Model 900SD & 900HD Neurostar Motorized Small Animal Stereotaxic Instruments. David Kopf Instruments is pleased to introduce our collaboration with Neurostar, Germany, the inventor of the Motorized Stereotaxix. We now offer Kopf stereotaxic instruments and manipulators with robotic features including state-of-art software.
Using the Motorized Stereotaxic you can focus on the experiment without having to manipulate the stereotaxic by hand. Neurostar’s software allows you to control the motorized positioning of the probe in all three orthogonal axes by using the keyboard arrow keys, by clicking on the screen with the mouse or by using a joystick.
Resolution: 1 micron (0,001 mm) all axis. Max Speed: 1 mm/s
Resolution: 2 micron (0,002 mm) all axis. Max Speed: 3 mm/s
Neurostar’s Atlas Integration and Intuitive Movement Control enable ultra precise and reproducible stereotaxic microinjections, probe positioning and highly accurate automated drilling, craniotomy and brain windowing. Automated atlas adjustment by smart software algorithms compensates for human errors, interindividual variations and alignment inaccuracies.
Neurostar’s software facilitates experiment planning by atlas browsing, target definition, storage and retrieval. The optional usage of Robot Add-Ons such as Robot Drill, Robot Microinjection and Smart Bregma Finder saves time, increases experiment accuracy and reproducibility, enabling high-throughput stereotaxic procedures.
Please indicate if you are working with rat and/or mice during the checkout. We typically include mice accessories as standard but the instruments were designed for versatility. Any standard accessory that is not required can be omitted and the appropriate accessories can be added for your specific research.
These are some of the accessories available for the Kopf Motorized Frames. One or more of these accessories are needed to fully take advantage of the motorized, robotic features these frames inherit.
