The microscope enclosure creates a large volume around the microscope in which temperature is controlled by recirculating warm air. It is made of polycarbonate panels and encloses microscope stage, nosepiece and objectives. It doesn't affect focus stability. All electronics including EMCCDs, spinning disk confocal etc. are left outside of the enclosure avoiding exposure to 37°C.
The enclosure closely follows the microscope profile and is supported by posts resting on the vibration isolation table.

The H201-LG-DLS Gas Chamber connects to Bold Line Temperature, Gas and Humidity Controllers and allows to perform time lapse imaging using the Leica Digital Light Sheet on living samples by controlling Temperature, Humidity and Gas concentration.
The Gas Chamber fits into the Super Z Galvo stage and features a lid to accommodate the TwinFlect mirror device. The warm air circulating in the enclosure warms up the detection objectives Leica HC APO L 10x/0.3 W and Leica HC FLUOTAR L 25x/0.95 W.
Okolab Cage Incubator employs a Temperature Unit that generates warm air to raise the temperature inside the enclosure.
Superior accuracy is guaranteed by the interplay of four sensors: three for temperature and one for flow rate. The temperature sensors monitor temperature inside the enclosure, inside the Gas Micro-Environmental Chamber and inside the Air Heater. The flow rate sensor controls the rate at which warm air enters the enclosure and ensures smooth operation and fast heating. A proprietary smart algorithm determines the minimum flow rate necessary to maintain the controlled temperature at the set point value.
Okolab Cage Incubation System has both Enclosure (Chamber) Feedback mode as well as Sample Feedback mode as standard features. The end user can select the temperature sensor driving feedback to the controller.
Beautifully designed, simple to use and very compact.
OKO-TOUCH is all you need to operate the system.
The Bold Line Gas Controllers connect to the Temperature Controller via a cable-less connector and are operated through the same touch screen interface OKO-TOUCH.
CO2 and or O2 accuracy is ±0.1% with adjustable total output flow rate.
A vibration free humidity module is typically used with a Cage Incubation System. When Humidity control with feedback is required, the Active Humidity Controller can be connected to the Bold Line Gas Controller.
Use the best Humidifier on the market: ACTIVE HUMIDITY CONTROLLER
It connects to the Gas Controller and shows up in OKO-TOUCH
Oxygen control is our pride.

These gas mixers employ accurate floating ball flow meters to mix gas AIR and CO2 streams. The desired gas concentration is achieved by measuring the individual flow rated prior to mixing.
For Hypoxia or Hyperoxia applications, a third flow meter if added to measure N2 or O2 flow rate.
No feedback is present on gas concentration.
All you need is a single flow meter to regulate the flux
3GF-MIXER is a simple and cost effective solution also for these application.
Use AIR-PUMP to feed air into the Manual Gas Mixers
The Cage Incubator is equipped with a vibration-free gas humidifier which employes a semi-permeable membrane. Humidification occurs without bubbling to ensure vibration-free operation.
A water trap is located between the humidifier and the gas chamber preventing any water droplet from accidentally reaching the sample.
OKO-TOUCH is an intuitive and user-friendly touch screen interface. It connects to any one of the Bold Line Controllers, detects all equipment in the system and displays all functions supported by the equipment detected.
Smart Box connects to the Bold Line Controller and provides the following features:
