A Guide to Motorized & Automated Microscope Stages
High-performance microscopes are used in many applications, ranging from research and education to laboratories, production, and more. No matter what, a precision stage is needed to hold, move, and manipulate specimens in an accurate and repeatable way. At Griffin Motion, we specialize in designing and producing motorized and automated XY stages specifically for microscopes. Our microscope stages enable you to move your samples and slides with all the precision you need, duplicate these motions, and automate the process for maximum benefit.
Motorizing Your Microscope Stages
Anyone who used a microscope in school remembers twisting the dials to move specimens into the right position for a proper view. Griffin Motion’s motorized microscope stages bring computer precision to stage positioning. That means you can move your sample or slide in tiny intervals in any X-axis or Y-axis direction. Our stages offer precision and repeatability down to 10 micrometers (microns) and even smaller, which is just one-fifth the width of a human hair. This enables incredibly fine positioning and motion that’s just not possible with manual stage control. In demanding microscopic applications, this level of control and precision makes all the difference.
Griffin Motion’s full lines of linear stages and XY stages include models that are ideally suited to microscope stage applications. We also offer custom stages that can be tailored to your specific needs.
Computer-Automated Microscope Stages
The advantages of motorized microscope stages can be supercharged by adding the latest in computer automation. The ability to program a precise motion or series of motions for microscope stages makes life much easier in testing, analysis, quality control, and other functions that need to be performed repeatedly. Whether it’s slides, petri dishes, or other type of sample holder, our automation solutions make it simple to perform large-batch microscopic observations very efficiently and accurately.
When you come to us for microscope stage automation, we’ll carefully assess your application needs, challenges, and goals. Then, we’ll create an unbeatable custom solution for you that combines our precision motorized microscope stage positioners fit precisely to your system, along with the latest in software technology for powerful automation. Our expert team has the experience needed to handle whatever your application might demand.
