extension arm and excellent working distance
objectives, the SurgioScope provides convenient
movement and maneuverability necessary for
accurate positioning. These important features,
together with a high quality optical system,
provide sharp image contrast and enhanced
large field of vision. The SurgioScope comes
fully equipped with a foot-controlled motorized
focusing system, normally only found in more
expensive surgical microscopes. A unique dual
lamp housing enables safe and rapid changing
of the lamp during an operation, without
the need to power down. The optional video
port on the “T” version permits operational
procedures to be monitored or recorded
simultaneously using a video recorder and a

PZMTIII-CCTV
(NTSC format)
WPI’s third-generation stereomicroscope, PZMIII, is an
ideal tool for tissue dissection, cell injection, specimen
manipulation, electrode inspection, and many other
applications that require a magnified, stereo viewing and
ample working distance. It offers the leading brand’s quality
and performance at an affordable price. Advanced optics
provide the sharpest image that can only be found among
the best of this class. It is superior to many stereomicroscopes
costing almost twice as much. Zooming is achieved by
a spring-loaded nub that is smooth and effortless. The
compact size and light weight make it more stable and easily
manipulated on the boom stand. A specially designed photo/
video module can easily upgrade the binocular PZMIII to a
trinocular microscope at any time for photo, video, or digital
imaging. In addition, an extensive list of optional accessories
is available that can make the PZMIII suitable for almost any
bio-research applications requiring a stereomicroscope. See
next page for options.

Precision Heater Controller
Smart, electrically quiet air heater for live cell
imaging systems and custom incubators
Maintenance of the desired
temperature set-point can
now be achieved through the
use of a precision, shielded
temperature probe coupled to
a peripheral Air-Therm heating
unit.
Glass Bottom Dishes: For high numerical aperture (NA) live-cell
imaging, cells must be plated on glass (e.g., WPI’s FluoroDish Glass
Bottom Dishes, spotting 0.17 mm glass thickness) or standard cover slips.
Since cover slips inherit other problems associated with sterility and
accidental damage to expensive microscope condensers, WPI designed
new and improved glass bottom dishes (35 mm x 10 mm or 35 mm X
22 mm) that are not cytotoxic. A special adhesive in conjunction with an
advanced dish design makes the FluoroDish the only non-cytotoxic glass
dish in the world. (See page 210.) This means that cells can actually be

cultured for 4 to 5 days in the same dish and then carry the complete
cell culture with media from the incubator directly into the (Air-Therm
controlled) recording chamber. This is a comfort level that hitherto was
unattainable by scientists and clinical researchers since cells will have
to be transported from the culture dishes on to cover slips just prior to
imagery or attaching patch electrodes.
Chamber: The most problematic aspect of any live cell imaging
procedure or patch clamp approach is the thermal drift of high
magnification lenses caused by temperature fluctuations in the
microscope's environment. It is necessary to constantly readjust the focus
during image acquisition due to this thermal-drift, introducing artifacts
during quantitative microscopy due to the photo-bleaching that occurs
during refocusing. The optimal solution to this problem is to use WPI’s AirTherm temperature controller connected to a Plexiglas or acrylic chamber
that encloses the entire imaging area (or at least the objectives and the
stage). Using such a chamber will result in highly stable temperature
control and minimal thermal drift.

Precision: Noise is a major
concern in any experimental
application. WPI's Air-Therm™
is electrically quiet as well
as acoustically quiet). Since
the Air-Therm can be placed
away from the incubator,
any residual electrical and
vibrational interference
from the heater is virtually
eliminated. Accuracy of ±0.1°C
can be routinely maintained at
the sample site (using a fully
programmable differential
algorithm to automatically
adjust the temperature on
the Air-Therm unit). AirTherm maintains a uniform
temperature across the
microscope stage (allowing for
uniform heating of multiwell
dishes). These tight tolerances
result in minimal focal drift
once sample/incubator equilibrium has been achieved.

USBCAM100
This high performance camera incorporates a half-inch 2048×1536
CMOS image sensor (3.1 Megapixels) capable of operating up to 12
frames per second (fps) with full resolution and at near video quality
(27 fps) at XGA (1024×768) resolution. That is nearly three times faster
than a CCD. By combining the speed of this camera and a proprietary
driver with Twain for Windows XP and Vista, you get real-time imaging.
That means no offline processing. Using USB 2.0 connectivity to transfer
images to a computer, the simple plug-and-play software allows the
resolution to be easily modified.
The USBCAM100 includes XLICap software that features:
lSimple layout with toolbar

WPI’s FluoroDish™ tissue culture dishes
are now available in a larger range of sizes
and coatings. These polycarbonate dishes
provide exceptional imaging quality for many
applications requiring the use of inverted
microscopes such as high resolution image
analysis, microinjection and electrophysical
recording of fluorescent-tagged cells. Taking
advantage of WPI’s extensive experience
with low toxicity adhesives, FluoroDish uses a
specially formulated adhesive that is optically
clear, durable and with extremely low toxicity.
Tests by an independent laboratory have shown
that the 96-hour surviving rate of embryos is
100% when kept in FluoroDish, substantially
better than some other brands. The bottom
glass has superior UV transmission (30%
transmission at 300 nm, compared to less
than 7% for the most popular German glass).
Stringent quality control ensures that glass
thickness stays within the 0.17 ±0.01 mm
range.
brighter images for fluorescence and higher
resolution in Image Analysis. The glass bottom
permits the use of immersion objectives with
medium such as water, glycerin or oil for the
highest magnification possible. To optimize
heat-exchange, WPI’s glass-bottom dish is
designed to be flush (flat) with the microscope
stage or heating unit, therefore eliminating the
air gap that exists with modified plastic dishes
in which a glass cover slip has been inserted.
Three different sizes of FluoroDish are offered,
one type of 50 mm diameter dish and two
types of 35 mm diameter dishes. An inner well
is created within the dish by the glass bottom
and the tissue culture grade polystyrene which
forms the sides of the dish. All WPI dishes have
the advantages of low toxicity and good UV
transmission bottom glass. They are individually
packed and gamma sterilized.
The 35 mm dish has outside dimensions
similar to that of a Corning 35 mm dish
and has ø23.5 mm glass window (FD35)
or ø10 mm glass window (FD3510). Most
heaters and perfusion adapters designed
for the Corning 35 mm dish will also fit this
H
dish. The 23.5 mm glass window dish is
available uncoated, poly-D-lysine-coated, or
collagen-coated. Certain types of cell lines
Conventional plastic dishes and chambers
limit the utility of the inverted scope for many
applications because the thick plastic bottom
requires a long working distance objective
available only in lower magnifications. Each WPI
dish has a flat (0.17 mm thick) optical quality
glass bottom, allowing the use of a much
shorter objective working

(e.g., PC3 and HEK) adhere well to the uncoated
glass bottom dish. The poly-D-lysine coating
has been reported to improve the adhesion
of neuron cells, and type I rat tail collagen
has been reported to improve the adhesion of
muscle cells. The users can also apply to the
uncoated dish any special coating that is best
for their cell line.
The 10 mm glass window dish (FD3510) has
low sidewall for easy microelectrode access and
low solution volume. The low microelectrode
access angle is the lowest among all of 35 mm
dishes on the market (very close that of a 50
mm dish). The dish needs only 100 ~ 200 mL
to cover the bottom well, an important feature
when using expensive drugs and chemicals.
The 50 mm dish (FD50) has a large growth
area (35 mm well diameter), a low access
angle for microelectrodes, and grips for easy
handling.

These cover slips made of German glass
can be used for growing and culturing
cells that normally have poor adhesion to
plastic surfaces. They are small enough
to be placed in the micro plate or other
cell culture devices. The 5 mm size will
fit inside the 96-well culture plate and
leave enough room to pick it up from the
bottom of the well with forceps. The 8 mm
size fits inside the 24-well plates.
