Smooth motion and instant response to hand adjustments makes the MX630 and the MX610 ideal for long term intracellular recordings. The water based hydraulic mechanism has a thermal expansion two to three times less than that of oil based systems, thus minimizing drift to less than 2 µm per hour at constant temperatures.
MX600 series hydraulic micromanipulators have crossed roller bearings in each axis. This along with a metal bellow system ensure precision movement and long life. The positioning dials use our ultrafine 127TPI adjustment screws to enable 0.5 µm resolution. Each hydraulic headstage is equipped with a rotatable electrode/pipette holder that will hold diameters from 3- to 8-mm.
For added coarse positioning the MX600 series micromanipulator can be mounted on our MX110, MX160, or MX1600 series of manipulators.
