Thorlabs' Low-Profile Motorized XY Microscopy Stage has been designed as a drop-in replacement for the manual stages found on select Nikon, Olympus, and Cerna® microscopes to provide motorized XY positioning of microscopy samples. A complete stage package consists of the stage itself, a controller, mounting brackets, and optional accessories; all of these items need to be purchased separately. The table below outlines the items that should be purchased to form a stage package compatible with a particular microscope. Alternatively, optional mounting adapters enable a stage to be bolted to an optical table or breadboard as part of a custom-built microscope setup or for use in typical photonics applications. 

The LPXY1 microscopy stage uses stepper motors with open-loop control to provide a compact, durable, and cost-effective scanning stage for microscopy. The stage is constructed without the external motor housings to allow for easy sample access, and uses stepper motors to provide optimal low-speed performance with high positioning stability. With no moving electronics, the LPXY1 stage is designed to ensure maximum lifetime and durability, making the stage a reliable and cost-effective option for routine positioning in microscopy. The stage can also be combined with our Z-Axis Piezo Stage to form an XYZ stage ideally suited for laser scanning microscopy. For applications requiring high-speed, Thorlabs offers High-Speed Motorized XY Scanning Stages, with Item # MLS203-1 having identical microscope compatibility as the LPXY1 scanning stage (see table below).

Calibration Files
Each LPXY1 scanning stage is calibrated during manufacturing. Calibration enables the controller to correct for any mechanical errors present in the system. Mechanical components, such as the lead screw and linkages, can be machined only within a certain tolerance. These mechanical errors result in deviations of the actual position from the commanded position. However, the deviations are repeatable and can be compensated for using the Kinesis software and included calibration files. These files are used by the software to convert the position entered by the user into the required mechanical motion. The calibration files can be downloaded by clicking on the red Docs icon () next to the Item # below and entering your device's serial number under "Download Calibration Data."

The use of calibration files is optional. Without them, the repeatability and resolution of the stage are unaffected, but no compensations are made to enhance the accuracy. Each stage is calibrated at the factory, giving a typical on-axis accuracy of <5 µm without the use of the calibration files.

Controller Option
The LPXY1 scanning stage is compatible with any of the BSC200 series Benchtop Stepper Motor Controllers. For dual-axis control, Thorlabs recommends the BSC202 two-channel controller. See below for a brief overview, or click here to view the full presentation for this controller. Please note that while the BSC202 controller is compatible with both Thorlabs' Kinesis and APT™ software suites, the LPXY1 stage should only be driven with the Kinesis software to provide the correct current level in the motors. Use of the APT software may cause mechanical failure. 

Specimen Holders and Accessories
We offer a range of adapters to allow the positioning of standard microscope slides, multiwell plates, petri dishes, and mounted metallurgical specimens. Please see below for details.

Thorlabs' Kinesis® software can be used to control devices in the Kinesis or APT™ family, which covers a wide range of motion controllers ranging from small, low-powered, single-channel drivers (such as the K-Cubes and T-Cubes) to high-power, multi-channel, modular 19" rack nanopositioning systems (the APT Rack System).

The Kinesis Software features new .NET controls which can be used by 3rd party developers working in the latest C#, Visual Basic, LabVIEW™ or any .NET compatible languages to create custom applications. Low level DLL libraries are included for applications not expected to use the .NET framework. A Central Sequence Manager supports integration and synchronization of all Thorlabs motion control hardware.

By providing these common software platforms, Thorlabs has ensured that users can easily mix and match any of the APT and Kinesis controllers in a single application, while only having to learn a single set of software tools. In this way, it is perfectly feasible to combine any of the controllers from the low-powered, single-axis to the high-powered, multi-axis systems and control all from a single, PC-based unified software interface.

The software packages allow two methods of usage: graphical user interface (GUI) utilities for direct interaction with and control of the controllers 'out of the box', and a set of programming interfaces that allow custom-integrated positioning and alignment solutions to be easily programmed in the development language of choice.

Thorlabs' Kinesis® software features new .NET controls which can be used by third-party developers working in the latest C#, Visual Basic, LabVIEW™, or any .NET compatible languages to create custom applications.

C#
This programming language is designed to allow multiple programming paradigms, or languages, to be used, thus allowing for complex problems to be solved in an easy or efficient manner. It encompasses typing, imperative, declarative, functional, generic, object-oriented, and component-oriented programming. By providing functionality with this common software platform, Thorlabs has ensured that users can easily mix and match any of the Kinesis controllers in a single application, while only having to learn a single set of software tools. In this way, it is perfectly feasible to combine any of the controllers from the low-powered, single-axis to the high-powered, multi-axis systems and control all from a single, PC-based unified software interface.

For a collection of example projects that can be compiled and run to demonstrate the different ways in which developers can build on the Kinesis motion control libraries, click on the links below. Please note that a separate integrated development environment (IDE) (e.g., Microsoft Visual Studio) will be required to execute the Quick Start examples. The C# example projects can be executed using the included .NET controls in the Kinesis software package (see the Kinesis Software tab for details).

LabVIEW
LabVIEW can be used to communicate with any Kinesis- or APT-based controller via .NET controls. In LabVIEW, you build a user interface, known as a front panel, with a set of tools and objects and then add code using graphical representations of functions to control the front panel objects. The LabVIEW tutorial, provided below, provides some information on using the .NET controls to create control GUIs for Kinesis- and APT-driven devices within LabVIEW. It includes an overview with basic information about using controllers in LabVIEW and explains the setup procedure that needs to be completed before using a LabVIEW GUI to operate a device.

Can this product be used in nitrogen atmosphere at temperatures ranging from -40°C to +40°C?
cstroud  (posted 2024-06-04 07:02:39.0)
Thanks for reaching out. Our stages are usually rated for operational temperature ranges of +5 degrees to +40 degrees (non-condensing), along with the controllers. The storage temperature would also have a similar range. Anything outside of this could cause a failure due to expansion/contraction of the stage, and changes in viscosity of the grease used. We will contact you directly to discuss this further.
