The mouse and young rat adapter ear rods are made of resin and the tip is appropriately tapered, which can not only firmly clamp the mouse head, but also avoid the use of stainless steel as the ear rod to damage the mouse skull. The height of the rod and the height of the incisor clamp can be adjusted freely, and with scales, it is suitable for different angles for experiments. In view of the lack of ear canal in young rats, a zygomatic fixed sleeve is added to replace the pointed ear rod, which provides a non-invasive and stable fixation method for the head of young rats. It can be used alone or installed on the base of the stereotaxic apparatus.
Young Mouse Adapter (includes 20° ear bar and 45° ear bar)
The width of the bottom plate is 150X100mm, which is convenient for the head of young mice to be fixed, providing more operating space for researchers, and it is convenient to be placed on the bottom plate of the locator for trial use. The adjustment range of the incisor and nose clip fixing structure is 20mm to ensure that the animal's craniofacial remains level.
This adapter uses an anesthesia mask and incisor rod to fix the mouse head, which is stable and has good anesthesia effect. The anesthesia outlet can be connected to a gas recovery system to recover the exhaust gas to protect the operator and the environment. The connection between the head fixing structure and the fixing plate adopts Screw way, easy to adjust up and down
