Mad City Labs

Mad City Labs

Mad City Labs, Inc is a leading manufacturer of flexure based nanopositioning systems capable of sub-nanometer positioning resolution. Our product line covers the entire spectrum of nanopositioning capabilities while maintaining a leadership role in multi-axis stages for high speed optical microscopy imaging. Mad City Labs design engineers use 3D CAD and finite element analysis to produce nanopositioners which combine long ranges of motion with exceptional linearity, orthogonality, and stability. Our in-house CNC machining centers provide complete control of mechanical assembly production and allow Mad City Labs to design and fabricate custom systems with minimal engineering costs and short lead times. We deliver the tools for nanotechnology in 30 to 45 days and provide the highest level of customer service and satisfaction in the industry. Applications for nanopositioners include high speed confocal imaging, AFM, NSOM, scanning probe microscopy, fiber positioning, single molecule spectroscopy, single molecule tracking, high resolution optical alignment, and lithography.

Nature Protocols Paper on Mad City Labs MicroMirror TIRF System

MMTIRFphoto 

Nature Protocols has published a paper from researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and Brandeis University about the colocalization single-molecule spectroscopy (CoSMoS) method for studying cellular machines using the Mad City Labs MicroMirror TIRF system.

The technique of micro-mirror TIRF (total internal reflection fluorescence) microscopy is the only proven method to study the ordered assembly and function of multi-component biomolecular machines. The Mad City Labs' MicroMirror TIRF system is part of a single molecule imaging instrument portfolio and draws on Mad City Labs expertise with high precision, high stability nanopositioning systems and microscopy solutions.
