Cortical Contusion Impactor

Categories: , , SKU: RWD-68093

The Stereotaxic Head Trauma Contusion Device or Cortical Contusion Impactor (for rat and mice) enables researchers to induce traumatic brain injury (TBI) in animal models with great precision and control.

This device allows for reproducible and focal brain injury, making it an essential tool for neuroscience research. The device is fully adjustable and can be customized to the researcher’s specific requirements, ensuring that the impact is delivered to the exact location in the brain that is of interest.

One of the key features of this device is its highly sensitive pressure transducer, which ensures that the force of impact is precisely controlled. This level of precision is critical for researchers who need to induce consistent and reproducible injuries in animal models.

The Stereotaxic Head Trauma Contusion Device can be used in both rat and mouse models, making it a versatile tool for a wide range of research applications. It can be adapted to the Stereotaxic frame to perform the experiment.
