Description/Usage: To preserve the characteristics of cells observed under the microscope these cells must be kept under optimal and controlled conditions, i.e. temperature, CO2 level (5%) and humidity must be controlled and maintained. Therefore, special incubation chamber together with control units must be mounted on the platform of the microscope, adjusted to the microscope type. Incubation chamber must enable optimal growing milieu for the cells, on the other hand it must allow the operator to access the sample as well as to perform all the necessary manipulation with the microscope. Temperature control is achieved with warm, filtered air, circulating from the separated heater unit into the acrylic enclosure where it is continuously circulated.
