PM Series Magnetic Platforms

PM Series Magnetic Platforms

Warner magnetic platforms function as base for the Series 20 chambers and provide easy clamping to make a seal between the chamber and coverslip.

  • Allows small entry angles ideal for patch recordings
  • No screws needed to secure chamber to platform
  • Available for most Series 20 Open Bath Chambers
  • Magnetic stainless steel allows use of magnetic holders
  • Compatible with all series 20 stage adapters

Warner magnetic platforms function as a base for Series 20 chambers and provide clamping to make a seal between the chamber and coverslip. Platforms are machined from aluminum and finished with a black anodize. This provides excellent heat conductivity and minimizes stray light reflectance. Platform designs are optmimized to provide maximum heat transfer to the coverslip while affording excellent access for objectives.

Four magnets on each side of the platform are used to attach the hold-down clamps. Magnets are nickel plated, this coating allows for exceptional resistance from corrosion. Clamps consist of ferromagnetic stainless steel plates that allow the use of magnetic devices. No screws are needed for assembly, permitting rapid replacement of the chamber enen in a darkened room.

Resistive heating is included in all platform models. Thermal regulation is provided by Warner's TC-324C and TC-344C temperature controllers and a CC-28 cable interface. Heating of perfusate is achieved using our SH-27B or SF-28 In-line solution heaters.

Stage adapters are available for all major microscopes. Custom or modified stage adapters are also available. Call our Technical Support Department for details.

Information on the proper placement of the feedback resistor in the platform body can be found in the Support Documents Section of this page.
