Stereotaxic Manipulator

New line-up of SMM series: coarse manipulation in Z axis.

Coarse manipulator for stereotaxic instruments focusing on driving outside the animal's brain. The driving by Z-axis control knob: approximately 4mm per rotation makes faster adjustments for leveling bregma and lambda, and faster retracting/returning from the dura mater, which will improve efficiency of experiment. For operations inside the brain, One-axis Motorized Stereotaxic Micromanipulator MDS-1 and hydraulic manipulator can be added optionally*. The X-axis is equipped with coarse control knob, which is the same as the Z-axis. The Y-axis (anterior/ posterior direction) is equipped with fine control knob. The upper body of SMM-200C can be tilted with dual angles: AP and ML directions simultaneously.

SMM-200C

* The minimum graduation of the X and Z-axis is 100µm. This manipulator is recommended to be used in combination with fine micromanipulator (MDS-1, etc.).

Stereotaxic Manipulator

Set-up example with SMM-A

SMM-A is recommended for experiments: tilting in the ML direction.

When the manipulator SMM-100C/200C is tilted in the ML direction, the end of the holder (electrode tip) may far off from animal's head. The attachment SMM-A is designed to attach a holder on the side of manipulator, so it enables the holder position without operating the X-axis. To this end, the holder (electrode tip) can be set to the animal's head while maintaining driving distance of the X-axis.

SMM-200C + SMM-A + MDS-1 + IMS-30

* The set-up example above: motorized MDS-1 and IMS-30 on SMM-200C installed with SMM-A.
