Product benefits

View your entire sample

Featuring 50mm travel in both the X and Y axes, this motorised stage ensures that you will never run out of travel range. With ample room to manoeuvre, you can easily visualise your entire sample.

Easily revisit cells of interest

Through handset control, or the linlab software you can access saved positions. Ideal for multiple patch clamping and locating optimal recording cells, this feature streamlines workflow and maximises efficiency.

Tailor the stage to your requirements

Achieve the utmost precision and control by personalising the speed and acceleration settings using the LinLab software (between 1um/sec and 4mm per sec).

Integrate with your microscope setup

The UMS is compatible with many upright microscope manufacturers including Nikon, Olympus, Leica, and Zeiss. This compatibility saves you valuable time and effort, allowing you to quickly incorporate the UMS into your current setup.

Smoothy search for new cells while retaining patched cells

Experience optimal stability and smooth motion due to the high-quality bearings and design, allowing you to explore your sample while keeping your patched cells intact

Safeguarded against spills

Equipped with a "waterproof skirt," this feature acts as a protective barrier, effectively preventing solutions from reaching the electronics, protecting your equipment, and keeping your experiments running.

Enjoy remote control for enhanced convenience

Motorised remote control allows you to move the stage precisely and confidently, eliminating the need for physical contact with the microscope. This remote control prevents unwanted “bumps” and enables your microscope to be mounted in an enclosure away from the researcher.

Capture even the smallest of electrophysiological signals

The ultra-low noise electronics ensure you can record small signals (including single channel recording) and acquire the highest data quality every time. Making the UMS perfect for your patch clamp electrophysiology experiments.
