The Eppendorf TransferMan 4r micromanipulator combines an intuitive user interface with precision for rapid and simple microinjection.
The direct transmission of movement in all directions is designed to give a ’real time’ and is claimed to make the latest instrument in Eppendorf’s micromanipulator line the ideal platform for a broad range of applications, including microinjection and manipulation of suspension cells such as oocytes and blastocysts.
The DualSpeed joystick extends the precise and intuitive direct movement control with an additional dynamic speed mode for covering longer distances or speeding up sample processing.
The multifunctional TransferMan 4r simplifies individual workflows by offering four predefined application-specific user interfaces such as ’cell transfer’ and ’DNA injection’.
Users also have the option of programming additional methods for their individual application needs.
The ergonomically designed control board and DualSpeed joystick mean the TransferMan 4r is tailored to provide precision during cell handling and manipulation.
It is highly resistant to vibration and drift during use, delivering exceptional direct movement control for risk- and stress-less working.
In addition, the instrument has a programmable Z-axis limit to prevent accidental capillary breakage. Capillary and angle settings are operated single handedly for increased convenience.
With a flexible assembly and mounting concept, installation of the TransferMan 4r is possible on all common microscopes.
Semi-automatic injections are enabled by combination with the electronic Eppendorf microinjectors. The newly introduced electronic coupling with the Eppendorf PiezoXpert enables semi-automatic piezo-supported cell penetration.
