PI is offering the Pifoc piezo Z-drive for the fast positioning of microscopy objectives or samples with a clear aperture of up to 29mm, enabling the creation of 3D images of living tissue.

These versions of the P-725 and P-721 stage series allow travel ranges up to 400um while offering high dynamics and nanometre-level position resolution.

For focusing purposes, either the imaging optics or the sample can be moved.

Pifoc piezo Z-drives for the objective can be very compact in size and do not affect the sample while focusing.

Features include: response times of a few milliseconds; resolution of a few nanometres; and simple integration in existing microscopy systems.

Screening tasks in biotechnology, medical diagnostics or pharmacy, for example, require the analysis of up to a few hundreds of samples.

The focusing of the individual samples, therefore, has to be fast.

In confocal microscopy, images of samples are generated in different focal planes and collated to one 3D image using software.

For this purpose, the position resolution of the piezo Z-drive has to be in the range of 10nm (0.01um).
