Warner Instruments' (Hamden, CT) QE-1HC Quick Exchange Heated/Cooled Microscope Platform is designed to work with the Warner RC-40 quick change imaging chambers and all 35 mm cell culture dishes. Its open design promises easy access to cells while magnetic clamps hold the cell culture dishes and imaging chamber securely in place.
The magnetic stainless steel lining the perimeter of the platform allows for use of magnetic suction and perfusion tube holders, which are included. To achieve precise temperature control from 5 to 50 degrees C, Warner recommends use of the QE-1HC in conjunction with its CL-100 Temperature Controller and TCM-1 Temperature Cooling Module Stage adaptors. These enable the Quick Exchange Incubator to accommodate all major microscope stages.
