Pedestals

Microprobes for Life Science Large Animal Pedestals are precision machined using durable materials incorporating a design that has evolved from feedback received from many experienced investigators. Our new pedestals provide safe, stable, and low impact performance. Each one is custom fabricated and constructed of pure milled titanium with a smooth surface finish.

The single-housing acrylic anchored pedestal incorporates a silicone gasket and titanium lid to prevent moisture and airborne debris contamination. The 1.7mm diameter flanges, extending one from each side, allow for easy fixation of the pedestal to the skull using cranial cement. Pedestal sizing is available for both 18 and 36 channel Omnetics nano strip connectors. The multi-housing Crist Instruments Pedestals feature a low profile Ultem cap secured using side-mounted set screws, and six reinforced anchor points sized for standard large-animal skull screws. All pedestals are available with one of three lower contour options: flat bottom, curved bottom, or custom cut using researcher-provided topographic imaging to precisely match your implant location. These pedestals feature a scalable architecture allowing for one to four standard Omnetics nano strip connectors of either 18 or 36 channel size.

Features

  • Precision milled titanium body provides light weight, high strength, and MRI compatibility
  • Side-mounted cap set screw keeps vertical profile low and minimizes thread stripping
  • Compatible with all Microprobes for Life Science flexible cable arrays in any combination
  • Six reinforced anchor points provide a stable mounting on all sides
