Sample Manipulation and Measurement - µTools™
Each tool is mounted on a 0.025"/ 0.64 mm diameter nonmagnetic solid stainless steel rod. Hold them in a standard 0.7 mm mechanical pencil (included with each kit), or in a micromanipulator.
MicroTool™ Kit 1, the original kit, contains 20 tools for common sample manipulation tasks. These include dislodging samples from slides and plates separating samples, holding and transferring samples during soaks, rigidly holding samples at room temperature, cutting protein skins, gels and lipid phases, and measuring sample dimensions. The polymer film is 12.5 micrometers thick and produces little background X-ray scatter, so you can also use these tools to hold your sample in an X-ray beam.
MicroTool™ Kit 2 contains 20 tools for common sample manipulation tasks. The tips of these tools are 18 micrometers thick. This makes them more durable and rigid, but also increases background X-ray scatter.
MicroTool™ Kit 3 contains 20 tools for sample measurements. Two tool designs allow measurement of linear sample dimensions, and two allow measurement of both linear and angular dimensions. Use them to accurately measure small and fragile samples, including those contained in optically distorting liquid drops.
