Digital microscopes utilize CCD or CMOS sensor-based cameras to capture high resolution images of microstructures. A thermal solution is required to remove waste heat and maintain very precise temperature control of imaging sensors. Thermoelectric chillers in combination with thermoelectric coolers minimize thermal noise in imaging sensors to achieve maximum image resolution.
One critical element of today’s diagnostic equipment is its cooling system. The cooling system prevents overheating, which can cause equipment to malfunction. Additionally, cooling solutions help maintain thermal stability of lab instrumentation, which is necessary for high-quality results. Considering the importance of medical imaging and diagnostic tests to monitor and maintain patients’ health, the equipment and the lab must be thermally maintained to ensure equipment consistently meets stated performance expectations.
