New System Configurator for Inverted Microscopes & XY Motorized Stages, What to Use When

(Nanowerk News) To answer the demand for an integrated inverted microscope positioning system that must match perfectly, PI (Physik Instrumente), a leader in precision motion control and nanopositioning solutions, has released an interactive brochure to aid in building the system by beginning with a fine positioner and/or a sample holder. Stages with piezo nanopositioning are incorporated to satisfy application requirements, such as low-profile, vibration-free dynamic range, and XY / Z positioning.

Precision Positioning is the Key Element in High Resolution Microscopy

Precision positioning of the sample is a must for accurate results when using an inverted microscope. PI provides options with high stability motorized stages for long travel ranges with wide dynamic range, manual sample positioning / prepositioning, piezo scanning stages, and z-positioning / vertical stages to move the sample or the objective. PI solutions include:
  • High Stability, Ceramic Linear Motor-Driven, Long Travel XY Stage System, with Controller and Joystick
  • XYZ Nanopositioning Stage, for Super-Resolution Microscopy, P-545 PInano with Digital Controller and Software
  • Piezo Z-Insert, for fast Nano-Focus of Samples, P-736 PInano Stage XY Stage with Digital Controller and Software
