When recording from organotypic slices or other cell cultures grown on glass coverslips, it is often necessary to view multiple sites with a microscope without disturbing stimulating and recording electrodes. This is accomplished by mounting the chamber, micromanipulators and other apparatus on a fixed stage (available for mounting on the Science Products tower system). The microscope is placed on a moveable platform with fine adjustment in the x and y axes.
The VT-1 is a large x-y platforms made to carry the weight of a microscope and its attachments, while providing fine motion control, up to 25 mm in both directions. Manual adjustments are made with ultra fine screw drives providing resolution > 1 µm.
