Z-Stack Imaging & Focusing: Faster with Piezo Nanopositioners
PIFOC nanopositioners for microscopy are piezo-actuated Z-scanners that achieve typically 10 times higher focusing speed & precision than motorized drives and thus provide higher-quality images faster.

Scanning the Objective
The compact, light and stiff objective scanner design provides very fast response and does not disturb the sample.

About PI
PI, the global leader in nanopositioning, has been ISO 9001 certified since 1994 and employs more than 500 people world wide. PIs patented piezo technology provides longer lifetime and higher performance than any other piezo device on the market. PIFOC was invented by PI 15 years ago and has since become the global standard in objective scanners, with thousands of units installed in the field. More information on Tools for Microscopes
