Manual 3D Sample Stage

The Manual 3D sample stage provides a cost-efficient and robust means of moving the sample in 3D.

The simplest and most cost-efficient focusing solution for the openFrame is a three-axis manual microstage that moves the sample while keeping the objective fixed. 

This solution is often used in a teaching environment, or when simplicity of the system or budget constraints are paramount.  As it uses micrometre drives then any or all axis can be retrospectively motorised, if demands change.
