A range of computer controlled XY mapping stages are available for the HORIBA Scientific range of Raman microscope systems.
These provide automated stage movement for Raman mapping and array screening.
Only very high stability and precision stages are used to ensure the full confocal spatial resolution of these instruments is exploited to the full.
0.1 µm step resolution is standard, with large translation XY, multiwell plate and large capacity versions available for specialized applications.
Full Z axis control can be obtained through either a Z axis translation unit, or the ultra-fine Piezo adjust system.
