The compact piezo micromanipulators from Sensapex provide ample range of movement and a full featured controller. Precise positioning, combined with inherently drift-free operation and the ability to position the manipulator close to the site, delivers outstanding stability. In addition, the small footprint allows multiple micromanipulator configurations to be placed in tight spaces.

The Sensapex was designed in cooperation with electrophysiologists to maximize the usability and productivity of your research. In addition to electrophysiology applications, this micromanipulator is suitable for any application where high precision positioning is required. The Sensapex micromanipultors come with a two-year limited warranty.


Triple Axis uM Micromanipulator

The uM micromanipultator is the latest from Sensapex. It comes with 3 axis movement, with a fourth axis available upon request. The uM micromanipultor has a very small foot-print and therefore is the best option for a clean setup or a setup with multiple manipulators on one stage. All Sensapex manipulators have Zero drift solid-state technology. Due to low moving mass of the manipulator it does not create vibrations like other manipulators mounted to the stage.
The unit's touch screen controller features an intuitive user interface that allows easy speed adjustment and manipulator selection. A single controller can drive two Rotary Wheels and an unlimited number of manipulators through the use of connector hubs. The system also allows for fast computer interface through Ethernet, paired with an Open source SDK and active development community.
The rotary wheel remote interface connects to the touch screen controller via USB connection. A Four knob version is available for setups with a 4th virtual or physical axis.

The key features of the manipulator include:

  • Compact plug-and-play systems with unlimited scalability
  • Zero drift solid-state drives with integrated closed-loop control
  • 20 mm range with 5 nm resolution and 20 nm repeatability
  • Virtual and physical 4th axis options
  • Easy to use electrode exchange mechanisms
  • Millisecond level synchrony for automated positioning
  • Load 0-150 grams

The manipulator accepts EPC 10 and EPC 8 headstages. The system can be extended to use as many manipulators and is only limited by the space on your stage.

Systems include uM three axis manipulator with bolt-on mounting base, touch screen control unit, 3 wheel rotary wheel interface, flip/side rotate module add-on, and dove-tail headstage adapter.


Triple Axis SMX Manipulator

The SMX micromanipultator is the first manipulator from Sensapex. It comes with 3 axis movement. As well the uM micromanipultor it has a very small foot-print and therefore is the best option for a clean setup or a setup with multiple manipulators on one stage. Due to low moving mass of the manipulator it does not create vibrations like other manipulators mounted to the stage.
The control unit provides an ergonomic and intuitive interface for precise positioning. The main display shows the ID of the micromanipulator being operated, along with the current position in micrometers, the speed setting, and the battery status. Large rotary knobs are connected to optical encoders controlling each axes individually.

The key features include:

  • 20 mm range with 7 nm resolution (XYZ)
  • Zero drift solid-state technology
  • Totally powered off during recordings
  • Easy-to-use pipette exchange mechanisms
  • Compact battery operated controller
  • Up to 14 manipulator systems

The manipulator accepts EPC 10 and EPC 8 headstages. The system can be extended to use as many manipulators and is only limited by the space on your stage.

A variety of mounting options are available including stage or rail mounting. Additionally, manipulators can be rotated or flipped back to replace the electrode.

Systems include SMX manipulator and triple rotary knob control unit.
