LTS420 Hot Stage Optimized for Isothermal Analysis

The LTS420 hot stage from Linkam is enhanced for isothermal analysis of bigger samples which need high-speed heating and cooling and exceptional thermal stability.

The LTS420 is a user-friendly, versatile heating and freezing stage. The stage comprises of a temperature controlled element of a large area having a sensor embedded near to the surface for precise temperature measurements ranging from -196 °C to 420 °C (when used with LNP96 cooling pump).

The sample has to be simply placed on a regular microscope slide directly in contact with the heating element and can be manipulated 15 mm in X and Y direction. The sample chamber is gas tight and includes gas valves to clean using an inert gas. A humidity compatible version is also available.

In addition, this stage comes with probes and internal electrical connections. Even an inverted microscope version is available.
