Product Description

The Nano-Z500 is a long range, Z-axis nanopositioner specifically designed to hold multiwell plates used in biomedical research. High-throughput single cell fluorescence microscopy and high speed, high resolution confocal imaging can be accomplished while simultaneously adjusting the Z-axis position to remove the effects of multiwell plate irregularities. The Nano-Z500 has true flexure guided motion and contains internal position sensing. Utilizing proprietary PicoQ® technology, the position sensors provide absolute, repeatable position measurement for closed loop control with a resolution of better than 1 nm over the full 500 micron travel range. In addition to high resolution spatial imaging, the Nano-Z500’s 15 ms step response allows entire Z-section acquisitions with minimal photo bleaching.
