Heating Stage 2000 for IX2-SP

Heating Stage 2000 for IX2-SP

This stage enables heat­ing of cell cul­ture sys­tems on the micros­cope. The object guide and other acces­sories can be attached and a great vari­ety of cul­ture ves­sels can be used.


  • The Heat­ing Stage replaces the stan­dard fixed stage and enables the heat­ing of objects on the microscope
  • The object guide and other acces­sories can be attached
  • All con­ven­tion­al­ly used cul­ti­va­tion ves­sels can be used
  • Solid design with a high ther­mal capac­i­ty and a high tem­per­a­ture stability
  • Rec­om­mend­ed for elec­tro­phys­i­o­log­i­cal exper­i­ments because no dis­turb­ing switch­ing puls­es are emitted
  • Oper­a­tion is indi­cat­ed by a green LED at the front
  • A self-resetting over-temperature switch ensures max­i­mum oper­a­tional safety
