With this stage-top incubation system, cell and tissue cultures can be observed under in vitro conditions. The small incubator offers a stable heating and a uniform heat distribution within the medium together with a Heating Insert. The heated glass warms up the incubation chamber from the top and is permeable to 90% of light in the visible wavelength range. Laser scanning microscopy and electrophysiological experiments can be carried out. Depending on the insert used, following cell culture vessels can be used:
Petri dishes and POC Cell Cultivation Systems, Lab-TekTM chambers, object slides, chamber slides and Multiwell plates.
The temperature of the cover and the body can be controlled separately with the TempController 2000-2.
For applications where gassing is required, the CO2-Controller or the CO2-O2-Controller are connected to the cover.
