The manual actuator is an optional accesory for the mardtb goniostat. It allows for sliding the cryohead of a cooling device slightly up and down, just enough for getting enough room for mounting a sample but without moving a sample completely out of the cold stream. The actuator is designed for single hand operation and is easy to install on any existing mardtb goniostat. The unit consists of:
manual cryo actuator with Oxford Cryosystems cooler mounted on mardtb
mardtb manual cryo actuator: detail
  • Translation stage with a range of approx. 20 mm
  • Manual brake for holding the cryo-device in the "up" position
  • Hard brake for preventing slippage of the cryo-device into the sample
  • Adapter for Oxford Cryosystems, Oxford Instruments and Rigaku coolers (other types upon request)
  • Mounting bracket for mardtb goniostat
  • Installation manual
