SM-11 Stereotaxic Micromanipulator

SM-11 Stereotaxic Micromanipulator



The SM-11 Stereotaxic Micromanipulator is the most popular micromanipulator for stereotaxic instruments, and is attached to AP frame bar of the instrument when in use. A coarse movement unit with a long working range is attached to the Z-axis, while units for fine movement adjustment are mounted on each individual axis. These fine movement units have scales with minimum increment of 10µm (i.e. the total of a single rotation, 500µm, divided by 50), so that precise adjustments of only 10µm are possible. In addition, the Z-axis fine movement unit has a sliding mechanism, which enables approximate positioning of the X-axis. A rotation mechanism is equipped for each of the XY, XZ and YZ planes, which allows approach from any required tilting angle. Easy-to-use scales are provided wherever necessary, for operations following a brain chart. Overall, the SM-11 Stereotaxic Micromanipulator is simple to use and meets a wide variety of applications.

  • The Z-axis fine movement unit is not used for mounting DMA-1610 on SM-11.
  • The SM-11-HT (without the Z-axis fine movement unit) is also available.
  • Dedicated attachment SM-11A (sold separately) is required when attaching MO-10 / MO-83.
