    Product Documents

    The HLD117 series of flat top stages with linear motor technology for inverted research microscopes set new standards for convenience and performance. Designed to seamlessly integrate with other items such as micromanipulators and incubation chambers, the top surface of the stage is completely free of obstruction. This provides a highly ergonomic platform with exceptionally easy access to the sample area. The HLD117 incorporates constant contact bearings giving the lowest friction and smoothest drive available.

    The HLD117 offers:

    Ultra Quiet Operation
    Can you hear that? Neither can we! Even at high speeds (up to 300 mm/sec) the linear DC servo motors are almost silent.

    The Highest Precision
    With an impressive 0.15 micron repeatability and 50 nanometer linear scales, the HLD117 is the best microscope stage on the market today. Optional 10 nanometer resolution linear scales provide flawless preision for the ultimate resolution.

    Low Profile Design
    The low profile flat top design allows ample room to access microscope adjustments.


    The HLD117's offer superior versaltility and are an ideal solution for:

    Slide Scanning
    Built for performance with unmatched acceleration rates and speeds, the HLD117 is the best choice for either start/stop point to point imaging or for continuous motion and velocity controlled scanning applications. The ProScan controller with TTL I/O and triggering functions provides constant speed movements with extremely low velocity ripple for picture perfect synchronization between automation and imaging software.

    Multipoint Imaging
    Whether your cells are fixed or in solution Prior linear drive stages make multiple position imaging a breeze. Image acquisition from multiple points scattered across a wide area is faster than previously thought possible. Scanning a 96 well plate in about 15 seconds? It’s here. Want more data? Add Prior’s Nanopositioning Piezo Z stage and collect three dimensional data at each position in milliseconds!

    High Content Screening
    Combine the fastest most precise stage ever made by Prior, solid state LED light sources, PLW20 Well Plate Loader, ProScan TTL triggering, your microscope and imaging software and you have the resolution, automation and speed, speed, speed needed for the acquisition of high content screening multi-parametric data.

    Software Integration
    Integration into existing imaging software could not be easier.Ê The HLD117 linear motor stages from Prior Scientific respond to the same command set as previous Prior stages allowing them to work with existing applications with little or no required software modifications. For those starting from scratch, a comprehensive Software Development Kit is provided that makes integration with 3rd party software packages very straightforward. The mostÊ powerful and most flexible positioning systems for microscopy applications awaits your integration. We welcome the opportunity to work with you!
