MHW-3:  $7,945.95 - Ships in 1-5 days
Narishige's MHW-3 is a water hydraulic micromanipulator specially designed for patch clamping. Its water hydraulic system has a lower coefficient of expansion than an oil hydraulic system, and allows precise movement. A 1:5 cartridge is incorporated to minimize drifting. The large, rigid driving unit enables fine movements and coarse manipulations and a sturdy ball joint is also used. Installation is made more rigid by securing attachments to the bar. The drum type control unit has a large handle for precise operation and high linear repeatability. Overall, design considerations are focused on precision movement and stability over long periods of time. This model set the standards for subsequent models of micromanipulators for patch clamping.

*For attachment to the microscope, a suitable adaptor is required (sold separately).
*The micromanipulator can be mounted directly on the isolation table.
*This model can be firmly fixed to any part of the isolation table with GJ-12 thin-type magnetic stand (sold separately).
*AP-12A/AP-12L/AP-12N/AP-13-2 patch clamp headstage holders can be attached on the B-9 ball joint, incorporated in the manipulator .
*Combining the ball joint that attaches the micromanipulator with MHW-4 single-axis water hydraulic micromanipulator enables four-dimensional remote controlled movement.
