XY Stages for Industrial and Routine Microscopy Applications

Especially in the construction of automated microscope systems for quality control or the screening of biological samples, costs of subsystems play a significant role. With the mechanical stage M 971, Physik Instrumente (PI) provides an alternative.

The M-971 motorized mechanical stage is used in automated optical microscope systems for materials testing, inspection or biotechnology.

PI now offers manufacturers of automated microscope systems for material testing, inspection or biotechnology an inexpensive XY table, which is characterized by particularly high stability. On the one hand, its design is largely standardized in order to save costs, but still offers the possibility of customer-specific adaptations such as flexible travel ranges or versions with apertures. Tried and tested stepper motors and spindles already serve as a drive. The design of the guides which includes several short crossed roller guides distributes the load evenly over a large surface and ensures high stiffness and good travel accuracy. Reference and limit switches facilitate a fast startup and a safe use. The C-663 Mercury Controller or standard stepper motor controls can be used to control the stage.

For microscopy, PI not only offers XY stages but also focusing units, fast scanners for tracking applications, or sample scanners with six degrees of freedom and positioning accuracies in the range of single nanometers, for example for atomic force microscopy.
