The MX7500 motorized crossed roller bearing micromanipulator is ideal for patch recording experiments. The MX7500 offers exceptionally smooth linear travel and uses a precision preloaded lead screw to ensure drift-free operation. The motorized 4-axis micromanipulator incorporates our MXC-45 pipette holder mounted to an adjustable clamp on the probe axis. This clamp allows the MXC- 45 and probe axis to be adjusted to the desired angle of approach from 0° to 180° for true axial approach. The MXC-45's built-in rotational stop allows easy pipette replacement.
The MX7500 can be used with our e series and MC2000 controllers to drive the 7500 stage through a closed loop interface between the controller and the motor encoder. The closed loop connection ensures 0.2 µm and 0.1 µm resolution, respectively. The encoder coupling also enables the use of the DR1000 digital readout for repeated or relative positioning requirements. All cables are shielded to ensure noise-free operation during sensitive electrophysiology experiments.
MX7500s 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. High-speed versions available upon request.
