Unrivalled accuracy and control of temperature

The BCS196 has been continually modified over the last 20 years as a result of feedback from the world's leading cryobiologists.

 

The sample can be easily moved in both X and Y directions using the precision ground stainless steel manipulators, enabling the user to follow ice crystal growth across the sample. The seeding point on the side of the cooling element can be used to seed ice crystal growth into the sample.

 

Unrivalled accuracy and control of temperature enable the user to characterise low temperature sample morphology to better than 0.1°C and hold a stability of 0.001°C. The response time to a 'Hold' or 'Limit' command where the temperature is stable to 0.1°C is only 0.1 seconds at 30°C/min.

 

The rate of cooling affects ice crystal size and extremely fast cooling completely changes ice structure. The BCS196 can be modified with a quench cooling feature that enables you to push the sample from an isolated platform onto the pre-cooled silver block and achieve cooling rates approaching 5000°C/min.
