Lab Standard™ Stereotaxic Instrument for Small Species

Dual Lab Standard Stereotaxic

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 an excellent choice for a stereotaxic instrument.

• Available in manual, digital, motorized and ultra-precise versions
• Large, easy to read vernier scales
• Scales are laser engraved–accurate to 100 µm
• Triple lead screws for fast positioning 80 mm of vertical, lateral and
    anterior-posterior travel
• Absolute lock at 90° (vertical)

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 three axes. Precise alignment with facing vernier scales gives accurate resolution to 100 µm.

Versatility of Positioning
The manipulator arm controls medial-lateral and ventral-dorsal positioning using exclusive triple lead screws for faster positioning, and anterior-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 90° in either the anterior-posterior or medial-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 90° 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.

Included Components
U-frame base, manipulator arm(s), standard probe holder(s) with corner clamp, nose clamp assembly (adaptor) and ear bars
