The Nano-F Series by Mad City Labs are nanopositioner focusing elements for applications involving confocal imaging, auto focusing, STORM imaging, and PALM imaging. They offer 100 or 200 microns of travel and are operable as standalone focusing elements or with other Mad City Labs’ nanopositioning stages.
One of the more prominent features of the Nano-F series are the internal position sensors using proprietary pico Q technology, providing absolute and repeatable position measurement for precise closed loop control. A very low off-axis motion is also a notable feature as it maintains stability in the images a microscope captures throughout the entire range of motion.
Mad City Labs offers a variety of quick-mount adapter threads so that the Nano-F focusing elements can be used on all microscopes. For additional information on features and specifications, download the datasheet.
