X-Stage Realignment

We have, unfortunately, experienced occasional misalignment of the dual drive, X stages. Some recent modifications to the motor parameters have hopefully eliminated this problem though we do not yet know since the problem occurs fairly infrequently. Such a misalignment will become obvious by making it impossible for the instrument to pick up large numbers of fibers. If that is the case, the OT should inspect the instrument to verify that the stages are indeed misaligned and, if so, should proceed to realign them.

Such a misalignment should be reported via email to the staff contacts and support personnel.

NOTE: This operation should only be done by trained personnel.
