The Glass side of the Metal Glass T Plate creates a warm and optically transparent surface perfectly flush with the microscope stage. It employes Indium Tin Oxide (ITO) coating to obtain uniform heating throughout the glass surface and a surface sensor to ensure the highest accuracy on temperature reading. The glass is chemically strengthened and protected by a rigid aluminum frame.

The metal side of the Metal Glass T Plate features a trimmed 24 mm diameter observation opening for imaging with oil immersion lenses.

The metal and glass sides have independet temperture sensors for independent temperature control of each side.

The plate is wired and must be connected to either a Bold Line Controller or a Basic Controller.


  • Flush with stages with k-frame insert (160x110mm), compatible with the following XY stage: Marzhauser (all models), Ludl (all models), ASI (all models, including z-piezo), Prior H107 and H117, Leica (k-frame), Zeiss (k-frame), Olympus (k-frame)
  • Temperature range: from ambient to 60°C
  • Accuracy on specimen: ±0.3°C
  • ITO glass side thickness: 0.5 mm, chemical glass strengthening ensures highest resistance
  • Easy plate replacement, if necessary
  • Flat respect to the rest of the XY stage
