This peltier controlled system provides a turnkey solution for unrivalled temperature stability and control within a smaller temperature range than the LTS420 based Analysa systems.
Although the LTS120 stage has a narrower range in temperature, the system does not require liquid nitrogen to cool and can reach temperatures as low as -40°C using just circulated cooling water* to achieve significant delta T values.
The LTS120 sample chamber is gas tight and features gas valves to enable purging with inert gas or control of humidity.
The stage consists of a large area temperature controlled element with a platinum resistor sensor embedded close to the surface for accurate temperature measurements. The sample is simply mounted on a standard microscope slide in direct contact with the polished heating element and can be manipulated 15mm in X and Y direction.
To minimise the temperature gradient across the sample, the light aperture in the block is only 2.5mmØ.
The new PE95-LinkPad temperature controller with LCD touch screen control is used to quickly program a temperature profile by simply tapping the onscreen controls.
The intuitive LINK temperature control software comes as part of the system and enables full PC programming of the temperature.
The system comes as a simple turn key solution easily operated with little or no experience with temperature controlled stages.
There are stage clamps available to attach the stage to the substage of the microscope or use the Linkam Imaging station to ensure even greater sample access and free up your research microscope for other microscope based applications where the Analysa Peltier is not required.
*(requires circulating water at 5°C to reach -40°C . -25°C is possible when using ECP supplied with the system)
