Mettler Toledo Hotstage Microscope (FP90 and FP84), Studio Capture Software, card, camera, pc and printer. Hot-stage microscopy is a powerful tool that is widely used for the visual characterization of all kinds of thermal transitions. The possibility of directly observing morphological changes in a sample as it is heated or cooled is of enormous value. Changes in the shape, structure and color of crystals are seen as well as their size and number. The technique allows phase transitions to be characterized and provides information on expansion and shrinkage behavior.
