Accurate and Reproducible Results Leica LMT260 XY Scanning Stage

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 (LAS) or Tile Scans with LAS Advanced Fluorescence.

Leica LMT260 XY Scanning Stage

Key Features

High Precision

Two linear motors take care of the precision of results in applications with a stereo microscope. Their accuracy is impressive – you will receive results with an absolute position accuracy of less than 1 µm tolerance (sample weight < 0.5 kg).

High Repeatability

If several samples shall be imaged in one go, precise repeatability ensures the success of the experiment. The Leica LMT260 XY Scanning Stage offers a repeatability of less than 0.25 µm tolerance (sample weight < 0.5 kg).

Quicker Results

You want to observe the development process of several samples in one time-lapse experiment to increase your statistical population and to optimize the output of your experiments? The Leica LMT260 XY Scanning Stage with its repeatability and precision is ideally suited – and will save you time.

Absolute Measurements

As measurements are absolute, you will no longer have to reference after powering the stage. This makes handling the Leica LMT260 XY Scanning Stage easy and also allows switching the stage on during the experiment – your sample will remain in focus.
