The Bioptechs' Thermal Isolator is made of a material having low thermal conductivity for mounting objectives to the nosepiece of a microscope, which provides a gas trap to enclose the exposed optical elements from condensation. It is necessary to provide a supply of dry air or gas into the base of the Thermal Isolator. The Thermal Isolator will add 9mm to the height of the objective. Therefore, it is usually necessary to elevate the stage by the same amount. Due to the wide variety of stages available, Bioptechs does not provide spacers for stage mounts. When the height of a microscope stage is adjusted by 9mm to accommodate the addition of a Thermal Spacer to one of the objectives, it is often convenient to adjust the height of the other objectives on the turret by the same amount. The Objective Spacer functions to add 9mms of height to an objective.
Note: When ordering Objective Thermal Isolators you must specify the thread type.
• RMS = 0.8" x 36 TPI
(approximately 20 mm diameter)
• 25mm x 0.75 mm/thread
(approximately 1" diameter)
