heating and cooling stage for microscopy

MicrOptik’s MTS120i stages are developed for a temperature range from -20°C to 120°С. The MTS120i stages supply with high precision MTDC600 programmable temperature controller. MTDC600 temperature controller can be operated by Software or Manually. It makes the system more adaptive and flexible. To provide a stable temperature below 0°C MC-5L water chiller is provided.

heating and cooling stage for microscopy

MicrOptik’s Thermal Stage MTS120i provides cooling up to -20°C without liquid Nitrogen cooling system or refrigerated circulators. This feature makes system more simple and cost effective. Furthermore the usage of Thermoelectric Cooling Technology makes MTS120i as a convenient system for continuously usage during long experiments. The compact and simple design allows the stage to be positioned on any XY table, allowing the user to carry out all sorts of experiments in the most convenient manner.
