Prior Scientific, a manufacturer of microscopy solutions and precision optical and electromechanical equipment, announce the launch of the CS200 line of joysticks.

"We are pleased to introduce these new joysticks and touchscreen which have a modern look and feel. Our customers also asked for a more cost-effective device and we have delivered with the CS200" said Thomas Freda, CEO at Prior Scientific. “The optional TS200 touchscreen adds control capabilities that far exceed what the previous PS3J100 could do”. Together these new devices allow users to choose what they want and need for their unique applications.”
