Scan stage for high-precision analysis of laboratory samples

This high-precision xy stage combination has been specially developed for use in medical technology. This Medial Science XY positioning system, in the shape of an inverted pyramid, is suitable for sample carriers up to 500 grams.  It is operated upright to work in front of a beam source (protons, X-rays, ions, gamma).

  • Ultra fast scanning or irradiation of carriers with more than 100 laboratory samples
  • Highly dynamic batch processing of samples with frequent start-stop phases at peak speeds up to 300 mm/s
  • Stiff, powerful and highly stable at standstill for enormous resolutions in the submicron range
  • Especially suitable for applications where the beam source cannot be tilted (e.g. synchrotron)
  • Extremely high durability - ideal for continuous industrial operation
Optionally expandable:
  • Different travels per axis
  • Configurable for clean room ISO 14644-1 (up to class 1 on request)
  • Cost-optimized variant with sliding screw and a stepper motor on the vertical axis
  • Immediate use with pre-configured controller incl. exemplary software
  • Trigger output or error mapping for the entire system after measurement
