Just for Mice Stereotaxic Instrument
The Just for Mice™ Stereotaxic Instrument was specifically developed for research using knock-out and transgenic mice. This innovative instrument allows the researcher to hold and prepare two mice, or neonatal rats, at the same time. This instrument was built especially for mice and offers several advantages over adaptation of "made for rat" instruments.
Two Stereotaxics on a single base and Ideal for Neonatal rats and mice.

The Just For Mouse™ Stereotaxic Instrument was specifically developed for the expanding growth of research being conducted in laboratories using knock-out and transgenic mice. The Stoelting Just For Mouse™ is ideal for researchers in need of a versatile, reliable instrument for stereotaxic procedures with mice and other small rodents. Precision alignment when using the Just For Mouse ensures accurate placement of electrodes, micropipettes, cannula, and other devices. Stoelting’s Just For Mouse is the only instrument built especially for mice, and offers several advantages over competing "made for rat" instruments.
The small size, one of the smallest on the market, is ideal for laboratories with small spaces or for use in surgical suites that require transportation of equipment to and from surgical facilities. A zeroing function allows the user to target specific coordinates in the brain for injection, implantation, etc. Calculation of distance measurements is thus no longer necessary...saving valuable time and improving accuracy.
Dual Manipulator Arms
Add another manipulator arm for increased versatility. Often used for electrophysiology studies that requires both recording and stimulation.
Unique, light ear bars
Ear bar posts may be independently adjusted in height—a unique feature of this stereotaxic instrument—to level the skull. Ear bars are composed of light Delrin material with tapered points or non-invasive rubber pads or jaw holder cuffs. Laser engraved scales show the vertical positions of the ear bars. Model organisms with soft skulls, such as the mouse and the neonatal rat, are difficult to secure firmly in a traditional stereotaxic instrument. The stainless steel ear bars used for adult rats are too heavy to provide a secure hold without compressing the sides of the skull inward (which closes the airways and impedes blood flow).
