These patent pending designs Goniometer Bases are unlike other bases available on market. Goniometer Bases tightly capture the MicroRT™ tubing to allow seamless room-temperature and low-temperature data collection.
We offer several different base styles that are compatible with our MicroRT™ tubing and with standard cryo-tools, cryo-vials, magnetic goniometer head mounts, and most automating hardware.
- Base B1 is available in two versions: B1 (with flat ledge) and B1A (without the ledge, for ALS-style grippers used at ALS, NSLS and CHESS)
- Base B2 is a copper post-style base that accepts 11/12 mm MicroMounts™. Available only with the flat edge.
- Base B3 is available in three versions: B3 for 19 mm MicroMounts™, with the flat ledge; B3A for 19 mm MicroMount™, without the ledge; and B3S for SPINE length MicroMount™, without ledge.
- B4 is a 3 mm diameter "brass pin" style base, with the smaller central hole to tightly hold MicroMount™ and an extension to capture MicroRT™ tubing.
Base B1 – B3 are available in package of 1, 3, 6, and 20. Base 4 is available in package of 20 and 100.
