In recording from organotypic slice or other cell cultures grown on glass coverslips, it is often necessary to view multiple sites with a microscope without disturbing stimulating and recording electrodes. This is accomplished by mounting the chamber, micromanipulators and other apparatus on a fixed stage. The microscope is placed on a moveable platform with fine adjustment in the x and y planes.

MT150 and MT-150LS are large surface x-y platforms made to carry the weight of a microscope and its attachments while providing fine motion control, up to 40 mm in both directions. Manual adjustments are made with ultrafine screw drives providing resolution of <1 µm. The platforms feature low profiles to add minimum height to the microscope.
