The final build of the Climate Chamber that fits around the microscope.

CREATING AN OPTIMAL TEAR CRYSTALLISATION ENVIRONMENT

THE PROCESS & CREATION OF THE DIY MICROSCOPE CLIMATE CHAMBER & CLIMATE CONTROL UNIT.

Example of the tear evaporation and crystallisation process.
Current Microscope Setup with the DIY scanning stage.
The original optional Incubator mentioned in the original manual as available accessory.

1.) The Climate Chamber:

Latest design of the Climate Control Unit that will be controlling the temperature and humidity within the Climate Chamber.
“Cross section” of the cooling unit; showing all the parts, eventually all transparent parts will be made of aluminum.
Future update to boost the cooling process, a Peltier of 20x20mm with a water cooling block on a microscopic slide holder.
“Cross section” of the Dehumidify unit; showing all the parts, eventually all transparent parts will be made of aluminum.
“Cross section” of the heating unit; showing all the parts, eventually all transparent parts will be made of aluminum.
Above you can see the microscope cover slip holder that is made out of aluminum, attached to it are two Aluminum Housed Resistors + NTC probe.

All 4 units placed together, without in-take hood, out- take unit and control box.
This image shows the top hood of the Climate Control Unit, above you can see the ⌀82mm air intake, together with 4 servo’s to control the air dampers. In this case the top hood will be made out of Plexiglas in stead of aluminium.
This image shows the bottom exhaust part together with the 120mm power fan and the outtake connector.
The electronic compartment box made out of aluminium, with a 9mm plywood board that can be taken out to inspect / change the electronics.
Latest design of the Climate Control Unit that will be controlling the temperature and humidity within the Climate Chamber. Rendered transparent to show the inner workings.
