Motor-drive Oil Hydraulic Fine Open-Type Micromanipulator System

MO-973A:  $13,351.35 - Ships in 1-5 days
Chronic micromanipulator allowing multiple measurements and use of a grid.

By adding the DM System to the MO-97A, which is equipped with a chamber, X-Y base and oil hydraulic drive, the driving volume can be controlled with even greater precision. This chronic micromanipulator is designed for use with middle-sized animals, mainly monkeys. The wide (30mm) movement range and oil hydraulic drive allow electrodes to be inserted, without vibration, into deep areas by remote control. A guide tube (not available with conventional models) can be attached to help conduct the electrode to the required position with great accuracy. Despite the addition of these functions, this model is still light in weight and has a low center of gravity. Since it is attached to the head using the chamber method, detachment is easily performed without the concern that some slight movement will detach the electrode involuntarily. The open type chamber allows many driving units to be mounted, or placement of a grid in the center of chamber.

* The model is a successor product of MO-972A that some parts inside have been updated.
* The MO-972A-D is recommended when adding a drive unit only for multi-injection, stimulation, and recording experiments.

The Adoption of Multi-slot CardBus Reader Allows Additional Drive Units. Based on the DM System, control boards are expandable thus up to three Drive Units can be controlled by one Control Box and one Keypad Controller.

Coordinate Calculation:
This function enables the user to set an arbitrary position as a reference point and the display is capable of showing the distance traveled from the set reference point. Position measurement system saves you the inconvenience of calculating the distance traveled, during and after each experiment.

Equipped with Diverse Functions to Support Various Experiments
Three driving modes: Free Drive/Set Drive/Step Drive are user-selectable and the respective minimum movement units are user-definable.

Keypad Controller:
Easy-to-operate sheet keys are used for the Keypad Controller.

USB communications interface enables remote-control operation, permitting automatic drive to a specified position as well as interfacing to external hosts such as PCs through application programs.
