MTK-1 and MTK-1VM
Four-axis Hanging Joystick Oil Hydraulic Micromanipulator
The optimal manipulator specifically made for handling suspension cells!
Once having been set, the innovative fan-shaped driver never fails to return to where the pipette tip is supposed to be. The newly installed lever allows a pipette to move along its axis by using traditional and smooth oil hydraulic joystick. This manipulator will spare the laborious work of a pipette alignment with the optical axis, providing more time for objective operation.
* This product is sold in the set of both handed manipulators and a dedicated adaptor.
Takenome can be fitted to multiple different manufacturers microscopes, please see below)
Easy attachment of a pipette
The injection holder is provided with an anchor (special clasp) that fits in the driver body, which enables a distance from a pipette tip to the anchor to be in a length. This function can be used for memorizing a regular position so that time for a pipette exchange will reduce and repeated pipette location is precise and stable.
Pipette angle adjustment centred at the tip to stay in view
The pipette tip is designed for staying at the optical axis against any angles. So angle adjustment is hard to miss the tip in the field of view.
Simple and reliable motion from Home to Working position
50mm retracting margin enables easy exchange of a pipette. Breakage of pipettes is greatly reduced during the replacement.
Microscope compatibility table
A dedicated adaptor for each microscope has been developed. It needs no adjustment for mounting so that it can be installed at best position without fail. Find an appropriate adaptor in the following table.
