Rapid Peltier-based temperature-controlled sample holders

Software-controlled for automated temperature dependent fluorescence

Peltier-based Heated/Cooled Cuvette Holder

For rapid control of the sample’s temperature in a HORIBA fluorometer sample compartment, choose the 1-position or 4-position Peltier-controlled thermostattable cuvette holder trays.

The Peltier device heats and cools the sample thermoelectrically and quickly, without overshooting the target the way a circulating refrigerated controller does. The temperature range is –15 °C to +105 °C. To prevent condensation of moisture on chilled cuvettes, an injection port for dry nitrogen gas is provided.

All software is included, along with a controller and stirring mechanism.

Perfect for automated temperature stepping experiments or ramping.

The Peltier device is mounted on an easily-exchanged sample tray consisting of a base and front panel, with utilities conveniently brought to the front panel. HORIBA provides a fully  integrated system with sophisticated software control.

These Peltier-based temperature-controlled cuvette holders are compatible with the HORIBA Fluorolog-QM, Nanolog®, FluoroMax® and Aqualog® spectrofluorometers.
