Stoelting's Mouse/Neonatal Rat Adaptors can be used to transform the Lab Standard™ (and other U-frame) stereotaxic for rats into an instrument appropriate for use with mouse and rat pup surgeries (Stereotaxic sold seperately). 51625-1 - The Elevated Platform for Mouse Lab Standard adapts the 'U-frame' stereotaxic instrument by elevating the mouse to the appropriate height so that the bite and ear bars can be used. We recommend that this adaptor be used with 51660-1 (Non-traumatic Mouse adaptor kit - sold seperately) Adaptors are Warmer Ready. Stoelting adaptors are designed to be integrated with the Stoelting Rodent Warmer System (sold separately) and are used to maintain body temperature throughout surgical procedures. The thermal heating pads are embedded into the adaptor to avoid cross contamination with easy clean-up and maintain a sterile environment during stereotaxic surgery. In addition, it can be used as a general warming system or with a rectal thermal probe (sold separately) for homeothermic regulation.
