WPI HS6 High Resolution Micromanipulator

Chosen worldwide for high resolution microrecording

World Precision Instruments

  • Manual controls & stepper motor drives in all 3 axes
  • Superb resolution
  • Rack and pinion drive
  • Simple, precise, durable
  • 5µm resolution
  • Engineered for stability and built on a 5.5kg steel plate
  • For direct table top use

Engineered for stability, and built on a 5.5kg steel plate, this instrument is chosen worldwide for high resolution microrecording, such as patch clamping, and other research requiring solid, drift-free performance. A superior tool in its own right, HS6 serves equally well as a base for other precision microdrives. HS6 can be bolted directly to a lab fixture or vibration-free platform.


Resolution is extremely high - each graduation on its large micrometer barrel indicates just 5 micron movements. Rach and pinion drive, V-shaped gruideways, and cross roller bearings give sure, repeatable movements without sideplay, slipping or sticking. All contact parts are milled or hardened steel.


A flexible ball-joint assembly allows the electrode to be positioned at any angle relative to the x, y or z axis. The entire manipulator tilts forward to 25° allowing rapid coarse adjustment of the electrode, and allowing cell penetration along the axis of any of the micrometers.


Simple, precise and durable, the HS6 will provide years of dependable performance. Available as a motorised version also.
