Stage Adapters are designed to allow the mounting of Warner imaging and recording products onto a microscope.
We have a wide range of adapters to fit microscope stages from Nikon, Olympus, Zeiss, and Leica. We also have adapters compatible with 3rd party stages from Burleigh, Prior & Ludl, Marzhauser, and others. Finally, we have stage adapters designed to fit into a standard multiwell stage insert. All of our stage adapters are available for Warner Series 20 and Series 30 components.
Adapters machined from 6061 aluminum provide an enhanced degree of flatness, making them ideal for high NA microscopy. Adapters machined from Black Delrin® provide good thermal isolation from the microscope stage.
All platforms (e.g., Series 20, Series 30), the QE-1 and the DH-35, DH-35iL, and DH-40iL microincubators rest upon a 38 mm lip which surrounds the central opening. Platforms and bases are secured using two plastic button clamps.
Series 20 and Series 30 Stage Adapters each perform exactly the same role with the difference between the two being the size of the internal cutout. Specifically, a Series 30 stage adapter has a larger ID to accommodate the larger diameter Series 30 components. The OD of any similarly named stage adapters remains the same.
Note to Zeiss Axiovert users: Series 20 Platforms fit directly into the Zeiss slide frame (Zeiss p/n 471719) which mounts on the Zeiss 211 x 230 Specimen Stage.
Selecting a Stage Adapter
Consult the table below to identify stage adapters compatible with your microscope stage. Generally speaking, the table lists dimensions that should match the cutout in your microscope stage. Illustrations for the most common stage adapters, along with their dimensions, are also presented below and also in the Product Specs window above.
If your stage is not listed, or if you have questions on adapter compatibility, please contact our technical staff. Custom or modified versions are available.
Stage Adapter Lookup Table
The table below lists stage adapters known to be compatible with the most common microscope stages. However, since each microscope can support many stages, you should compare the adapter dimensions to the stage cutout before ordering.
