The Boxborough, Massachusetts-based company said its SmartStage XY is the first of its kind high-performance sample positioning stage with built-in motion controller, drive circuit and encoder, requiring no additional instrument space for motion control electronics.
“Leading-edge life science and diagnostic instruments demand more precision to identify ever-smaller features within their samples even as the instruments themselves shrink to smaller footprints” Vice President and General Manager of Dover Motion Mark Willingham said in a news release. “SmartStage XY enables both with its unique design and unparalleled accuracy at nearly the atomic level.”
Dover Motion, a subsidiary of Fortive (NYSE:FTV), makes precision stages and engineered motion solutions for the medical, life sciences, and diagnostics industries, specializing in the design of custom-engineered motion systems and modules.
