This chronic micromanipulator is designed for use with middle sized animals, mainly monkeys. The wide (30mm) movement range and oil hydraulic drive allow electrodes to be inserted, without vibration, into deep areas by remote control. A guide tube (not available with conventional models) can be attached to help conduct the electrode to the required position with great accuracy. Despite the addition of these functions, this model is still light in weight and has a low center of gravity. Since it is attached to the head using the chamber method, detachment is easily performed but there is no concern that some slight movement will detach the electrode involuntarily. The XY stage is made of acrylic, which allows accurate positioning and observation inside animal subjects.
* Motorized type MDO-974 also available.
