Universal Micromanipulator Stands enable scientists to mount their manual and motorized micromanipulators at variable angles and heights. A solid aluminum platform with a grooved tower allows the user to attach any micromanipulator of any size or shape to the post for infinite flexibility. Once mounted, the micromanipulator can be set at any height along the entire length (30 cm or 45 cm). The platform base comes configured with industry standard pre-bored holes (1/4-20 x 1" or M6 x 25 mm), allowing direct mounting to any type vibration-free table (for patch clamp recordings) or optical bench (for laser and optical measurements).
Using additional Rotation Clamps (one included with stand), two or more micromanipulators can be mounted on the stand simultaneously in a space-saving convenient manner. WPI's Universal Stand not only allows the user 360° flexibility in manipulations but also promotes independent angular transitions using a single feather-light tensioner/adjustment screw. This affordable stand is currently the preferred choice in micromanipulator stands - head and shoulders above set-ups using multiple magnetic based stands costing hundreds more when combined with antiquated heavy steel base plates.
Mounting a Manipulator
In order to mount the following manipulators, the 300561 spacer kit is required:
Part # 300561 is a spacer block that is used to position the mounting of the manipulator body further away from the main post of the stand. This prevents the main post of the stand from physically interfering with the ability to position the manipulator through the full range of motion of the rotational clamp.
