micropositioning stage with manual micrometers for Olympus BX upright microscope

Product Description

The Manual MicroStage-BX fits onto Olympus upright BX microscopes and uses manual micrometers to control XY motion. Total XY range of motion is 25mm. Continuous internal position locking combined with excellent stability makes this stage an ideal base for Mad City Labs' high resolution piezo nanopositioning stages. Standard, non-locking, manual microscope stages suffer from position drift if used as a coarse positioner for a fast moving piezo nanopositioning stage. Constructed from anodized aluminum, the Manual MicroStage-BX has a specialized mounting arrangement which mates directly with the Olympus BX Series microscopes (see picture above). No additional hardware or brackets are necessary.

For inverted microscopes, see the Manual MicroStage Series, which includes stages that are compatible with the following inverted microscopes: Olympus IX/IX2 Series, Nikon TE2000/Ti Series, Leica DMI Series, and Zeiss Axiovert/Axio Observer Series. Manual MicroStages designed to fit other setups, including direct mounting to optical tables, may also be requested. For extended XY motion (to 50mm) combined with a design that allows microscope objective nosepiece rotation on inverted microscopes, see the Manual MicroStage-LT Series.
