  • Patch-slice manipulator systems that require more than 2 or 3 pipettes as well as for other setups where space is limited

Our new SU-MP265/M "narrow format" mechanical is designed especially for patch-slice manipulator systems that require more than 2 or 3 pipettes as well as for other setups where space is limited.

The SU-MP265/M mechanical builds on our existing manipulator line in several ways. First, the narrow format means more manipulators can be grouped around a recording chamber. Next, the narrow format SU-MP265/M allows a high precision manipulator to be inserted into small spaces in existing setups. Finally, travel in the Y-axis is shortened (12.5 mm) both to economize on width and because radially oriented manipulators do not require long travel in the traverse axis.

The SU-MP265/M manipulator is designed specifically for systems requiring 4 or more manipulators. To this end, we have put together systems with special pricing for 4, 5 and 6 manipulators, and 2 or 3 dual manipulator controllers. The optional narrow-format stand and linear slide or rotating base is available for mounting the SU-MP265/M manipulators. With the 150 mm throw of the linear slide, the manipulator can be quickly and smoothly moved out to a location where there is easy access to the pipette for replacement. A rotating base can be used for mounting to large platform stages like the Sutter MT-78, or smaller Sutter MD Series platforms.

The SU-MPC365 systems are formed by using the popular MPC-200 dual manipulator controller and ROE-200 (#505083), with one or more SU-MP265/M mechanicals. A single MPC-200 controllers and ROE-200 can run one or two SU-MP265/M manipulators. A single ROE-200, when paired with two MPC-200 controllers can control up to four SU-MP265/M manipulators. If you require more manipulators in a single setup, you simply duplicate the smaller systems. A new firmware version of the MPC-200/ROE-200 automatically recognizes the SU-MP265/M mechanical and adjusts accordingly.
