Aluminum Bottom Platforms are machined from aluminum and are finished with a black anodize. These come with excellent heat conductivity as well as reduced stray light reflectance. The platform have assorted models that permit simple removal of the enclosure to change its cover-slip. The platform employs a one piece clamp barred with several number of screws. Provided platforms can be ordered plain as well as with resistive heaters. The product come with anodized aluminum platforms that render clamping between the chambers and their bottom glass cover-slips so as to produce a water tight seal. Black anodized aluminum supplies optimal heat conductivity as well as low-level stray light reflectance. The Aluminum Bottom Platforms come with small hole drilled along platform boundary for arrangement of T1 feedback control thermistor.
