Linkam inverted Peltier stages are used in cell biology labs all over the world in applications ranging from IVF and sperm motility to blood viability and low temperature cell preservation.
The PE100/I stage for Olympus inverted microscopes utilizes a Peltier device and has a temperature range of -5°C to 99°C. These heating and cooling stages are designed to fit into the table or replace the table of your inverted microscope. The stage is then flush with the surface of the table enabling the use of standard sample manipulators to be used. Like all Peltier stages, the PE100/I contains a small solid heat pump known as a Peltier device. This device operates from a DC current and heats or cools by simply reversing the flow of the electrical current. Heat is dissipated by water flowing through a cooling jacket. Note: heating and cooling limits are dependant on the temperature of the circulating water.
The planar design of the stage allows complete access to the sample and facilitates the use of Petri dishes, well plates and microscope slides.
