35mm CO2 Baseplate for Oil & Air Objective

Wednesday 12th March 2014

Traditionally inverted microscopes are fitted with long working distance objectives so the lens never comes into contact with the specimen Petri Dish. More and more Researchers are now using high NA oil objectives during their live cell time lapse experiments. This means that the petri dishes need to be held firmer to allow for the upward force created by the contact of the objective through the oil film.

Multi point observations exacerbate the issue.

A new workhead is now available which allows the user to use either oil or air objectives whilst maintaining the 5% humidified CO2 atmosphere necessary for pH control.
