MICROSCOPY PRODUCTS

The SL160  automated microscope slide loader will be the standard for OEMs and system integrators and allow for precise and safe loading of slides for the pathology, cytology, and screening markets.

The P-725.xCDE2 PIFOC Focus Scanner provides dynamic scanning with travel ranges of 100 µm, 400 µm, or 800 µm and significantly faster response and longer lifetime than motorized drives.

Precision-class XY stages are suitable for applications that require fast precision positioning. When switched off, the drive holds the stage stable, reducing energy consumption and heat generation.

The PIMars Nanopositioning Stage is a high-precision nanopositioner for up to 3 axes. This product features parallel kinematics for faster response times and higher multi-axis accuracy.

The M-545 Microscope XY Stage features a stable platform for P-545 PInano® piezo nanopositioning systems, a travel range 25 mm × 25 mm, and a low profile for easy integration. 

The PIFOC High-Load Objective Scanner is a dynamic system with a long travel range and features the highest linearity, stability, and control dynamics due to direct-measuring capacitive sensors.

PIFOC Objective Scanning Systems feature nanometer precision and high feed force with walking drives, accurate position measuring with an incremental encoder and quick, efficient software integration.

Mad City Labs' QS-PLL™ is an atomic force microscope (AFM) controller designed for use with resonant probes, such as tuning forks, and Mad City Labs nanopositioners and micropositioners. The controller integrates motion control and phase lock loop (PLL) control thus streamlining the hardware interface.

  • William O. Hancock of Penn Sate University breaks down the design and application of two multi-modal microscopes built around the Mad City Labs RM21 single molecule microscope.

  • On the last day of Photonics West 2022, Jennifer Piper at BaySpec discussed hyperspectral cameras, including the GoldenEye Snapshot imager, which is ideal for low light level applications.

  • Nanopositioning motion control technologies are key for the advancement of high resolution microscopy, metrology, photonics and semiconductor wafer test. A few examples are explained in the video.

  • This fast, ultra-precise nano-focusing Z-stage with voice coil motor enables faster and higher precision objective focusing, leading to advancements in high resolution 2 photon fluorescence microscopy, image stack acquisition, genome sequencing, digital slide scanning and deep tissue analysis.

  • The HLD117 series of flat top stages with linear motor technology for inverted research microscopes set new standards for convenience and performance. Designed to seamlessly integrate with other items such as micromanipulators and incubation chambers, the top surface of the stage is completely free of obstruction. This provides a highly ergonomic platform with exceptionally easy access to the sample area.
