While designed for use with Prior's Nanoscan Z stage, this lightweight and efficient temperature comtrol apparatus can be used on any microscope stage. When used on the Nanoscan Z, the TB-3 CCD does not require a stage adapter and stage adapters are available for non-Nanoscan Z applications.

Operation of the TB-3 CCD requires Warner's low noise CL-100 or CL-200A temperature controller and associated heat exchanger (LCS-1, Thermal Cooling Module). When used in concert, these three components provide precise temperature control of the media from 5-50C. An integral water jacket is used to remove excess heat from the internal Peltier device.

Magnetic clamps hold cell culture dishes and quick change imaging chambers securely in place. Magnetic stainless steel along the perimeter of the platform allows for the use of magnetic suction and perfusion tube holders.

The TB-3 CCD is supplied with a 35 mm adapter ring kit, set of six, three sets of magnetic clamps, one humidifying cover, one TA-29 bead thermistor, one MAG-3 magnetic holder for wires, four M-2 x 10 mm mounting screws for the Prior stage, 20 feet of 1/8' ID x 1/4' OD soft tubing, 50 feet of 1/16'

Optional magnetic holders for perfusion and suction tubes allow solution exchange in the dish or chamber. While designed to fit the NanoScanZ stage, adapters are available for other major microscope stages.
