Micromanipulators

Micromanipulators

Micromanipulators are used when precision work is conducted under a microscope. A micropipette, electrode or probe can be mounted on a micromanipulator and move as little as a micron at a time. This tool can be used for in vitro fertilization, patch clamp experimentation, extracellular recording, microinjection and any application requiring fine mechanical placement (resolution). In addition to micromanipulators,  WPI offers tilt bases, piezo translators and a variety of stands.
Micromanipulators can be broken out into three broad categories: Manual, Manual/Motorized and Motorized.

  1. Manipulator Accessories
    Clamps, bases, probes and more. We have accessories for micromanipulators used in research laboratories.
  2. Manipulator Stands
    See our selection of stands and magnetic bases for use with manipulators in research laboratories.
  3. Manual Manipulators
    WPI offers affordable and high end micromanipulators for use in research laboratories. 
  4. Motorized Micromanipulators
    We offer a variety of motorized micromanipulators for laboratory use.  See our popular DC3001 with MS314 controller.
