When you want to move a slide or mounted sample in the X,Y or Z axis, there is a motorised solution that performs precisely and repeatedly.
Samples can be bio-medical transparent slide, opaque materials or industrial samples or even a combination of both, stages are available to work in a stand-alone or integrate configuration.
Typically accommodating up to 2, 4 or 8 standard 75x25mm slides the stages can be mounted on most research and some more routine microscopes. The controllers allow scanning patterns to be established and memorised to aid repetitive inspections.
Motorised focus drives are also available to couple directly with the microscope controls, ensuring precise movement in the Z-direction.
