Standard U-Frame Stereotaxic Instrument for Rat, 45° Ear Bar
The Harvard Apparatus U-frame Stereotaxic Instrument for rat comes complete with the base plate, 3-axis manipulator arm, rat species adapter, 45° ear bars for rat and holder with corner clamp. The 45° atraumatic ears bars are designed to hold the animal's head firmly without deep penetration into the ear canal, avoiding damage to the tympanic membrane.
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:

The 45° atraumatic ears bars are designed to hold the animal's head firmly without deep penetration into the ear canal, avoiding damage to the tympanic membrane.
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.
