The LTS420 hotstage has been optimised for isothermal analysis of larger samples where high speed heating and cooling and excellent thermal stability are required.
The LTS420 is an easy to use and very versatile heating and freezing stage. The stage consists of a large area temperature controlled element with a sensor embedded close to the surface for accurate temperature measurements in the range of < -195°C to 420°C (when used with LNP96 cooling pump).
The sample is easily mounted on a standard microscope slide in direct contact with the heating element and can be manipulated 15mm in both X and Y directions. The sample chamber is gas tight and has valves to allow atmospheric composition control. A humidity compatible version of the stage is also available as are a version with internal electrical connections and probes, and a stage for use with an inverted microscope.
