High Speed Solution Switcher
The MXPZT-300 series solution switcher uses a
high-speed piezo flexure guided nano positioner to move pipette tips in
solution switching applications. It can move an electrode tip across a 5 Ám thick
theta glass septum. This system is ideal for measuring cellular response to
drugs or other elements in solution.
Piezo movement can be triggered by either input from
common recording amplifier equipment or by Siskiyou software via
a LabVIEWT interface that can control distance, frequency and dwell time. The
MXPZT-300 also includes the piezo amplifier box and the Input-Shaping« board, which
significantly reduces pipette tip vibration and can be programmed to
virtually eliminate resonances from your specific system.
The piezo flexure guided nano
positioner is mounted
to our ultra-stable MX1640 crossed roller micromanipulator. The MX1640 has 20mm of travel in all four axes. The fourth axis can be set at any
angle to select the desired approach angle. This adjustable fourth axis incorporates our MXC-45 to allow rotation of the piezo/pipette assembly up and out of the
experiment for easy glass replacement. The base of the MX1640 also has a
built-in coarse adjustment for
rotation of the entire manipulator, or can also be
used with our MX-RS rotation stage for more precise motion.
