Objective positioner: MIPOS 500

Product Announcement from Piezosystem Jena, Inc.

Objective positioner: MIPOS 500-Image


  • 500 µm adjustment range
  • nm resolution
  • compact design
  • parallelogram construction
  • high resonant frequency
  • easy to fix onto microscopes
  • "upside-down" version available for inverted microscopes

The MIPOS 500 was developed for finely adjusting micro objectives. The maximum motion is 500 µm. The resolution of the MIPOS 500 is very high and, in practice, only limited by the voltage noise of the power supply.A special integrated preload design results in a very small angular deviation, a highly parallel large range of motion, and a high resonant frequency.

All standard threads for Zeiss, Leica, Nikon, Olympus etc. are available for the top and bottom sides of the MIPOS series. Mounting this system onto the microscope is very easy - screw a thread ring into the microscope and mount the MIPOS 500 on this ring with a clamping screw.
