You need high precision for your time-lapse experiments such as mark and find or multi-well screenings? We know that every micrometer counts when imaging several samples at different XY positions. The Leica LMT260 XY Scanning Stage sports a repeatability of 0.25 µm for a sample weight below 0.5 kg and still of 1 µm for a heavy load of 1.5 kg – all this at a resolution of 5 nm.
The Leica LMT260 XY Scanning Stage uses a magneto-resistive measurement system and two linear motors to produce such accurate and reproducible results with stereo microscopes. Two linear motors move the stage to the point of interest in X and Y direction swiftly and quietly. Yet, the stage can be moved manually any time. Due to absolute measurements, users will not need to reference after initializing the stage and may concentrate on their work.
The stage is also ideally suited when it comes to scanning large areas with high magnification. The software divides the sample into a grid. The stage moves along this grid to the points of interest and the camera takes pictures. The images are joined to form one high-resolution picture by the software modules Multistep of Leica Application Suite (
