For users who wish to use the MP-285 or MP-225 manipulator in conjunction with an inverted microscope, Sutter Instrument has designed a series of Microscope Dependent (MD) stands. The typical MD stand is a manipulator platform that bolts directly to the frame of an inverted microscope. This platform lends itself to the absolutely drift-free recording configuration required when using the manipulators to position patch-electrodes to record from attached cells in culture.
To mount the MP-285 to an MD stand you also need either the 285210 mounting adapter plate (for orthogonal mounting) or the 285RBI rotating base that allows for non-orthogonal mounting and rotation of the entire manipulator.
(Note: the 285210 mounting plate is included with each MP-285 and MP-225.)
MD-60 works with 3 plate stage #561040, DOES NOT work with fixed stage #521507 or 96 well plate stage #521508. For these stages we recommend the MT-75 tall gantry stand.
