Rigid Stands for Electrophysiology




  • Adjustable Rigid Stands for Electrophysiology Systems
  • Options for Mounting Platforms, Slides, Chambers, or Micromanipulators
  • Compatible with Upright and Inverted Microscopes

Features

  • Adjustable Vertical Axis, Four Offered Heights
  • Dovetail Design Firmly Mounts Platforms to Rigid Stands
  • Suitable for Upright and Inverted Microscopes
  • Quick-Lock Mechanism Allows for Easy Positioning
  • Baseplate Features Four Slots for 1/4"-20 (M6) Caphead Screws for Secure Table Mounting

Thorlabs’ Rigid Stands add flexibility and adaptability into our electrophysiology structures and platforms. They are ideal for mounting our micromanipulators and other electrophysiology accessories such as slide or chamber holders. Options include an M6-tapped platform, a chamber holder, a standard slide holder, or an insert holder. In each case, the platform or holder is held on a Ø1.5" solid stainless steel post by a secure dovetail clamp (see image to the left). Two 3/32" hex cap screws on the dovetail clamp lock or release the horizontal movement of the platform or holder. When the height collar is secured, the platform or holder can be rotated while keeping the vertical height constant. In addition to the stands, we also offer rigid stand post holders separately.

These Stands provide options and modularity for mounting physiology hardware and specimens into a physiology system. Each stand is available in four different heights (see chart above) and comes with either a simple platform or a holder. They make mounting hardware or specimens into an existing system quickly and easily, allowing the user to customize the experimental setup. Additionally, our accessories for the insert holder have options for mounting tapped plates (imperial or metric), blank plates, piezo microscopy stages, or slide/petri dish holders .

Rigid Stands with Platform

Each Thorlabs Rigid Stand includes a 200 mm × 60 mm platform with 24 M6-tapped holes. The platform, held on a Ø1.5" solid stainless steel post, can be rotated when the height collar is secured. In addition to rotation, the platform can be adjusted vertically over the range listed in the table in the Overview tab above, and the sliding dovetail design enables horizonal adjustment of the platform. The rotation and vertical adjustments are controlled by a quick-release lock; the height collar, when secured, will allow the platform to be rotated while maintaining the desired height. The video in the Overview tab above illustrates all these adjustments. The base has 1/4" (M6) counterbored slots that allow the base to be attached to a breadboard using 1/4"-20 (M6) caphead screws.

 

Rigid Stand Recording Chamber Holders

Thorlabs' Rigid Stand Recording Chamber Holders integrate well into an existing system or custom rig. They are designed to accomodate standard recording chambers and feature 15 M6-tapped holes. The holder, held on a Ø1.5" solid stainless steel post, can be rotated when the height collar is secured. In addition to rotation, it can be adjusted vertically over the range listed in the table in the Overview tab above, and the sliding dovetail design enables horizonal adjustment of the platform. The rotation and vertical adjustments are controlled by a quick-release lock; the height collar, when secured, will allow the platform to be rotated while maintaining the desired height. The video in the Overview tab above illustrates all these adjustments. The base has 1/4" (M6) counterbored slots that allow the base to be attached to a breadboard using 1/4"-20 (M6) caphead screws.

 

Rigid Stand Slide Holders

Thorlabs' Rigid Stand Slide Holders integrate well into an existing system or custom rig. The rectangular cutout is designed to accomodate standard recording chambers. Additionally this holder features 15 M6-tapped holes. The holder, held on a Ø1.5" solid stainless steel post, can be rotated when the height collar is secured. In addition to rotation, it can be adjusted vertically over the range listed in the table in the Overview tab above, and the sliding dovetail design enables horizonal adjustment of the platform. The rotation and vertical adjustments are controlled by a quick-release lock; the height collar, when secured, will allow the platform to be rotated while maintaining the desired height. The video in the Overview tab above illustrates all these adjustments. The base has 1/4" (M6) counterbored slots that allow the base to be attached to a breadboard using 1/4"-20 (M6) caphead screws.

 

Rigid Stand Insert Holders

Thorlabs' Rigid Stand Insert Holders integrate well into an existing system or custom rig. They are designed to accomodate the inserts sold here and feature eight M6-tapped holes and four counterbored holes for M6 (1/4"-20) cap screws. The inserts are held in place by four 5/64" hex cap screws and also fit into the MZS500-E Z-Axis Stage.

The holder, held on a Ø1.5" solid stainless steel post, can be rotated when the height collar is secured. In addition to rotation, it can be adjusted vertically over the range listed in the table in the Overview tab above, and the sliding dovetail design enables horizonal adjustment of the platform.

The rotation and vertical adjustments are controlled by a quick-release lock; the height collar, when secured, will allow the platform to be rotated while maintaining the desired height. The video in the Overview tab above illustrates all these adjustments. The base has 1/4" (M6) counterbored slots that allow the base to be attached to a breadboard using 1/4"-20 (M6) caphead screws.

 

Rigid Stand Post Holders

Thorlabs' Rigid Stand Post Holders make it easy to swap between different platforms or holders without repositioning hardware in an existing system. These post holders, each of which comes with a height collar, provide a stable and rugged structure for electrophysiology needs. They are offered in four stand heights (see mechanical drawing to the right for additional details) to meet the specific requirments of any system. Additionally, they are compatible with our rigid stand posts, holders, and platforms (sold above) as well as with our Ø1.5" posts. The base has 1/4" (M6) counterbored slots that allow the base to be attached to a breadboard using 1/4"-20 (M6) caphead screws.
