The MX130 low-profile micromanipulator from Siskiyou Corporation (Grants Pass, OR) facilitates the positioning of multiple probes in the space-constrained and often-crowded space around a microscope sample in applications such as electrophysiology (patch clamp) studies and in vitro fertilization (IVF). In particular, the series includes three-axis linear translation stages that provide independent coarse and fine adjustment of the dedicated manipulator axis, as well as manual independent adjustment of the other two orthogonal axes. Total range of motion along the probe axis is 42 mm, with a fine motion range of 3 mm at a resolution of 5 µm. Right- and left-handed configurations are available to simplify the use of multiple probes and electrodes.
