Prior Scientific Inc. has announced the NZ100 nanopositioning piezo Z-stage suitable for deconvolution and 3-D imaging. It provides 100-µm travel and 1-nm repeatability and features closed-loop control using a subangstrom-resolution piezoresistive sensor. Capable of USB or analog control, the device is compatible with most software packages programmed for controlling piezo objectives. The company says that the stage offers faster movement and sample-settling time as a result of lower mass movement, enabling Z-stacks to be imaged with multiple objectives.
