[ English / Japanese ]
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).
