Four Axis Hanging Joystick Oil Hydraulic Micromanipulator

The optimal manipulator specifically made for handling suspension cells

The Narishige TAKANOME MTK-1 4-axis Hanging Joystick Oil Hydraulic Micromanipulator system is a next generation state-of-the-art micromanipulator for laboratory microinjection experiments and In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) procedures. In Japanese, TAKANOME is a metaphor equating this system with a hawk setting its sight on its prey and swooping down precisely, which is exactly what the MTK-1 does. Utilizing improved technology to create elegant simplicity, this advanced system has been especially developed to improve the efficiency of transgenic experiments, IVF, and all procedures involving microinjection of cell suspension cultures.

With a large retraction range of 50mm, the MTK-1 fulfills multiple functions a in single unit, eliminating the need for a separate coarse manipulator. Additionally, this robust micromanipulator includes a innovative design that allows the user to change the pipette angle while keeping the needle tip in the center of the field of view, making angle adjustment a breeze! You can easily switch the pipette from its "home" position to its "working" position, resulting in a significant reduction in the probability of pipette breakage and you will save time by not having to re-position your injection holder each time you change pipettes. With the Narishige MTK-1, you can look forward to a more efficient, precise, and far less painstaking laboratory experience!
