Heating Stages for Live Cell Imaging

The independently controlled, heated glass lid of the Nanolive-ibidi Heating & Incubation System solves the problem of condensation in live cell imaging.

By heating the lid to a temperature higher than the plate, a vertical temperature gradient is created. This gradient and an active humidity control prevent the formation of condensation on the lid of the Petri dish. The temperature at the cells’ site is maintained at a constant 37 °C.

Components of the Nanolive-ibidi Heating System

Nanolive-ibidi Temperature Controller

  • Provides excellent temperature stability within the incubation chamber
  • Four control channels allow to connect a heated plate, a heated lid, and two additional heated components (e.g., an objective heater)

Technical Features:

  • Temperature stability: ± 0.05 °C
  • Temperature uniformity across the insert: ± 0.5 °C
  • Temperature range: Room temperature - 45 °C
  • Control channels: 4
  • TempControl software for remote control and data recording included
  • External temperature sensor included
  • Adjustable alarm function included
  • Analog output for extreme noise reduction optional

Heated Plate in a Multi-well Format for 1 Chamber

  • To be used with the Nanolive 3D Cell Explorer
  • Adaptable to all types of microscopy chambers, such as µ-Slides and µ-Dishes plus non-ibidi formats

Heated Glass Lid, Universal Fit, for Use with CO2, O2, and Humidity

  • For use with CO2, O2, and humidity to provide a complete environmental chamber
  • Independently controlled glass lid, warmed to 40 °C, prevents the formation of condensed water on the lid of the microscopy chamber or plate
  • No scattering of light or shadow formation

Heating Inserts

Gas Mixer for the Incubation Unit

The heated lid also comes with a gas inlet. The Nanolive-ibidi Gas Incubation System upgrades the Nanolive-ibidi Heating System to a complete stage top incubator for all live cell imaging applications on the 3D Cell Explorer.

The Nanolive-ibidi Gas Incubation System is suitable for various experimental conditions (e.g., pH or hypoxia). It is available in two versions: Gas Mixer for CO2, Gas Mixer for CO2 and O2.
