Narishige's MN-151 is a light, compact, and easy to operate manual manipulator with both fine and coarse movement including a convenient joystick for fine movement in the X-Y plane.
It allows coarse control of movement in the X, Y, and Z directions. The MN-151 also incorporates fine, joystick-controlled movements in the X-Y plane with both a tension adjustment and a ratio adjustment ring to allow the user to customize the fine movement to their application. A mechanical knob with 5 um gradations provides fine mechanical movement in the Z axis making vertical adjustment both easy and accurate.
One of the most common and heavily used manipulators on the market, the MN-151 is very versatile, and can be mounted in a variety of orientations by a bar mount system with either a magnetic stand or mounting adaptor. The manipulator can be easily mounted on either the left or right sides of a microscope stage.
It can be used to manipulate the primary needle holder in applications such as microinjection with C. elegans, Drosophila, Zebrafish and Xenopus microinjection. It also can be used in other applications including mammalian oocyte microinjection, where it can be used as a versatile holding-pipette manipulator, yeast tetrad microdissection, physics, chemistry, and engineering.
An included B-8B ball joint can be simply attached so that approach angles can be set without interfering with the joystick operation as well as allowing for increased degrees of freedom in operation.
* For attachment to a microscope, a P-1A height adjustment plate (included) and a suitable mounting adaptor (sold separately) are required.
* The B-8B ball joint included with the micromanipulator can be replaced by MMO-220A one-axis oil hydraulic micromanipulator (sold separately).
