Features

WPI introduces a compact high precision motorized micromanipulator (SM325). It features low noise, high stability, a user-friendly software interface and economy that are major concerns in IVF and patch clamp research.

Stepping motor and travel

The SM325 is driven in all three axes through high resolution stepping motors, which can achieve 40,000 steps per revolution (25 nm/step) with completely vibration-free motion. In a normal lab environment, it can stay localized overnight without drifting. The 25mm long range of travel makes it unnecessary to have an additional manual coarse adjustment.

Mount to microscope

Its compact construction makes mounting onto the stage plate of a microscope practical. The x-axis can be tilted by 90° that allows for a better positioning of the injection tool. An additional tilting fixture makes it possible to tilt the tool holder for fast and easy cleaning and exchange of the injection tool.

Controller

The MCL3 controller features a dynamic micro-step function that makes very quick positioning possible with maximum accuracy. Motor control is achieved with a linear output amplifier, which also drastically reduces electronic noise. Users can control the micromanipulators by joystick, keyboard, mouse or computer. The user-friendly software program can be enabled to remember up to 999 position coordinates from previous procedures and can robotically repeat this same positioning sequence.
