Kopf Micro Manipulators are designed and manufactured to provide new standards of precision in micro positioning. No other manipulators in the stereotaxic field approach their performance or reliability.
Very close tolerances are held in production with all dovetail slides precision ground. This, along with backlash free drive screws and the sheer mass of the manipulators, assures the most accurate placement of electrodes as well as a degree of repeatability impossible to find in any other manipulator.
Positive locks are provided for all articulating surfaces except the screw driven vertical and lateral slide. 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 1760-SB includes model 1770 Standard Electrode Holder with corner clamp. Model 1760-61SB 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.
Model 1760 Micro Manipulator
Manipulator X, Z adjustment - Metric vernier scale 80 mm travel. Calibrated dial - 10 micron increments,1.0 mm of travel per revolution.
Manipulator Y adjustment - Manual adjustment 100 mm each side of zero (A/P bar) 0.1 mm vernier scale.
Angle adjustment - Fully universal joint calibrated on two planes for access from any angle. Vertical alignment pin can be removed for angled settings from 0° - 90° either side of vertical, 2° increments.
Rotation adjustment - Manipulator swivel base can be rotated up to 360°. Manipulator X/Z axis can be repositioned at 90° increments.
