Objective Heater - Warmer Upgrade

A thin flexible polyimide heater for any microscope objective. Used with oil or water immersion optics. Built-in temperature sensor. Easy to attach and remove. Simply wrap the heater around objective and secure with included Velcro tape. The heater is usually attached to a cylindrical surface of the objective, closer to the sample. The controller stores two settings in its memory for different size objectives. Sample publications.
