The Lab Standard 51600 features a U-Frame design concept, rugged construction and adaptability to most species used in the lab.
All scales are oriented to be read most easily from the open end of the "U". This is the position from which most operators prefer to work. The numerals on the scales are larger and therefore more readable. The scale lines are very finely drawn to allow precise alignment with facing scales, and are laser engraved for reliable, consistent quality.
The instrument's custom, triple-start lead screws allow the fastest positioning possible consistent with lining up the scales easily for a given position. The universal joint allows the investigator to angle the probe in either the anterior-posterior or the lateral-medial planes. The improved locking mechanism will hold any angled position without slippage. It also provides an absolute lock at the vertical position. The manipulator arm may be swiveled out of the way for convenience in installing the animal or performing a procedure, then returned to the same point reliably with the aid of the locking face block above the swivel joint.
The 51603 Dual Manipulator model is configured with 3-dimensional manipulator arms on both sides. The second manipulator arm is properly reversed as to handedness.
