System Overview: Positioning Stages for Inverse Microscopy

Guide for the Perfect Combination of Positioning Stages, Z Stages, and Sample Holders

Positioning samples under the microscope is a complex task for which PI offers numerous products. In order to fulfill the demands placed on the positioning accuracy, travel ranges and velocities, stages that offer long travel ranges are often combined with fine positioning stages. Which systems fit together how, is shown in the system overview for inverse microscopes.
