Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) technology leader, Asylum Research, is introducing an enhanced Petri Dish Holder and Heater accessory for its MFP-3D AFMs. The Petri Dish 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 is desired. Most commercial Petri dishes are accommodated with diameters ranging from 30mm to 60mm and a selection of Petri dishes is included with the kit.

The dish is magnetically clamped down for sample exchange. Microscope slides can also be accommodated. Heating from ambient to 45°C is supported with 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 1cm diameter at the center of the dish.

The full diameter of the Petri dish is held to within 0.5°C. This new product complements Asylum’s growing suite of environmental control products for the MFP-3D AFM platform, which also includes the BioHeater™ with heating up to 80°C, and the Closed Fluid Cell with 10 inlet and outlet ports for exchange of liquid or gas media while imaging.
