The Sutter MT-1000 systems consist of a microscope translator and three independent stands. Two MT-75 stands used for each manipulator and a similar stand, the MT-150 holds the tissue chamber. The classic design features freestanding columns that provide rock solid mounting for the tissue recording chamber and multiple micromanipulators. Many prefer this methodology as it maximizes working room for adjusting the microscope and changing pipettes. Furthermore, the independent stand design minimizes movement-related cross talk between manipulators.
The MT-1000 uses a manual translator. At the core of the MT-1000 translator systems is the MT-500 X-Y manual translation table. It is designed to allow movement of a microscope’s optics with respect to the fixed stage(s). This methodology was developed by electrophysiologists recording from tissue slice preparations. The translator allows visualization and/or imaging of multiple tissue locations while maintaining multiple stable recordings from the preparation. Such a system is also useful for experiments on cells in culture where one wishes to monitor several cells not in the same field of view, e.g., recording from pre and post synaptic neurons in culture and/or imaging one cell while recording from or stimulating another.
