To hold mice or rats for spinal surgery
The design was inspired by the need for a practical, versatile, and economical instrument for stabilizing the spinal column. The Stoelting Spinal Adaptors are accessories to be mounted on the 51600, 51900 or other brands of stereotaxic instruments, converting them for precise spinal surgery applications.
These adaptors utilize the manipulator and base plate of the stereotaxic instrument, enabling precision spinal preparations. The spinal column is secured by up to four independent transverse process clamps, as well as a spinous process clamp. The transverse process clamps are designed to minimize trauma while providing motionless support.
Engineered for one-handed control of gross and fine adjustment of the surgical preparation in the AP, ML, and DV planes. Transverse process clamps are available to accommodate either the rat or the mouse. To work with both species, order one Spinal Adaptor and one set of transverse clamps for the other species.
