Mad CIty Labs' RM21™ is a precision aligned microscope platform for epifluorescence microscopy. The RM21™ has been designed for maximum user accessibility. This feature offers users the opportunity to develop flexible configuration microscopy instruments with ease. It has been manufactured with high precision to allow easy alignment of microscopy and optical components within its three dimensional space. In addition, all posts and fixturing points are referenced to a known datum. With a robust design, precision manufacturing and assembly, the RM21™ is the ideal platform for a range of microscopy applications such as super resolution (SR) microscopy, fluorescence microscopy and TIRF.
The RM21™ includes the precision platform with an axial, motorized Z axis approach suitable for lens positioning, manual or motorized XY micropositioner for sample positioning (manual version and accessories not pictured above). The Z axis has a displacement of 2 inches (50mm) with a 95nm step size. A customized platform version without XY micropositioners is available. Optional encoders can be added to motorized X, Y, and Z for accurate micropositioner displacement readouts.
The RM21™ can be seamlessly integrated with the Nano-Cyte® 3D microscope stability system. The RM21™ can also interface with other Mad City Labs products like closed loop nanopositioning systems, including the Nano-LPS Series (shown above) and high speed Nano-LPQ. The Nano-OP Series and theNano-F Series objective nanopositioners can be added on for control of focus down to the subnanometer level. The ease of integration with Mad City Labs nanopositioning and microspositioning systems provides the researcher with a flexible microscopy platform with high precision performance for the most demanding microscopy techniques.
