The 500 series motorized actuators from Siskiyou Corporation (Grants Pass, OR) can replace manual screw and micrometer adjusters on the company's crossed roller bearing linear stages, kinematic mirror mounts, and IS-OGP beam steering assembly for microscopes. The handheld controller for operating these actuators offers two preset drive speeds (0.3 and 0.1 mm/s), as well as an adjustable low speed range from 10 to 30 µm/s. The actuators for translation stages are available with either 12 or 25 mm of travel, and the models intended for mirror mounts offer 5 or 8 mm of total travel. Applications include precision micromanipulation applications in life sciences, including those involving single cells, such as patch clamp and myocyte force studies.
