ZDeck Quick Adjust Platform
Jul 2010
Prior Scientific Inc.Request Info
ROCKLAND, Mass., July 20, 2010 — 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. Oversized plates are provided on both sides of the sample area for mounting micromanipulators.

The ProScan series stage also can be equipped with encoders for applications that require the ultimate in high precision. The ZDeck System is compatible with 6-mm or ¼-20 vibration isolation tables.

ZDeck travel is 50 mm, X-Y travel is 114 × 49 mm, X-Y resolution is 10 nm, and X-Y speed is 15 mm/s. The ProScan computer interfaces are RS-232 and USB.
