The Delta T™ Dishes have a number 1.5 thickness, German, Desag 263 glass coverslip bonded to the bottom of the dish for high N.A. applications and are also available with 0.5mm thick glass for low N.A. applications. They have an electrically conductive, optically transparent, ITO coating on the bottom surface of the dish that when connected to a Bioptechs Delta T Controller heats the contents of the dish. Delta T™ dishes have 35mm O.D. and a 23mm central aperture. The peripheral region of the dish is tapered to reduce the dead-volume and the depth of the dish is 6mm to allow better access for micro-injection and micro-manipulation. The dishes are a hybrid of polystyrene plastic and Desag 263 glass. The outer structure of the dish is available in opaque black or clear and come with a lid of the same color as the dish. The dishes are also available in a plain uncoated, unheated version, called TPG (Temperature Plain Glass).
