Z-INSERT

The beauty of the Z-insert is that it fits directly any standard 160mm x 110mm opening (K-type frame) which is used on most motorized stages provided by third party manufacturers.  It provides a 128.5 mm by 86.5 mm opening that accepts directly any multi-well microplates with an SBS Standard 127.5 x 85 mm (5″ x 3 1/3”) footprint, for example, the 96-well microplate.

As an option, sample holders for microscope slides and Petri dishes can be provided.

The Z-insert is compatible with the following stage :

  • ASI – MS-2000 Flat Top XY/XYZ motorized stage
  • Marzhauzer – Scanning Stage SCAN IM 120×80
  • Prior – K type Frame
  • Ludl – BioPrecison2
  • Zeiss – K type Frame
  • Nikon – Ti XY motorized stage (requires Stage Adapter, in order to reduce the aperture)
  • Leica – Regular 3-plate stage

The Z-insert is also compatible with most top-mounted incubation chambers (Digital Pixel, Tokai Hit, Okolab…).
