Quick Exchange Heated Platform with Perfusion (QE-2)
The Warner QE-2 Quick Exchange Platform is a versatile base for many popular 50 and 60 mm glass bottom and plastic dishes. The platform is at home on both upright and inverted microscopes and includes resistive heating elements. The base has a 36 mm diameter aperture.
- Open design for easy cell access
- Removable perfusion and suction tube holders
- Designed for 50 and 60 mm dishes
- Adapters for Willco Wells, Corning, Nunc, and Falcon dishes
- Magnetic stainless steel allows use of magnetic holders
Magnetic stainless steel along the perimeter of the QE-2 permits the use of Warner's MCK-1 Magnetic Clamp Kit, which includes a variety of holding tools. Magnetic holders for perfusion and suction tubes allow perfusion in the dishes. Suction and perfusion tube holders are slotted and allow easy adjustment of the vertical position (for setting the bath height). A specially designed suction tube eliminates tidal action and fluid flutter, making aspiration very quiet and even.
Resistive heating of the QE-2 is provided by means of our TC- 324B / TC-344B temperature controllers and a CC-28 cable. Heating of perfusate is achieved using our SH-27B or SF-28 In-line solution heaters.
Adapter rings for Corning, Falcon, Nunc and Willco 50 mm dishes are supplied to ensure a close fit in the QE-2. The following tissue culture dishes are supported, Corning p/n 25060 (60 x 15mm), Falcon p/n 351006 (50 x 9mm), Nunk p/n 150326 (60 x 15mm), and Willco D5030 and D5040.
Stage adapters are available for all major microscopes. The QE-2 uses the Series 30 stage adapters. Custom or modified stage adapters are also available. Call our Technical Support Department for details.
