TS62 Microscope Thermal Stage
Instec's TS62 is a Thermo Electric Cooler (Peltier) based thermal stage that can cool down to -30°C without using liquid nitrogen or a circulation chiller. This is very convenient for performing long duration experiments at cold temperatures. It also simplifies the system set up and reduces operating costs.
