Just For Mouse™ Stereotaxic Instruments

Just For Mouse™ Stereotaxic Instruments

The Just For Mouse™ Stereotaxic Instrument was specifically developed for the expanding growth of research being conducted in laboratories using knock-out and transgenic mice. This stereotaxic instrument is ideal for researchers in need of a versatile, reliable instrument for stereotaxic procedures with mice and other small rodents. Precision alignment when using the Just For Mouse™ ensures accurate placement of electrodes, micropipettes, cannula, and other devices. Just For Mouse™ is the only instrument built especially for mice, and offers several advantages over other commercially-available “made for rat” instruments.

• Available in manual, digital, motorized and ultra-precise versions
• Small 25 x 25 cm footprint
• Single or dual manipulator arms
• Ear and tooth bar post height adjustment to accommodate animals
    between 10-75 grams
• Delrin® ear bars; tapered points on one end and rubber pads on the other
• Triple lead screw in manipulator arm for fastpositioning
• Accurate to 100 µm

Small Footprint
The small size, one of the smallest on the market, is ideal for laboratories with small spaces or for use in surgical suites that require transportation of equipment to and from surgical facilities.

Dual Manipulator Arms
Add another manipulator arm for increased versatility. Often used for electrophysiology studies that requires both recording and stimulation.

Unique, Light Ear Bars
Ear bar posts may be independently adjusted in height—a unique feature of this stereotaxic instrument—to level the skull. Ear bars are composed of light Delrin® material with tapered points, non-invasive rubber pads or jaw holder cuffs. Laser engraved scales show the vertical positions of the ear bars. Model organisms with soft skulls, such as the mouse and the neonatal rat, are difficult to secure firmly in a traditional stereotaxic instrument. The stainless steel ear bars used for adult rats are too heavy to provide a secure hold without compressing the sides of the skull inward (which closes the airways and impedes blood flow).

Included Components
Base, manipulator arm(s), standard probe holder(s) with corner clamp, Delrin® nose clamp assembly and Delrin® ear bars
