Model 1245M MRI Cat / Monkey Adaptor locates the animal firmly and accurately by means of tapered ear bars which fit into the external auditory meatus. Adjustable infra-orbital clamps and a vertically adjustable palate bar prevent rotation of the skull. A unique feature this adaptor offers is ear bars which can be filled with a reference fluid marker, such as Vitamin E or Mineral Oil.

Product specifications listed are compatible for use with 45 cm diameter MRI device. Custom height modifications for compatibility with other MRI devices are offered at no additional charge.
Model 1430M-H Offset Adaptor Kit includes 45 mm offset ear bars and riser block with arched posterior support rail. This option is useful when overall height of the stereotaxic frame is modified to fit into a smaller MRI device. This adaptor will elevate the animal above A/P bars for specific animal head placement positioning within the MRI device.
