Platform System

Photonics Spectra
Oct 2010
Prior Scientific Inc.Request Info
 
Prior Scientific Inc. has introduced the ZDeck Quick Adjust Platform System for Olympus BX51WI and BX61WI microscopes. It increases productivity by allowing the user to image multiple areas of interest with high speed and precision. It lowers quickly and easily via the use of pneumatic pistons, providing easy access for loading and unloading of samples. No tools are required for height adjustment, simplifying the transition between thin sample and whole-animal imaging heights, which can be accomplished in seconds. One condenser and four pillar spacers are included to allow for Koehler illumination at a wide range of focus heights. The system incorporates a customized and proprietary ProScan series high-precision motorized stage that provides submicron repeatability and smooth movement. The stage is controlled by the new ProScan III controller and PS3J100 joystick, which provide ultrafine X-Y stage control via dual digipots. Oversize plates are provided on both sides of the sample area for mounting micromanipulators.

GLOSSARY
Koehler illumination
A two-stage illuminating system for a microscope in which the source is imaged in the aperture of the substage condenser by an auxiliary condenser, and the substage condenser in turn forms an image of the auxiliary condenser on the object. An iris diaphragm is often placed at each condenser. The first iris controls the area of the object to be illuminated, and the second iris varies the numerical aperture of the illuminating beam.
microscope
An instrument consisting essentially of a tube 160 mm long, with an objective lens at the distant end and an eyepiece at the near end. The objective forms a real aerial image of the object in the focal plane of the eyepiece where it is observed by the eye. The overall magnifying power is equal to the linear magnification of the objective multiplied by the magnifying power of the eyepiece. The eyepiece can be replaced by a film to photograph the primary image, or a positive or negative relay...
repeatability
The degree to which a predetermined or previous setting of a positioning device can be duplicated by observance of the optical phenomena.
