Weight Drop TBI models are used to replicating focal cerebral contusions as well as traumatic, diffuse brain injury by axonal damage. Attach a metal loop to the top end of the desired weight allowing the fishing line to be fastened to the weight. The plastic guide tube is held in place with a clamp stand and positioned above the scored tin foil. The fishing line is then attached through the metal loop to the weight ensuring that the bottom of the weight hangs freely over the scored tin foil. The fishing line is then connected to the clamp stand, and the weight is drawn up through the plastic guide tube with the fishing line and secured in its position with an Allen key pin.
The Microdrill Holder fixes the hand-held cranial drill to the operating arm of the locator controlling the drilling depth through the lifting of the operating arm. With this, the procedure is simple and accurate to avoid damages to the animal’s brain tissue or excessive drilling.
The holding range is 14.5mm.

The Anesthesia Induction Chamber is used to confining the rodent in a closed space during anesthesia procedures. The chamber comes with a top sliding lid for convenient entry and removal of subjects, and two separate inlet and outlet openings for the entry of fresh anesthetizing gas and collection of scavenging waste gas material. The transparent material helps in visualizing the physical state of the subject; thus preventing accidental overdosing.
