Large Animal Stereotaxic Instruments for Dog and Monkey
The Harvard Apparatus Large Animal Stereotaxic Instrument for Dog and Monkey incorporates all of the features of the Standard U-Frame Stereotaxic Instrument into a design that is appropriate for most large laboratory animals. 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 two parallel rails can accommodate a total of six manipulator arms. This allows for multiple procedures to be performed simultaneously on a single animal in a single session. Furthermore, the unique swivel stand allows for the rail to be rotated 360˚ making it suitable for procedures and various angles.
- Adapters available for dog, cat, monkey and more
- Can fit up to 6 manipulator arms, 3 on each rail
- Resolution of 100 µm for manual versions and 10 µm for digital versions
This complete system comes with:
- Base plate
- 3-axis manipulator arm (dual option comes with two manipulator arms)
- Species adapter
- Ear bars
- Holder with corner clamp
The digital manipulator arm option provides the addition of a displacement transducer and a compact LCD display. Together, these additions allow real-time coordinate 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 electrical noise and making it suitable for electrophysiology experiments.
