Prior XY Linear Motor Stage for Inverted Microscopes

Prior HLD117 XY Linear Stage

HLD117 XY Linear Stage

The HLD117 series of flat top stages with linear motor technology for inverted research microscopes set new standards for convenience and performance. Designed to seamlessly integrate with other items such as micromanipulators and incubation chambers, the top surface of the stage is completely free of obstruction. This provides a highly ergonomic platform with exceptionally easy access to the sample area. The HLD117 incorporates constant contact bearings giving the lowest friction and smoothest drive available. 50 nm encoders are integrated into the stage as standard

The HLD117’s offer superior versatility and are an ideal solution for:

Slide Scanning

Built for performance with unmatched acceleration rates and speeds, the HLD117 is the best choice for either start/stop point to point imaging or for continuous motion and velocity controlled scanning applications. The ProScan controller with TTL I/O and triggering functions provides constant speed movements with extremely low velocity ripple for picture perfect synchronization between automation and imaging software.

Multipoint Imaging

Whether your cells are fixed or in solution Prior linear drive stages make multiple position imaging both rapid and precise. Image acquisition from multiple points scattered across a wide area is faster than previously thought possible – a 96 well plate can be scanned in approximately 15 seconds. The addition of Prior’s Nano positioning Piezo Z stage, offering precise focussing for high end applications, allows three dimensional data collection in milliseconds.
