Large or irregular samples not a problem with microscopic imaging

For viewing and imaging of samples, the ProZ motorised focus stand from Prior Scientific is a suitable solution, especially for samples that maybe too large, or irregularly shaped, to be fitted onto a standard microscope frame or stand, but still require high quality imaging.   

Offering a travel range of 250mm and flexible mounting adapters, to mount most zoom, stereo and compound microscope heads means using the ProZ you are no longer restricted by the small focus travel of standard microscope frames and stands.

Accommodating the optical head of high quality zoom, stereo and compound microscopes such as the Nikon AZ100, SMZ 25 and Ni, or the Olympus MVX10, SZX2 and BX models, the ProZ stand enables the imaging of samples that until now could not easily be analysed.

The ProZ combines large focus travel movement with precise encoded resolution (0.25µm). Designed to securely accommodate components up to 23kg in weight, more than sufficient for a zoom, stereo or compound microscope head, the ProZ can be mounted onto a range of bases, or bolted straight onto an optical table.

Coupled with other products from Prior Scientific’s ranges of motorised microscope components it is possible to create a tailored flexible system optimised to suit exact requirements. For example, a motorised focus block, and X-Y stage could be added, combined with a ProZ stand, Prior’s H112 stage, with a travel range of 300x300mm, is suitable for allowing a large sample to be finely positioned in the X, Y and Z axis.

The ProZ is also flexible enough to accommodate a range of illumination sources, including commercial microscope illumination bases.
