Product Description

Like the popular Nano-Bio Series, the new Nano-BioS Series are ultra low profile, two axis piezo nanopositioning systems designed to be easily integrated into existing inverted microscopes, AFM’s and other instrumentation where space is limited. The large, rectangular center aperture allows the Nano-BioS to hold re-entrant sample holders for standard 3 inch slides and other similar sized biological samples such as Lab-Tek chamber slides. The Nano-BioS Series stages include internal position sensors with proprietary PicoQ® technology to provide absolute, repeatable position measurement and picometer resolution under closed loop feedback control. The Nano-BioS stages are constructed from anodized aluminum and are offered in three ranges of motion: 100μm, 200μm, and 300μm. If motion in all three axes is needed, the Nano-LPS Series is a similar sized microscopy stage which is also able to move in the Z-axis for focusing operations. See the Nano-LPS Series for a low profile, 3-axis piezo nanopositioning system.
