for experiments where a large single stage is dictated,
large-stage platforms provide solid, stable support
and ample space to attach manipulators and other
instruments as needed. The rigid aluminum top plate
sits firmly on two MT-75 gantry-style stands.
Multiple degrees of freedom accommodate a variety of
microscope and instrument arrangements.
MT-78-FS Fixed Stage platform, paired with a
Sutter Instrument XY translator (either the motorized MT-800
or manual MT-500), offers a large,
single-platform solution for researchers performing
experiments requiring X-Y translation of the optical
pathway in order to view multiple locations within the
specimen at high resolution.
cast aluminum top plate used in the MT-78-FS
has an attractive shape with an extensive 1/4-20
threaded hole pattern on 1-inch centers. This hole
pattern is appropriate for mounting Sutter MP285 or
MP225 manipulator mechanicals. Optional rotating bases
(285RBI) are also compatible.
the center of the MT-78-FS top plate is a 4X6
inch milled pocket that will accommodate a variety of
aluminum stage inserts. Custom aluminum inserts can
also be provided. An available magnetic stainless
steel insert carries commercial chambers or can be
provided with a simple large, through hole for
mounting a custom chamber.
