Holder and heater accessory
SANTA BARBARA, Calif., May 15, 2009 – Asylum Research has introduced an enhanced petri dish holder and heater accessory for its MFP-3D atomic force microscopes (AFMs). The heater is designed for studies of living and fixed cells and other biological studies where heating in either an open or sealed environment at physiologically relevant temperatures ranging from ambient to 45 °C is

The holder accommodates most commercial plastic and glass-bottom petri dishes with diameters ranging from 30 to 60 m, and a selection of petri dishes is included with the kit, which also includes a membrane that minimizes evaporation. The dish is magnetically clamped down for easy and fast sample exchange. Microscope slides also can be accommodated. Heating from ambient to 45 °C is supported with high accuracy and stability, and temperature data can be logged and saved with each acquired AFM image.

The optimized mechanical design maintains the temperature variation in the liquid to less than 0.1 °C over a 1-cm diameter at the center of the dish. The full diameter of the petri dish is held to within 0.5 °C.
