PZ-2000FT Series XYZ Automated Stage with Piezo Z-Axis Top Plate
About the PZ-2000FT
The PZ-2000FT series is an integrated top-plate option available for many of our XY stages. When paired with our control electronics, it provides a fast, high resolution, and highly repeatable means of controlling focus for 3D samples. Because the PZ-2000FT replaces the standard top-plate of the stage, it still accepts standard K-style sample inserts for slides, various Petri dishes, multiwell plates, etc. Three stacks of piezo elements move 150, 300, or 500 μm with near nanometer accuracy.
