node:body | entity_field

About the Innovation

The Tip-Tilt-Z Sample Positioner provides automated rotation of a head-fixed rodent specimen about the anterior-posterior and mediolateral axes for imaging or other purposes. The device also provides automated Z translation and can be customized to accommodate various head bar designs. 

Rotation range, each axis: +/-10 deg 

Z travel varies depending on the angular orientation of the sample:   
         minimum Z travel: +/- 8.5 mm 
         maximum Z travel: +/- 25mm 

Precision actuators allow for micron-level repeatability.


Free to make for Non-Profit Research by downloading designs at Flintbox link to the right.
