Animal head holder and heating pad
This clamping method is based on 3 point fixation (mouth, nose and ear) that makes the stable fixation. The nosepiece can be detachable and changeable by using the dedicated anesthetic mask, and it will be easily moved onto the experiment with use of anesthesia. By attaching the holding instrument to a single bar, it is enable to fix the head stably and allows the head angle to be freely adjusted through 360°. The shape and functions are simple, yet this holder can be used for many different purposes. The SGM-3 is for rats. The SGM-4 is for mice. The SG-3N (for rats) and SG-4N (for mice) without the accessories of anesthetic mask and tilt adjustment mechanism are also available.
This clamping method is based on three-point fixation (mouth, nose and ears), ensuring that the head is easily and firmly fixed in position. By attaching the mouth/nose clamp and ear bar to a single bar, the instrument allows the head angle to be freely adjusted through 360°. The holder's overall compact size makes it possible to be used for many different purposes. It can be placed on the iron plate in combination with a thin type magnetic stand (GJ-12). The SG-3N is for rats, and the SG-4N for mice.
This head holder comes with a holder and a base of 100% plastic and is used in MRI. The animal's head can be firmly held in place at three-points (mouth, nose and ears). The size of the SGP-3 for rats is kept to just under 70mm when the holder is detached from the base. If an MRI scanner has a small opening, the animal can be held in place to pass through the scanner. This allows measurements even when using small MRI scanners. The SGP-3 is for rats and the SGP-4 is for mice.
