MMPF animal cradles are designed for easy setup and workflow. Connections for animal monitoring, anesthesia and warming are interfaced to the main instrument through a one quick-lock connector. Animal cradles in different sizes are available for mice, rats and for multi-mouse imaging.
MMPF animal cradles are designed for use with all instruments using the high precision Animal Transport System (ATS). System-specific adapters are also available for a range of Bruker imaging instruments not equipped with an ATS (e.g., MRI instruments equipped with AutoPac/ManPac or Magnet Table with manual sliding system).
Three main types of animal cradles are available:
MMPF Animal Cradle Preparation Station
The quick-lock tabletop adapter preparation station for MMFP animal cradles is available to allow easy preparation of the animal and supervision of the next animal prior to imaging or while an instrument is still in use.
