Hydraulic manipulators for life science investigations   

MX600 Series   

The MX600 series are hydraulic micromanipulators with smooth motion and instant response to hand adjustments. This makes them ideal for long-term intracellular recordings.

The water-based hydraulic mechanism has a thermal expansion two to three times less than that of oil-based systems, thus minimising drift to less than 2 µm per hour at constant temperatures.

MX600 series hydraulic micromanipulators have crossed roller bearings in each axis, and a metal bellows mechanism to ensure precision movement and long service life.

The positioning dials use ultrafine 127 TPI adjustment screws for 0.5 µm of resolution.

Each hydraulic head­stage is equipped with a rotatable electrode/pipette holder that will hold diameters up to 8 mm.

Siskiyou Corporation has been producing popular laboratory mechanicals for over 40 years; designing from the outset with quality and flexibility in mind.

Siskiyou do not aim at single disciplines, such as Photonics or Life Sciences, but craft their products to provide end users with the modular tools for constructing systems that are only limited by their imagination.

These concepts have ensured Siskiyou components outperform and outlast competitive products.
