The Harvard Apparatus Large Animal Stereotaxic Instruments incorporate all of the features of the Standard U-Frame Stereotaxic Instrument into a design that is appropriate for most large laboratory animals, such as dog, cat and monkey. 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.

Key Features

  • Resolution of 100 µm for manual versions and 10 µm for digital versions
  • Adapters available for cat, dog and monkey and other species
  • Can fit up to 6 manipulator arms, 3 on each rail
  • Additional single or dual arm manipulator arms available in manual or digital
  • Instruments also available in 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

Additional manipulator arms can be purchased separately. Harvard Apparatus Manipulator Arms offer a dual-lead screw design that ensures stable, accurate and smooth manipulations while the laser engraved scales offer ease of reading. They offer 180° vertical rotation and 360° horizontal rotation, with the ability to lock at any angle.

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.
