26 Gauge Needle Microprobe
Fast-response 26 gauge needle probe, (needle length is 6 cm) 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.
