A fast-response 1 cm long 29 gauge needle thermocouple probe, which can be used for measuring temperatures up to 200°C in tissues, semi-solids and liquids. It is ideal for very small specimens because of it's size and sealed needle tip, which ensures that only the stainless steel is in contact with the specimen. This probe has a 1.5 m (5 ft) lead. Additionally, the version of this probe allows it to be autoclavable at 135°C. The thermocouple probe can be used with the T-type Pod or Thermometer for T-type Thermocouples.
