Bioptechs, Inc. Delta T Culture Dish System is designed
to simulate host conditions on the stage of your microscope
and provide an optimal optical environment for microscopy.
This two-step system allows you to plate your cells
and observe them without having to transfer them to
another structure. The system components are, the
Controller, Stage Adapter, and Dishes. Accessories
for Tissue Slice, Brain Slice, and other specimens
intelligent feedback loop passes an electrical current
through a thin film coating on the underside surface
of the glass substrate on which the cells are grown.
Heat is applied directly to the cells without the
inefficiencies associated with peripheral heating
by traditional culture dish warmers. Bioptechs exclusively
offers opaque culture dishes which eliminates the
unwanted ambient light background for fluorescence
controller features a real-time temperature display
and fast learning curve to compensate for cooling
due to surface evaporation while responding to temperature
changes due to perfusion. There is also an alarmed
protection circuit to safeguard the cells and an internal
reference for the user adjustable calibration. The
standard controller has a temperature range of ambient
to 50 degrees C. Extended ranges are available upon
T dishes have 35mm O.D. and a 23mm central aperture.
The peripheral region of the dish is tapered to reduce
the dead-volume and the height of the dish is 6mm
to allow better access for micro-injection and micromanipulation.
The dishes are a hybrid of polystyrene plastic and
Desag 263 glass. The outer structure of the dish is
available in opaque black or clear and come with a
clear 0.5mm or no.1.5 glass coverslip bottom bonded
to it. The dishes are also available in a plain
glass unheated version.
