Prior Scientific introduced the H117IX3 flat top stage for the Olympus IX3 microscope range. While the H117IX3 is ideal for all high precision biomedical and material science scanning operations, specific attention was given to designing the H117IX3 to assist the researcher who is doing prolonged live cell studies.
Mini-MAG (MMG) precision linear positioning stages from Dover are available with a complete and optimized controls package. OEMs and end users can combine an MMG linear motor stage with a compact Dover board-level single axis servo drive for easy integration into a control cabinet, or a Kollmorgen AKD servo drive for single or multi axis applications with a graphical user interface.
Prior Scientific introduced its NZ400 NanoScan Piezo Stage System. The NZ400 is well suited for researchers producing rapid Z sections and live cell 3D images of specimens grown in well plates, large petri dishes or mounted to glass slides.
Prior introduces the H117P2NN flat top stage for the Nikon Ti series of inverted microscopes. While the H117P2NN is ideal for all high precision biomedical scanning operations, specific attention was given to designing the H117P2NN to assist the researcher who is doing prolonged live cell studies.
The Z Axis Motorized Stage from Prior Scientific offers a wide range of positioning solutions for a variety of applications. Many configurable options are available from a simple motorized linear axis to a full three axis stage system.
Asylum Research has announced the new NanoRack Sample Stretching Stage Accessory for its MFP-3D AFMs. This high-strain, high-travel manual stretching stage provides two axis stress control of tensile loaded samples under different loads.
ASI offers an assortment of stages with flat tops and extended range-of-travel for robotic loading. The MS-2500 stage provides 100 mm of Y-axis travel and 250 mm of X-axis travel, and works well on existing inverted microscopes.
Veeco Instruments announces the BioScope Catalyst Perfusing Stage Incubator to facilitate cell biology studies using simultaneous AFM and optical methods. This accessory enables researchers to maintain ideal cell culture conditions for long-duration live cell studies with Veeco’s Catalyst AFM, extending cell viability over hours or even days.
Prior Scientific introduces the the ProScan III Microscope Automation System. The compact and modular design is capable of controlling up to 16 axes including a motorized stage, focus drive, three filter wheels, and three shutters.
Physitemp Instruments' line of temperature controlled freezing stages for microtomes is designed around a generation of switching power supplies that allow for a compact and light power supply.
Conix Research is launching a new xy microstepping solution, the Precision Ballscrew Stage. Designed for universal microscope applications the Precision Ballscrew stage features a lightweight design that is efficient without sacrificing precision and performance.
The MS-2000 XYZ automated microscope stage (Applied Scientific Instrumentation, Eugene, OR) retains the precision of the company’s regular compact stage while providing increased thermal response times with 3/4 the mass.
M-110 series translation stages provide linear motion of 5, 15 and 25 mm. X, XY and XYZ systems are available, and can be combined with the M-116 miniature rotary stage. The systems can also be equipped with high-speed piezo drives for scanning or positioning with nanometer precision.
BioPrecision2 stage features embedded linear encoders with a resolution of 0.1 micron. The stage is suited for time lapse experiments, image tiling and measurement applications.
