Modular accessories allow for expansion of instrument capabilities. Adaptable for use with a wide variety of small animals.
Electrode Manipulator 0,1mm
Kopf Electrode Manipulators are designed to manipulate stereotaxic drills, cannula insertion kits, micro injectors and other Kopf stereotaxic accessories.
The Kopf design enables two manipulators to be placed side by side with bases touching. Each manipulator position can be articulated independently without disturbing the other. This is because of the narrow width of the slides and strategic placement of the screw-adjusting knobs. The end of the lateral slide has a precision “V” groove and locking thread to which electrode holders and accessory equipment may be attached quickly and easily.
Model 1460 includes model 1770 Standard Electrode Holder with corner clamp. Model 1460-61 includes model 1778 Standard Electrode Holder with corner clamp (longer version). Both are used for Models 1430 and 1530 stereotaxic frames or any other equipment with 18.70 mm A/P bar.
