Product Description

The Mad-Deck™ is a versatile stage platform designed for a variety of advanced microscopy techniques. It is ideal for microscopy and imaging applications that require free access above and below the sample plane. The Mad-Deck™ is available in a variety of models, all of which have automated Z axis travel. The Z-axis has been specifically designed to ensure planar motion. The heart of the Mad-Deck™ is our proprietary intelligent control resulting in ultra-precise and high stability stepper motor movement. These attributes also make the Mad-Deck™ compatible with our closed loop piezo nanopositioning systems allowing users to implement nanoscale imaging and microscopy techniques. The Mad-Deck™ is designed for use on all optical tables and can be customized for your application via standard options: encoders, breadboards, riser plinths, sample holders, etc. The Mad-Deck™ is driven by the Micro-Drive™ controller which utilizes a USB digital interface. This allows users to use the supplied LabView based software or develop their own VIs for automation. In addition, the Micro-Drive™ is compatible with other 3rd party software..
