The classic micromanipulator developed by Sir Huxley many years ago is
still considered by many investigators
to be the finest manual micromanipulator available. The MP-85 offers
the advantage of a very large range
of movement with its built-in coarse
manipulator and precise submicron
movement with the fine controls.
Coarse positioning is achieved with a
three axis manipulator mounted on
top. The ultrafine positioning is accomplished with the large micrometers mounted on the base. These micrometers provide smooth, precise
movement through a 10:1 reduction
mechanism.
The brass and stainless steel construction of the MP-85 makes for a very
heavy and solid micromanipulator
with excellent damping properties.
This exceptionally stable design is
ideal for patch clamp recording, intracellular recording, or any other application that is intolerant of drift.
The MP-85 is chrome-plated and anodized to prevent corrosion. The J.R.
Wall designed rotating base is machined from solid stainless steel with
a brass spindle; a thin Teflon washer
provides for the bearing surface.
Please contact Sutter Instrument for
any additional information on the
suitability and use of the MP-85
micromanipulator for your specific
application.

Dual springing of the moment
arms to insure zero backlash
and zero torsion.
Fifteen degree stackable
wedges for tilting the manipulator.
The micromanipulator is
mounted on a precision
rotating base featuring a
positive stop and lock.
A set of three magnetic feet for
increased stability.
The coarse movement is an all
cross-roller bearing design
consisting of coarse X, Y, and Z
with an additional fine X
motion.
The micromanipulator can be
ordered in either a right or left
handed version.
One inch thick, chrome plated,
solid brass riser blocks.
