ROCKLAND, Mass., April 8, 2010 — Prior Scientific Inc. has launched the ProScan III microscope automation system. With its compact, modular design and its programmable TLL, it can control up to 16 axes including a motorized stage, focus drive, three filter wheels and three shutters for fast analog interfacing and camera control with the speed, accuracy and precision required by highly automated and demanding applications.
Its improved processor provides up to a 250% increase in stage speed. Its small footprint saves valuable workspace and eases the pressure on the limited space constraints in modern laboratories.
Communication to the controller has been improved with a true USB with direct human interface device connection, making the unit Windows- and Mac-compatible. The interactive control center provides centralized manual control of all equipment. The screen provides positional feedback while the joystick, buttons and digipots control accessories such as the stage, focus drive, filter wheels, and shutters.
New features in the center allow the user to measure distances, label filter wheel positions with dye names (e.g., DAPI, FITC) and take fine control of the stage for intricate movements.
The microscope automation system is suited for use in demanding imaging applications that require high accuracy, speed and repeatability, with the option to encode all axes.
