1660- Used Sensapex SMX Micromanipulator

2,200.00 ex.

This used Sensapex SMX Micromanipulator is small in size but provides full positioning range and full features. Inherently drift-free positioning mechanism together with close-up installation enabled by the small size means outstanding stability. Further on, the small size allows multiple micromanipulator use even in space constrained applications. The micromanipulator concept is designed in co-operation with neuroscientists to maximize the usability and productivity for your research. The micromanipulators are typically used in biomedical research to position a microelectrode or micropipette. In addition, the micromanipulator is suitable for many other applications where high precision positioning is required. The micromanipulator is based on the latest piezo-technology, which is used in combination with integrated linear position sensors and closed-loop control to provide high precision positioning. The mechanical design is based on aerospace quality aluminum alloys for optimal stiffness to weight ratio and provides full grounding skeleton throughout the manipulator. High precision stainless steel crossed roller bearings are used to ensure accurate linear movement.

The offered system includes a control unit and one micromanipulator. Its basic performance, electronics and movement, was tested in our laboratory and we concluded that the instrument is in a good working condition. Based on that we guarantee that the instrument is in a good working condition. However, we must admit that our expertise in this field is limited. So, if after purchase something seems to be wrong with this instrument, we’ll take it back without costs.
