Microtool kit 2, 20 tools

These patent-pending MicroTools™ have tips made from soft, flexible microfabricated polymer films. The curvature of the tips gives them rigidity, but they can still easily be flexed. Tools designed for use with samples from a few micrometers to millimeter in size. These tools will cause far less damage to fragile samples than metal tools, and they are optically and x-ray transparent.Each tool is mounted on a 0.025"/0.64mm diameter non-magnetic stainless steel base. The base is fitted in a handle 0.7mm diameter, included in each kit.General use: for protein crystals, single cells and manipulating small samples.MicroTool™ Kit 2We separated the sample manipulator tools from Kit 1, modified and made them more durable. The tips of these tools are 15µm thick, so they generate more background x-ray scatter in the x-ray beam than the tools in Kit 1, However, there is still far less background scatter compared to other tools.MicroTip™: Two each 25 and...

MicroTool™ Kit 2

We separated the sample manipulator tools from Kit 1, modified and made them more durable. The tips of these tools are 15µm thick, so they generate more background x-ray scatter in the x-ray beam than the tools in Kit 1, However, there is still far less background scatter compared to other tools.

MicroTip™: Two each 25 and 50 micrometer diameter tips. Use to poke, separate and lift samples. Also use to reposition sample on a MicroMount or MicroMesh. Shape is designed to minimize disturbance of surrounding liquid, while not scarifying tip rigidity.

MicroSpoon™: Two small and one large sizes. Use to push, detach from surfaces, separate from a cluster, lift and transfer. Push down to flatten tip and slide under your sample.

MicroChisel™: Two small and one large sizes. Use to push, detach from surfaces, separate from a cluster, lift and transfer. Push down to flatten tip and slide under your sample.

MicroLasso™: Two small and large sizes. Use like a loop and lasso, pull and detach a sample from a surface.

MicroSieve™: Two small, two medium and large sizes. Use to sieve samples out of solution, and to lift, transfer and soak.

MicroSaw™: Two saws. Use in conjunction with a needle to cut and remove protein skins, gel, dense lipid phases and soft tissues from around your sample.
