P and PH Series 20 Platforms

P and PH Series 20 Platforms

Anodized aluminum platforms provide clamping between our Series 20 chambers and their bottom glass coverslips to create a water tight seal.

  • Black anodized aluminum provides good heat conductivity and low stray light reflectance
  • A small hole drilled along platform edge for placement of T1 feedback control thermistor
  • Each Series 20 Platform is compatible with all Series 20 Microscope Stage Adapters
  • Platforms without heating elements can be upgraded later

The Series 20 Platforms function as a base for the Series 20 Imaging and Recording Chambers and provides the clamping needed to make a seal between a chamber and its bottom glass coverslip.

Platforms are machined from aluminum and finished with a black anodize. This provides excellent heat conductivity and minimizes stray light reflectance. Sliding clamps used on most models permit easy removal of the chamber to change its coverslip. The P-2 Platform uses a one piece clamp secured with 4 screws, while all other models use two clamps with 2 screws each (i.e. 4 total).

Platforms can be ordered plain or with resistive heaters. Heater platforms have a pair of 10 ohm resistive elements attached. Control of platform heating is provided by one of our temperature controllers (e.g., TC-324B, TC-344B, CL-100 or CL-200). Connection to the power source can be made using one of our cable assemblies (e.g. CC-28 or CC-15).

NOTE: Warner Instrument Series P or PH platforms are designed to fit the Zeiss 76x26 microscope slide frame (#471719) without the use of a stage adapter. Series PM platforms require a stage adapter. In general, all heater platforms require an insulating material between the platform and frame.
