A new standard of stereotaxic instrument for chronic experiments on mice.
The SR-9M-HT is specifically designed for chronic experiments on mice. Fixation by the chamber frame permits repeated fixations in the same position in an unanesthetized state. Thereby chronic experiments as well as acute experiments are allowed without causing damage to the animal. The SR-9M-HT can be used for visual and/or auditory experiments. The head holding device can be removed from the base plate so it can be placed under a microscope. An AP frame bar is provided, to which many different types of accessories can be attached along with the attached micromanipulator.
By bonding the chamber frame onto the head of a mouse, repeated fixations in the same position in an unanesthetized state have become possible. Once the chamber frame is fixed on the head, without the need for anesthetization, the mouse can be stereotaxically fixed without using the mouth/nose clamp or ear bars, enabling the SR-9AM to be used for visual and/or auditory experiments.
Please be advised when mounting on your existent frames since the Narishige stereotaxic manipulators are tailored for international standard 18.7 mm square shape AP frame bar.
