    Universal Mounting Frame K100protected-Set

    Universal Mounting Frame K100 Set
    Utility Model Protected


    • The Universal Mounting Frame K100protected-Set is a flexible device for scanning and mechanical stages (cut-out 160 x 110 mm) to fix various cell cultivation vessels.
    • It has been specifically designed for the use of large Petri dishes with a diameter of 78-90 mm.
    • Two moveable, smooth running bridges with a variable clamping range allow an easy and quick fixation of the cell cultivation vessel.
    • Depending on the type of cultivation vessel used, one of the four baseplates can be attached to the Universal Mounting Frame K100protected-Set with the enclosed screws.
    • Three further baseplates for specific cultivation vessels are available on demand.
    • For incubation, it is recommended to use the Universal Mounting Frame K100protected-Set in combination with a large incubator. The heating of the vessels is accomplished through the warm air inside the incubator.
    • The pH-value (CO2-concentration) in the media can be adjusted by putting the CO2-Cover 100 on top of the frame and connecting it to a CO2 control unit.
    • The frame can be leveled in the microscope stage by the 4 adjusting screws.
    • The Universal Mounting Frame K100protected-Set is equipped with two spring clips. The spring clips provide for a firm fit of the cell cultivation vessel, especially when using oil or water immersion objectives.

    Application Examples

    Optional: Perfusion with Setup K
    For perfusion, the Setup K is available. The Setup K has been developed for perfusion applications in combination with the Universal Mounting Frame KP-Set, the Universal Mounting Frame KP-Set lockable, or the Universal Mounting Frame K100protected-Set. It fits into the cut-outs (160 x 110 mm) of scanning or mechanical stages. Perfusion tubes and thin cables can be easily led into the interior of the Setup K through six silicone sealed openings.

    Optional: CO2-Incubation
    In addition, a CO2-Cover with a movable glass can be used. The Setup K together with a Universal Mounting Frame Set is compatible to the CO2-Cover HP-MG. In combination with the CO2 control unit, the pH-value in the medium can be kept at an optimal level.
