Cooling/Heating Insert UP-Set 2000

The insert is designed for the sta­ble cool­ing and heat­ing of cell cul­ture sys­tems and has a high tem­per­a­ture con­stan­cy and ther­mal con­duc­tiv­i­ty. Made from one piece of alu­mini­um it is espe­cial­ly suit­ed for the cool­ing and heat­ing of of Petri dish­es (“35” and “60”) and POC Cell Cul­ti­va­tion Sys­tems on upright micro­scopes.


  • Sol­id cool­ing and heat­ing ele­ment with a uni­form heat dis­tri­b­u­tion and  a high ther­mal con­duc­tiv­i­ty
  • Espe­cial­ly for the use with Petri dish­es (“35” and “60”) and POC Cell Cul­ti­va­tion Sys­tems
  • Spec­i­mens are firm­ly seat­ed in the insert: best solu­tion for the work with high mag­ni­fi­ca­tion, for a pre­cise posi­tion­ing, LSM appli­ca­tions and live cell Imag­ing
  • Rec­om­mend­ed for elec­tro­phys­i­o­log­i­cal exper­i­ments because no dis­turb­ing switch­ing puls­es are emit­ted
  • Sup­plied with 3 exchange­able base­plates with dif­fer­ent obser­va­tion open­ings: Petri dish­es, POC-Systems and a vari­ety of object slides can be observed
  • Suit­able for per­fu­sion appli­ca­tions
  • The tem­per­a­ture range depends on the cir­cu­lat­ing liq­uid and is reg­u­lat­ed at the cir­cu­la­tor
