Series 20 Stage Adapters
Stage Adapters are designed to allow the mounting of Warner imaging and recording products onto a microscope. We have a wide variety of stage adapters to fit most commonly used microscope stages including stock stages from Nikon, Olympus, Zeiss, and Leica. We also have stage adapters compatible with 3rd party stages from Burleigh, Prior & Ludl, and Marzhauser to name a few. Adapters are machined from high quality Delrin which provides good thermal isolation from the microscope stage. All platforms rest upon a 38 mm lip which surrounds the central aperture. Platforms and bases are secured using two plastic button clamps.
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 × 230 Specimen Stage. However, if a heater platform is used, the metal slide frame is not recommended since it will act as a thermal heat sink. Use stage adapter SA-20LZ for this heating application.
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.
