Cooling/Heating Stage for IX2-SP

This stage enables the cool­ing and 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 Cooling/Heating Stage replaces the stan­dard fixed stage and enables the cool­ing and heat­ing of objects on the micro­scope
  • The object guide and oth­er acces­sories can be attached
  • All con­ven­tion­al­ly used cell cul­ture ves­sels can be used
  • Sol­id design with a high ther­mal capac­i­ty and a high tem­per­a­ture sta­bil­i­ty
  • The open­ing for the objec­tive is as small as pos­si­ble to opti­mize the heat trans­fer
  • Rec­om­mend­ed for elec­tro­phys­i­o­log­i­cal exper­i­ments because no dis­turb­ing switch­ing puls­es are emit­ted
