Compact Stereotaxic Instruments for Rat Only
The Harvard Apparatus Compact Stereotaxic Instrument for Rat is a high quality stereotaxic instrument ideal for a number of applications. The dual-lead screw design ensures stable, accurate and smooth manipulations while the laser engraved scales offer ease of reading. The instrument offers 180° vertical rotation and 360° horizontal rotation, with the ability to lock at any angle. The unit creates a very small footprint; the rat base plate measures 40 x 25.5 cm.
- Small footprint
- Adapters for rat, mouse, mouse/neonatal rat and more
- Resolution of 100 µm for manual versions and 10 µm for digital versions
- Single or dual manipulator arm available in manual or digital
This complete system comes with:
- Base plate
- 3-axis manipulator arm
- Species adapter
- Ear bars
- Holder with corner clamp
Digital manipulator arms are available and provide the addition of a displacement transducer and compact LCD display. Together these additions allow real-time coordination presentation of all three axes to a resolution of 10 µm. The display has the ability to run on either AC power or battery power, drastically reducing electronic noise and making it suitable for electrophysiology experiments.
