The heater system is fully compatible with JPK‘s range of NanoWizard AFM and CellHesion systems. This means all the standard imaging and measurement techniques may be applied at temperatures up to 60˚C with 0.1˚C precision. These include fluorescence, brightfield, phase contrast and DIC, AFM imaging and cell mechanics study. The system also offers perfusion control employing standard syringe pumps and gas flow of carbon dioxide possible for long term cell studies. Glass bottomed dishes are important for high numerical aperture fluorescence experiments such as confocal laser scanning used in combination with AFM.
