system environment. The Coverglass Lid is made of 304 stainless steel, autoclaveable, and available with or without perfusion. This item and/ or the Heating Culture Dish Cover are nearly essential for multi-user facilities. Heated Lid The Bioptechs Delta T Heated Lid is a device which will provide a condensate free optical surface on the top of a Delta T Dish through which specimens can be perfused and trans-illuminated on an inverted microscope. It is reusable and powered by a 2.5 volt source from either a battery or the optional auxiliary power supply in the Delta T Controller. A CO2 port...
