Temperature and environmental control from -40°C to 120°C



The LTS120 Peltier system includes an easy to use temperature control microscope
stage that uses a 40mm x 40mm element to control the temperature of your sample
which is mounted on a regular microscope slide and can be moved 15mm in both
X and Y directions.

The sample area is easily accessed by a large swing out lid. Simply place your sample
in the stage and set up a temperature control profile either using the touch screen
LCD display of the T96 Peltier controller or add LINK software to record the dataplot
of the experiment. Add the LINK image capture option to save a gallery of time lapse
images with your temperature data.

Sample temperature can be controlled from 0.1°C to 30°C/min in the range of -25°C*
to 120°C using the supplied water circulator. For temperatures down to -40°C add a

The stage body has gas valves to enable gas purging of the sample environment.

The LTS120E system has electrical connectors inside the sample chamber to enable
electrical measurements to be made on the sample while varying sample temperature.
