The Animal MRI instrument is designed to successfully stabilize small animals for stereotaxic surgery including repositioning of the head holder assembly within a MRI device without generating electromagnetic interference.
The A/P bar is compatible with Kopf manipulator Models 1460, 1460-61, 1760SB and 1760-61SB (manipulators sold separately).
The design of Model 900M-B MRI Head Holder Assembly allows easy access and removal from the stereotaxic base for insertion into an MRI device 12 cm diameter (or larger). Animals head position remains constant.
A/P Bar – 18.70 mm square
A/P Bar length – 25.40 cm
A/P Bar calibration – 100 mm each side of zero (ear bar centerline)
A/P zero to posterior end of bar – 12.70 cm
Ear Bar Locator position – A/P zero
Model 923M MRI Mouse Gas Anesthesia Adaptor is designed for use with Model 900M offering maximum stereotaxic adjustment available for positioning the head, allowing versatility to angle the head position without obstructing the ability to deliver gas anesthesia.
Another unique feature that this adaptor offers is ear bars which can be filled with a reference fluid marker, such as Vitamin E or Mineral Oil. Ear bars have removable extensions. Once animal is properly secured within the head holder, the back of the ear bar can be unscrewed and removed, this will assist when loading MRI head holder into small diameter MRI devices.
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.
