CT-10 Low Height Vibration Isolation Platform

The Compact Tabletop (CT-10) utilizes Minus K's innovative patented technology, delivering exceptional performance within a compact form factor measuring only 2.7 inches in height and approximately 12.6 inches in depth and width. This unit is as tall as Minus K's CT-2 and offers similar horizontal performance with additional payload ranges for smaller instruments.

This mechanical isolator is completely passive and offers 10-100 times better performance than a full-size air table. It does this without needing any electricity and air.

This vibration isolation platform is extremely user-centric and features Minus K's signature 0.5 Hz vertical natural frequency and ~1.5 Hz horizontal natural frequency. Only two adjustments are required. The CT-10 is ideal for all types of benchtop microscopes.

This is the thinnest, most convenient, lightweight, and user-friendly isolator ever made available that can achieve this level of performance.
