Hydraulic, Integrated Post Mount
Smooth motion and instant
response to hand adjustments makes the MX6500 ideal for long term
intracellular recordings. The water-based hydraulic mechanism
has a thermal expansion two to three times less than that of oil based
systems, thus minimizing drift to less than 2 Ám per hour at constant
The MX6500 hydraulic micromanipulator is the integrated version of our
1600 series manual crossed roller bearing stages. This design
integrates the metal bellows system with our precision crossed roller
stage to ensure precision movement and long life. The fine
positioning dials on three axes use our ultra-fine 127TPI adjustment
screws to enable 0.5 Ám resolution. The coarse positioning knobs on
four axes incorporate 20TPI screw drive positioning for smooth motion in
the X, Y, Z, and probe axes. The probe can be adjusted to the
desired angle of approach from 0░ to 180░.
The MX6500 has our MXC-45 mounted to the probe axis. The MXC-45's
built-in rotational stop allows easy electrode/pipette replacement.
MX6500s come standard with our
MX312P mounting platform, and LMP-6 mounting rod. This rod mounted
configuration enables maximum flexibility in height adjustment and also
allows the manipulator to be rotated out of the experiment area and back
in place against a solid stop.
