Universal Mounting Frame AK-Duo

Universal Mounting Frame AK-Duo

The flex­i­ble frame is designed to simul­ta­ne­ous­ly fix two cul­ture ves­sels on an upright micros­cope. This enables the micro­scop­ic con­trolled trans­fer of select­ed cells e.g. from a Petri dish to a slide. 


  • Four smooth run­ning, move­able bridges with a vari­able clamp­ing range for an easy and quick fix­a­tion of the cell cul­ture vessels
  • Fits into the Märzhäuser Scan­ning Stage 100 x 100 and into mechan­i­cal and motor­ized stages with a cut-out of 160 x 116 mm
  • For incu­ba­tion, the use in com­bi­na­tion with a large incu­ba­tor is recommended
