Kopf Electrode Holders and Clamping Devices are designed for use with all Kopf Electrode Manipulators. A unique vertical adjustment permits a Kopf holder to be placed as close as possible to the laboratory animal’s head. This allows the shortest electrode possible to be used, ensuring rigidity and lack of deflection. It also makes it possible to easily obtain preset depths and readings.
Can be mounted either right or left hand in the standard or offset position
A selection of clamping devices to cover most needs.
Standard shaft size unless otherwise specified 17 cm L x 7.9 mm rod diameter. Weight: 3 ounces
All holders are supplied with an 1770-C Upper Bracket and Screw assembly for mounting to any Kopf Electrode Manipulator.
Model 1768 Micrometer Adjustable Electrode Holder allows
micrometer axial control of the electrode.
It holds electrodes from .75 mm to 1.5 mm diameter.
Micrometer extending 5.5 mm.
Model 1769 90° Electrode Holder utilizes the same standard electrode holder with corner clamp as the Model 1770, but is mounted so that the electrode protrudes 90°.
Holds electrodes from 0.4 mm to 1.3 mm diameter.
Model 1770 Standard Electrode Holder with Corner Clamp is supplied with all manipulators unless otherwise specified.
Holds electrodes of .4 mm to 1.3 mm diameter.
Model 1778 is modified with longer shaft 22.23 cm.
Models 1770 and 1778 have precision molded plastic block with serrated grooves 1 mm apart. These separations are on three sides to facilitate loading of electrodes. Clamping design allows more than one electrode to be held on one side of the holder.
Model 1771 Electrode Holder with Straight Clamp holds electrodes from 0.4 mm to 3.8 mm diameter (pictured right).
Model 1773 Electrode Holder with Removable Open Side Clamp is useful for chronic work when cementing electrodes. Holds 0.4 mm to 3.6 mm diameter. Image
Models 1771 and 1773 have precision molded plastic block with serrated grooves 1 mm apart. These separations are on three sides to facilitate loading of electrodes. Clamping design allows more than one electrode to be held on one side of the holder.
Model 1774 Wedge Holder with Removable Flag is used for cementing electrodes to a plastic flag that is held with a tapered clamp.
Because of its design a great number of electrodes can be placed very closely together.
Model 1775 Collet Electrode Holder with insulated collet holds from 0 to 1.1 mm diameter electrodes.
