THE Eclipse Ts2R is Nikon’s new intermediate-sized inverted research microscope, an instrument which can be configured for a number of observation methods including phase contrast, emboss contrast, Hoffman modulation contrast, and differential interference contrast (DIC).
Now Prior Scientific has introduced a new range of stages, focus motors and automation software for the instrument.
For highly accurate and precise XY sample positioning, Prior’s H117 microscope stage offers a travel range of 114x75mm.
The company says its Intelligent Scanning Technology enables Nikon Ts2R users to increase accuracy with this stage, offering 10nm resolution and mean repeatability of +/-0.2um.
For accurate and repeatable focussing control, the Prior Scientific says the PS3H122R focus motor delivers a focus resolution of just two nanometres – 0.002um.
The ProScan III Control System allows users to control the entire imaging process from a single point, and even controls the acceleration, speed, and drive current of the accessories.
