Scientifica LBM-7 Manual Manipulator
A precise manual micromanipulator with seven axes of movement. The high resolution of 1 µm makes this manipulator an extremely useful positioning tool.

Extension Bracket (LBM-2005-00)
This bracket provides the freedom to position the probe in difficult places whilst maintaining absolute stability.
Sliding Bracket (LBM-2010-00)
Safely slide your pipette or electrode in and out of the experimental area with 75 mm of travel to make pipette exchange even easier.
Extra Smooth Adjusters (LBM-2025-00)
This manipulator is supremely adjustable in all seven axes, but for scientists who want even more sensitivity, larger diameter adjuster knobs perfectly complement the standard device.
LBM-7 Fixed Mounting Bracket (IVM-505-00)
Allows the user to mount the IVM on the LBM-7 either to the approach axis stage or to a sliding carriage attached to the approach axis stage. If mounted on the approach axis stage it can only mount in the same axis as the stage. If mounted on the sliding bracket it can be mounted at 90º or in the same axis as the approach axis.
LBM-7 Adjustable Mounting Bracket (IVM-510-00)
This allows the approach axis of the LBM-7 to be removed and the IVM be mounted in its place. It can then be rotated and locked in position at the correct angle.
Riser Block for the LBM 7
A 70 mm block to raise the height of the manipulator.
Post and Platform for MMBP (PP-3400-00)
Used to mount the MicroStar onto the Scientifica MMBP
Electrode Holding Bar (EHB-500)
Electrode/probe holding bar with v groove.
