controller. The software 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 system can be alternatively equipped with passive CO2 or Digital CO2 controller. Hypoxia controller can be added upon request. A humidifying and a pre-heating module prevent medium evaporation and avoid water condensation on glass and plastic surfaces.emperature Control Software communicates with the water bath and with the temperature meter ensuring a temperature stability of ± 0.1°C . Intelligent software tools avoid thermal shock to the specimen when the CO2 Microscope Stage Incubator is opened (Thermal shock prevention). A software temperature offset compensates the heat sink caused by oil immersion objectives.
