29 Gauge Needle Microprobe
Fast-response 29 gauge needle probe, (needle length is 1cm) for instant readings in tissue, semisolids, liquids. Also for very small specimens, powders and materials. Needle tip is sealed to ensure only stainless steel contacts specimen. Max. temp. 200°C. 5 ft. lead. Smallest microprobes give fastest reading. Short probes are easier to insert and last longer. Type #'s indicate needle gauge and needle length in cm.
Sizes Available (ga/cm.):
MT-29/1, MT-29/2, MT-29/3, MT-29/5
MT-26/2, MT-26/4, MT-26/6
MT-23/3, MT-23/5, MT-23/8
MT-4 - Similar to MT-29/1 but has blunt tip. Good for instant skin and surface temperatures, liquids. Time constant .025 secs. Not isolated.
ICT-4 - For use on integrated circuits and other micro specimens. 0.013" dia. straight stainless steel shaft; slightly protruding sensor bead to facilitate temperature probing. 5" tubular handle fits micro- manipulators. Max. Intermittent Temp. 200°C, continuous use 100°C, Time constant 0.25 secs. 5 ft. lead. Not Isolated.
All needle probes are non-isolated. Isolated versions of 23 ga. and larger needles are available for special order.
Autoclavable version of any needle probe can be made as a custom order. Please call to request HT autoclavable version.
Time Constant is defined as the time required to reach 63% of final temperature in liquid. An accurate reading is obtained when the reading stops changing, typically 5-10 time constants.
Maximum Temperature refers to intermittent use of probe. When probe is used for continuous measurements, maximum temperature should be reduced by 25% unless specified.
