Hi Temperature Measurements with the Acorn Area

We are excited to introduce a high temperature option to the Acorn Area and Drop particle analyzers. This option uses resistive heaters to regulate sample temperature up to 80 degrees Celsius. User specified temperature profiles are possible. See the Press Release on this new feature in the News section of our website.
