Nano-Bio Series
The Nano-Bio Series are ultra low profile, two axis piezo nanopositioning systems. The low profile design allows the Nano-Bio Series to be easily integrated into existing inverted microscopes, AFMs and other instrumentation where space is limited. The large center aperture allows the Nano-Bio to accommodate the lenses of all major microscope manufacturers. The Nano-Bio Series includes internal position sensors with proprietary PicoQ® technology to provide absolute, repeatable position measurement and picometer accuracy under closed loop feedback control. The Nano-Bio100, Nano-Bio200, and Nano-Bio300 are constructed from aluminum and are ideal for optical microscopy. The invar Nano-Bio2M has increased thermal stability, reduced overall size, and is an easily implemented closed-loop scanner upgrade for instruments using Veeco NanoScope controllers (needs a Nano-Drive® controller with the AR-10 option).

Mad City Labs, Inc
Mad City Labs, Inc has been a leading manufacturer of flexure based piezo nanopositioning systems capable of sub-nanometer positioning resolution since 1998. Our piezo nanopositioning product line covers the entire spectrum of piezo nanopositioning capabilities while maintaining a leadership role in multi-axis stages for high speed optical microscopy imaging. Mad City Labs engineers use 3D CAD and finite element analysis to produce piezo nanopositioners which combine long ranges of motion with exceptional linearity, orthogonality, and stability. Our in-house CNC machining centers and wire EDMs provide complete control of mechanical assembly production and allow Mad City Labs to design and fabricate custom systems with minimal engineering costs and short lead times. We deliver the tools for nanotechnology in 30 to 45 days and provide the highest level of customer service and satisfaction in the industry. We provide innovative and practical solutions for today’s demanding biotechnology and nanotechnology applications. Most Mad City Labs piezo nanopositioners can be controlled by our high speed USB 2.0 interface. Applications for nanopositioners include super resolution microscopy, high speed confocal imaging, AFM, NSOM, scanning probe microscopy, fiber positioning, single molecule spectroscopy, single molecule/particle tracking, high resolution optical alignment, SR optical microscopy, sub-diffraction limit microscopy, nanoscopy and lithography.
