OptiScan III

Share this on social media:

Prior Scientific has introduced the OptiScan III, a powerful, entry level system for controlling the OptiScan range of motorised microscope stages and focusing devices.

Compatible with a wide range of both upright and inverted microscopes, the compact OptiScan III can be used to drive a motorised stage and a focus motor, while precision motor drive technology ensures quiet and smooth motion. A joystick provides users with precise and ergonomic control of their microscope accessories in the X, Y and Z axes.

The controller is compatible with most image analysis software packages facilitating simple integration between software and hardware, while the on-board plug-and-play facility automatically configures the system components. A free software development tool kit is available that includes DLL, a VB demo program and a full complement of ASCII commands.
