• Brass dovetail slide construction – strong and durable
• Available with fixed or tiltable X-axis arm
• Stable probe clamp allows for firm hold of 1/4 to 1/2 inch probe, rod or electrode
• Available for right- or left-handed use
Manufactured from brass, these Dovetail Slide Micromanipulators are significantly more durable, and hold greater weight without slippage or drift, than any ball bearing slide micromanipulator available. Micromanipulators are available with a fixed or a tiltable X axis arm. The fixed arm version has the X axis locked at precisely 90°. The tilt arm version can be rotated to any desired angle and securely locked.
The dovetail slides are driven by rack and pinion mechanisms for rapid positioning to a resolution of 0.1 mm on the coarse vertical (Z) and lateral (Y) drives. The probe direction (X) drive is also graduated in 0.1 mm increments, and has an anti-backlash worm drive for more precise control of movement.
The fine drive, graduated in 0.01 mm increments, is located on the base of the Z axis. This is especially useful where the specimen is in a Petri dish or microtiter tray. The probe holder allows mounting of any rod or pipette, even up to 1/2 inch diameter. These micromanipulators can be mounted directly on several bases via the most secure dovetail slide mount. Alternatively, a mounting ring bracket is available, which allows mounting onto any 1/2 inch rod. The Rectangular Base (72-6034) and Mounting Ring (72-6051) must be purchased separately.
The adjustable probe clamp allows firm hold of the widest range of probe and electrode diameters, providing absolutely steadfast grip of any probe, rod or electrode holder from 1/4 to 1/2 inches.
