Finally, there's temperature control for the bilayer!
The new BLM-TC from Warner Instruments uses Peltier technology to cool, heat or thermocycle a planar lipid bilayer membrane.
Cools to 5 °C
Heats to 50 °C
Heats and cools at 3 °C/min.
Stable to 0.2 °C
The BLM-TC from Warner Instruments uses Peltier technology to reliably cool, heat, or thermocycle a planar bilayer membrane.
The tight and reproducible temperature control provided by this unique device can facilitate the measurement of single channel events at physiologic temperatures, or at any temperature between 5 and 50 °C.
The BLM-TC charts temperature at an average rate of 3 °C/min when transitioning between 40 °C to 10 °C. More importantly, this system can maintain the temperature to within 0.2 °C of the set temperature.
