Microscope isolation plate

This light and compact passive microscope isolation plate platform has been specially designed to remove unwanted vibrations from instruments such as microscopes. Its T-shaped profile allows users to place their arms on either side of the platform, while the rear section is wide enough to accommodate a wide range of instruments. Platforms are made entirely from electroless nickel-plated aluminium parts and are fully non-magnetic. The top plate is 10mm thick with three damped isolators mounted to the underside. They meet the most stringent cleanliness requirements, such as Class 1 and are resistant to most forms of biological and chemical attack. Their simple shape makes them very easy to clean.Platform top plates rest on three pneumatic damped rolling diaphragm isolators. Typical building vibrations, which cause the most problems, are the cyclical ones between 7 and 30Hz.

This light and compact passive microscope isolation plate platform has been specially designed to remove unwanted vibrations from instruments such as microscopes. Its T-shaped profile allows users to place their arms on either side of the platform, while the rear section is wide enough to accommodate a wide range of instruments. Platforms are made entirely from electroless nickel-plated aluminium parts and are fully non-magnetic. The top plate is 10mm thick with three damped isolators mounted to the underside. They meet the most stringent cleanliness requirements, such as Class 1 and are resistant to most forms of biological and chemical attack. Their simple shape makes them very easy to clean.

Platform top plates rest on three pneumatic damped rolling diaphragm isolators. Typical building vibrations, which cause the most problems, are the cyclical ones between 7 and 30Hz. These isolators have a natural frequency of around 2Hz and start to effectively isolate vibrations from 7Hz upwards, greatly outperforming simple air cushion and rubber isolators which have much higher natural frequencies. The isolators are inflated using a conventional bicycle pump. When pressurised the isolators float the platform, effectively isolating the instrument from vibrations present on the work surface via a cushion of air.

The AMC-1 is a pump-up platform whereas the AMC-12S is an active self-levelling platform. The AMC-1 is very popular and suits most microscopes. AMC-1 is simply pumped up with a bicycle pump.
