Standard U-Frame Stereotaxic Instrument for Rat
Stereotaxic surgeries on rats can be made simple with the complete Harvard Apparatus Standard U-Frame Stereotaxic Instrument for rats. This complete system offers everything you have come to expect in a high quality stereotaxic instrument. 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.
- Standard U-Frame design
- Adapters for rat, mouse, mouse/neotatal 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
- Rat species adapter
- 18° or 45° ear bars for rats
- Holder with corner clamp
The ear bars are designed to penetrate the deep into the ear canal penetrating the tympanic membrane for a more secure hold.
Digital single and dual manipulator arm (with two three-axis manipulator arms) options are available. The digital arm provides the addition of a displacement transducer. 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.
