The one-axis motorized operation makes careful work easier to achieve.

The MDS-1 One-axis motorized micromanipulator is add-on type for Z-axis direction that is suitable for experiments in rodents. Ideal for precise control that requires careful work in mouse/rat brains, such as implanting GRIN lens, inserting optical fiber and silicon probe for multi-neuron recordings. The drive unit is controlled digitally and remotely, which offers speed control and precise control: those operations are impossible to be performed by a manual model. Two setting modes are available: entering speed directly or entering distance and time. The range of drive speed is set as 0.1 um/s to 500 um/s. The drive unit accommodates to hold a shaft with 3mm to 8mm O.D.

*The distance between the control unit and drive unit can be extended from the original 1.5m (4.9ft) in total to 7m(28.2ft) by MD-DCE-7 (sold separately).

*Palm-sized compact controller MD-OH-1 (sold separately) is also available.
