The base of the manual micromanipulator is in keeping with the mass and stability of the entire instrument
This ultraprecise manual micromanipulator has a mass of 6 kg and solid workmanship to support the most precise movement with a minimum of hand-transmitted vibration, backlash or drift. The instrument can be used alone or can serve as an ideal mount for even more precise microdrives. The entire micromanipulator can be tilted forward up to 25° so that cells can be penetrated along the axis of one of the drives. The same locking screw that controls the tilt also provides coarse height adjustment. The probe holder has multiple locking swivels allowing it to be positioned at any angle relative to the X, Y or Z axes.
