Digital Stereotaxic with Manual Fine Drive Leica
Leica stereotaxic instruments with digital, as opposed to vernier, scales offer greater speed of operation with reduced opportunity for error. This compact instrument features linear position-sensing digital scales and a convenient remote display center.
Simply move the probe to Bregma and touch the zeroing button. Once all displays read zero, move the probe until each of the three axes displays the desired coordinates.
Leica manipulators include a low mounted manual fine drive on the dorsal ventral manipulator to minimize hand generated vibration of the probe, and avoid overshoot. In addition, this manipulator includes a high torque compression clamp system on the tilt mechanism for the greatest stability.
Manual Fine Drive reduces risk of overshoot, and reduces hand transmitted vibration.
Reduced Risk of Human Error
Touch probe to Bregma, touch zero button for each axis, and move to the target coordinate. No reading vernier scales, writing down numbers, or doing arithmetic.
