stereotaxic Instruments

 

This standard stereotaxic instrument meets the experimental needs of rats and mice primarily, but it can be adapted for other animals.

The stereotaxic instrument is fully equipped. The U-frame design provides stability and adaptability.

Dual-lead screws ensure stable, precise and smooth handling. Standard stereotaxic instruments include a left 3-axis manipulator arm, rat / mouse adapter (depending on model), traditional ear bars (18˚), and standard probe holder. Other accessories are available such as a second manipulator arm, rat or mouse adapters, 45 ° ear bars, digital upgrade with precise display (10µm), etc.

adaptators

 

 

Mouse-neonatal-rat-adaptor

Mouse/Neonatal Rat Adaptor

The ear bars of this adaptor are made of resin and the tips are specially treated, which ensures that the head is held firmly without damage to the skull.

There are scales on the incisor and the earbars. The height can be adjusted flexibly, which is good for experiments from different angles.

Considering there is no ear canal for neonatal rat, this adaptor employs a cheekbone locker to replace the ear bars.
This design provides noninvasive and stable way to hold the neonatal rat.

Mouse-adaptor

Mouse Adaptor

It holds the mouse head by a palate and incisor, and offers vertical regulation to make the head level or at certain angle.
The Vertical adjustable range from +10mm to -20mm, with 100μm resolution; Horizontal adjustable range of 43.5mm;

Horizontal rotatable range of 35°.

 

rat-adaptor

Rat Adaptor

It holds rat head firmly through incisor, nose clip and ear bars.
This adaptor can be adjusted 30 mm vertically along dovetail slide with 100μm resolution and 50mm horizontally, which makes it applicable for rats of different weight.

 

Ear Bars

 

Barres auriculaires

Mouse ear bars, neonatal rat, rat with a 35 mm scale at 1 mm pitch. 6.15 mm square bar.

For rats, 18° and 45° model with rounded tip of 0.8mm radius. For mice, 60° model.

Non-Rupture rubber or cuff models are available for mice and neonatal rat.

 

Scalability

 

stereotaxie numerique

All manual stereotaxic instruments can be upgraded to digital stereotaxic instruments (10µm), and can accommodate a second three-dimensional manipulator.
