The delta stage is a 3D printed x-y-z translation stage. As the optics do not move it is particularly suited to more complex imaging (phase, reflection, fluorescence microscopy).

Constructing the Delta Stage

  1. Printing the components
  2. Assembling the actuators
  3. Attaching the sample clips
  4. Attaching the motors
  5. Motor controller (Sangaboard)

Illumination modes

  1. Transmission illumination
  2. Reflection illumination

Connecting the components

  1. Raspberry Pi and Sangaboard base


You can control your microscope using the OpenFlexure software. The geometry of the Delta Stage is different to the standard OpenFlexure Microscope. So that the movement of the stage is correct, you will need to change the stage configuration:

  1. In OpenFlexure Connect, when connected to your Delta Stage microscope, click Settings.
  2. Under MICROSCOPE SETTINGS, click Stage.
  3. Change the Stage geometry dropdown to SangaStage (Delta).
