Okolab – Heating and Cooling Stage Top

Stage Top Incubator – water jacket

T range: [-5°C to 60°C]

Digital or Manual CO2/O2 control

Chambers available for any XY Stage (including upright)

The Water Jacket Incubator provides superior incubation stability above and below room temperature. Water is pumped from a water bath into the base plate and into the lid, which are both Water Jackets.Temperature is measured inside a reference Petri-dish and is controlled by circulating water from a water bath into the Water Jacket Chamber. The Temperature Controller reads the temperature in the reference well and updates the set point temperature of the water bath, ensuring a specimen temperature stability of ± 0.1°C.

Features

  • Temperature Range: from 10/15°C BELOW Room temperature (depending on chamber model) to 60°C
  • Temperature Accuracy: ± 0.1°C in sample feedback mode, ± 0.3°C in chamber feedback mode
  • Water circulation in the bottom and lid of the chamber
  • Inter changeable magnetic inserts allow to host Petri, Slides and MW Plates
  • Magnetic locks hold the Petri, the Slides and the MW Plates in the correct position inside the chamber
  • Perfusion holes for inlet and outlet of tubes

 

The Water Jacket Incubator provides superior incubation stability above and below room temperature by circulating water inside the base and lid of the water jacket chamber. Feedback is provided by sample temperature or by chamber temperature. Selection is done via OKO-TOUCH.

Okolab offers two Temperature controllers, according to the temperature range of interest.

The Bold Line Gas Controllers connect to the Temperature Controller via a cable-less connector and are operated through the same touch screen interface OKO-TOUCH.

CO2 and or O2 accuracy is ±0.1% with adjustable total output flow rate.

A humidity module based on a bubbling column is typically used with a Heating and Cooling System. When Humidity control with feedback is required, the Active Humidity Controller can be connected to the Bold Line Gas Controller.

Features

  • CO2 accuracy: 0.1% (see Controller page for more info)
  • O2 accuracy: 0.1% (see Controller page for more info)
  • Touch Screen Interface – OKO-TOUCH
  • Output Flow Rate: adjustable from OKO-TOUCH
  • Compatible with Active Humidity Controller
  • Programmable CO2 (and /or) O2 cycles
  • Compatible with SMART BOX for data logging and remote operation – Optional
  • Data Logging via OKOLAB Data Log Software – Optional
  • Compatible with: NIS Elements, MetaMorph, Micromanager

The Heating and Cooling Stage Top Incubator employes a bubbling column to humidify the gas prior to the inlet inlet in the stage top chamber.

The bubbling column is immersed in the water bath and a pre-heating coil ensures thermal equilibrium between the flowing gas and the water bath.

The tube connecting the bubbling column to the stage top chamber is isolated to prevent water condensation.

 

Features

  • Gas is humidified by means of a bubbling column immersed in the water bath and a pre-heating coil
  • Input (dry gas) is connected to the gas controller
  • Output (humid gas) is connected to the gas chamber

The system comprises:

  • Glass Bubbling Column (spare part code H101-BC)
  • Pre-heating coil

OKO-TOUCH is an intuitive and user-friendly touch screen interface. It connects to any one of the Bold Line Controllers, detects all equipment in the system and displays all functions supported by the equipment detected.

It allows to:

  • Turn all Bold Line Controllers on/off
  • Define set point values
  • Set flow rates gas controller
  • Define gas cycles of gas controller
  • Define temperature cycles of temperature controller
  • Select sample or chamber feedback mode
  • Select chamber model and plate adapter
  • Display all set points and measured parameters
  • Run self calibration procedures

 

Smart Box connects to the Bold Line Controller and provides the following features:

Features

  • Data Logging
  • Remote Operation of the incubator via Internets, Tablet or SmartPhone
  • Video Streaming server
  • Remote assistant
