The OptiScanTMIII system from Prior Scientific (Rockland, MA) is a stage and focus system for routine microscopy procedures requiring high precision. It offers full control in the X, Y, and Z axes via compatibility with OptiScan motorized stages for both inverted and upright microscopes, and Prior’s non-encoded focus motors and FB series motorized focus blocks. The system offers an XY step size of 1.0 micron and Z axis step size of 0.1 micron. S-curve acceleration curve provides smooth movement of the stage. Both the focus and stage can be controlled by joystick or via computer using RS-232 or USB connection. The system is fully compatible with the vast majority of common imaging software. A software development toolkit is also provided with the system.
