Description & Specifications


Color Black
For Use With (Application) Micro observation and applications requiring physical access to cells or tissue, microinjection, electrostimulation, wounding, micromanipulation, mechanical probing, recording and stimulation
Product Type Delta T Culture Dish
Thickness (Metric) 0.15mm
Thickness (English) 0.005 in.

For micro-observation and applications requiring physical access to cells or tissue: microinjection, electrostimulation, wounding, micromanipulation, mechanical probing, recording, and stimulation

  • Accurate temperature control, uniform heat distribution, and high-numeric-aperture compatibility
  • Works in confocal applications; adapts to specimens from monolayered adherent cells to tissue preparations, with inverted, water-immersion, and upright microscopes
  • System passes ∽0.9w electrical charge through thin indium tin-oxide coating on underside of glass substrate where cells are grown, transferring heat through glass to cells
  • Thermal regulation via instantaneous analog control of a feedback loop
  • No peripheral heating: cells are unaffected by surface evaporation, heat is not lost to the atmosphere
  • After plating, cells are ready for incubation or time-lapse imaging
  • Controller has real-time temperature display (ambient to 50°C, accuracy ±0.1°C); compensates for surface evaporation
  • Alarmed protection circuit safeguards cells. Dimensions: 151/2L x 6W x 3 in. H (39.4 x 15.2 x 7.6cm). Operates on 100–240V 50/60Hz or 24V battery

Delta T Culture Dish options

  • Disposable polystyrene/glass dishes are available plain (when temperature control is not needed) or with electrically conductive, optically transparent coating and silver bus bars; 6mm depth optimizes access for microinjection and manipulation
  • Contain self heating ITO coating, which provides first surface heat transfer directly to cells when using Delta T System
  • Injection molded polystyrene sidewalls and lid, coverglass bottom
  • Highest quality German Desag 263, low alkaline coverglass for optimum resolution
  • O.D., 35mm, tapering to 23mm optical aperture
  • Glass thickness of 0.17mm
  • Available in clear and black; for fluorescence imaging, select black culture dishes
  • Numerous accessories specific to these dishes allow for specialized applications including - media perfusion, gas perfusion, sample positioning, heating and cooling
  • Optional stage adapters available to fit all major brands of microscopes, which custom stage adapters available
  • Optional culturing cylinders may be used to barricade cells or suspended specimens in a dish; or to restrict and concentrate growth and location of cells plated on coverslip without use of grease
