VAHEAT - Microscope Temperature Control
VAHEAT is here! Temperature control for high-resolution microscopes. Simple, precise and localized temperature control.
VAHEAT changes how you do temperature control on your microscope. The VAHEAT contains an easy to use controller, sample heating stage that is only the size of a microscope slide. No modifications of your microscope are necessary!
Your sample is prepared on a smart substrate and optional reservoir (both disposable) that is equipped with a transparent heating element and a precise temperature probe. Heating rates of up to 100 °C/s enable new types of experiments while ensuring unprecedented temperature stabilization.
VAHEAT locally controls your sample temperature even when working with immersion medium. Avoid excessive heating of the objective or other optical components. Beneﬁt from fast and precise temperature feedback.
Note: purchase of the VAHEAT also required substrates with or without PDMS reservoirs for liquids separately, or as a set (see below).
