The Z-INSERT K-TYPE is compact version of the Z-INSERT how have the same length and width as a K-Type sample holder (160mm x 110mm). Its low thickness and its large openning give it a large adaptability for step up your setup with lower constraints.

It provides a 83,6 mm by 54 mm opening compatible with our rectangular sample holders witch can have different heights by changing spacers as your setup need.

The Z-INSERT K-TYPE is compatible with the following stages :

  • ASI – MS-2000 Flat Top and non-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 the Nikon Adapter plate, in order to reduce the aperture)
  • Olympus – IX3-SSU (requires the Olympus adapter plate, in order to reduce the aperture)
  • Leica – Regular 3-plate stage
