Water Hydraulic System5:1 Cartridge (Legend Symbols)

Three-axis Water Hydraulic Micromanipulator

Acclaimed water hydraulic manipulator for patch clamping.

This was Narishige's first water hydraulic micromanipulator specially designed for patch clamping. Its water hydraulic system has a lower coefficient of expansion than an oil hydraulic system, and allows precise movement. A 5:1 cartridge is incorporated to minimize drifting. The large, rigid driving unit enables fine movements and coarse manipulations and a sturdy ball joint is also used. Installation is made more rigid by securing attachments with a double adaptor or an isolation table, eliminating direct attachments to the bar. The drum type control unit has a large handle for precise operation and high linear repeatability. Overall, design considerations are focused on precision movement and stability over long periods of time.

* For attachment to the microscope, a suitable mounting adaptor is required (sold separately).

* The micromanipulator can be mounted directly on the isolation table.

* This model can be firmly fixed to any part of the isolation table with GJ-12 thin-type magnetic stand (sold separately).

* AP-12A/AP-13-2 patch clamp headstage holders can be attached on the B-9 ball joint, incorporated in the manipulator.

* Combining the B-9 ball joint included with the micromanipulator with MHW-4 one-axis water hydraulic micromanipulator (sold separately) enables four-dimensional remote controlled movement.
