TS102G/V Thermal Gas/Vacuum-Tight Stage
Instec’s TS102 series thermoelectric (Peltier) based thermal vacuum and gas-tight stages provide cooling to -40°C without using liquid nitrogen or a recirculating chiller. This simplifies the system set up, reduces operating costs, and makes it a convenient choice for performing long duration experiments at low temperatures. The TS102V with vacuum chamber capability is ideal for freeze drying samples under a microscope. The TS102G is a lower cost option for controlling the atmosphere when vacuum is not required.
• Programmable precision temperature from -40°C to 120°C Peltier based thermal stage with sealed vacuum or gas-tight sample chamber
• Optional two electric feedthroughs for sample probing
• Controlled fast heating and cooling rate
• Removable and exchangeable windows
• Integrated aperture window defrost system
• Inner cover for improved sample temperature uniformity
• Vertical and horizontal mounting
