Three-axis Hanging Joystick Oil Hydraulic Micromanipulator

MMO-4:  $7,675.68 - Ships in 1-5 days
The MMO-4 micromanipulator features an oil hydraulic joystick that allows for smooth three-dimensional movement with a single control. This updated model works from both the left and right side of the sample without any conversion. Improved joystick movement is the key to greater control, and it reduces the risk of unwanted drift as well. The ergonomic hanging joystick enables users to keep their arms and hands on the table in a natural posture for comfortable prolonged use. An improved universal joint (UT-10) is also included, for stable, accurate attachment of a pipette holder and easy setting of pipette angle.

*For attachment to the microscope, a coarse manipulator and suitable mounting adaptor are required (sold separately).
*Select Type B adaptor for mounting this manipulator in combination with MMN-1 coarse manipulator.
*Changing the universal joint included with the micromanipulator to the double pipette holder HD-21 (sold separately) enables performance of embryo biopsy.
*Changing the universal joint that attaches the micromanipulator to MMO-220A/MMO-220B single-axis oil hydraulic micromanipulator enables four-dimensional remote controlled movement.
*In combination with the return mechanism UT-R (sold separately), MMO-4 enables mechanisms of retracting the pipette.

Q: What is the main advantage of the MMO-4 hydraulic micromanipulator over the MN-151 mechanical micro manipulator?
A: With a mechanical micromanipulator like the MN-151, the user touches the actual micromanipulator to move the joystick. This can introduce some vibration and some torque during movement. With a hydraulic micromanipulator like the MMO-4, the joystick is separated from the micromanipulator by the hydraulic tubes, so the user doesn't touch it, and so the movement is smooth and well isolated.
