The Lab Standard Stereotaxic Instrument is ideal for researchers in need of a
versatile, reliable instrument for stereotaxic procedures with small animals.
Precision alignment when using the Lab Standard ensures accurate placement of
electrodes, micropipettes, and other devices.
The time-proven 'U'-Frame design concept, sturdy construction, and adaptability
to most model species make this the best choice for a stereotaxic instrument.
Easily Read Scales: All scales are oriented to be read easily from the open end
of the 'U'. This is the position from which most scientists prefer to work. The
numerals on the scales are larger, and therefore more easily read. The scale
lines are laser engraved, to allow finest possible permanent marking of scales
on all 3 axes. Precise alignment with facing vernier scales gives accurate
resolution to 0.1mm.
Smooth Movements: The Lab Standard's exclusive, triple lead screws allow the
fastest positioning possible, consistent with lining up the scales easily at a
Versatility of Positioning: The manipulator arm controls medio-lateral and
vertical positioning via lead screws, and antero-posterior movement via dovetail
slide movement, with 80 mm of travel possible in each direction. A Universal
Joint allows the investigator to change the angle of the probe up to 90o in
either the antero-posterior or medio-lateral planes. The improved locking
mechanism on the Lab Standard will hold any angle position without slippage.
And of course, it also provides an absolute lock at 90o vertical.
In addition, a swing joint allows the investigator to conveniently swing the
manipulator arm and probe out of the way for performing a procedure ? then
reliably return the probe to the same point.
Convenient for Electrophysiology: Integral brass bushings in the manipulator arm
allow grounding directly to the closest metal on the manipulator arm?even the
Dual Manipulator Model: The 51603 Dual Manipulator Lab Standard has
3-dimensional manipulator arms on both sides, the second manipulator arm being
properly reversed as to handedness. Dual manipulators are very useful in studies
in which double injections or simultaneous stimulation and recording are
Included Components: Both the 51600 and 51603 include the U-frame base plate,
manipulator arm(s), standard probe holder(s) with corner clamp, and Rat Adaptor
(nose clamp assembly and 18? taper ear bars). The 51650 and 51653 include
non-puncture 45? ear bars instead of 18? ear bars.
Selection of Accessories: Species adaptors are available to fit rat, cat/monkey,
dog/monkey, mouse, guinea pig and small bird. Probe holders and species adaptors
for 'U' frame stereotaxic instruments from other manufacturers are generally
compatible with the Lab Standard frame.
