A warmer to provide external heat to animals undergoing surgery. Helps to maintain near-normal body temperature for improved surgical outcomes (such as fewer adverse cardiac events and reduced blood loss).
Preprogrammed animal temperatures, easy-to-use control, lightweight with small footprint. Select Rodent Warmer X2 for simultaneous control of 2 independent heating pads.
Measures the force (or tension) of isolated tissue when its length is constant. Pharmacological responses can be characterized by the contractile/relaxant properties.
Four models available covering range from 0 to 50g. Highest-sensitivity model covers the range 0-800mg. Sturdy construction. Connects to popular data acquisition systems.
Evaluates the spasm-inducing effect of drugs. Typically assesses the effect of bronchodilation agents. Also used for screening substances inducing opposite effects.
Simple, reliable and fast method to assess airflow resistance. High precision recording of volume. Available as a complete set up with a rodent ventilator and data acquisition system.
The Porsolt Forced Swim Test (FST), or Porsolt Swim Test (PST), also known as the Behavioral Despair Test, is centered on the way rodents respond to their threat of drowning. This has been correlated to their mood, or, more precisely to their level of depression, with non-depressed animals that swim longer than depressed animals, who, instead, give up and float immobile.
The flexible rodent Lickometer - Vogel Test can operate as both a simple software-based lickometer as well as a system for drinking-conflict experiments (coupled with electric shocks). For assessing anxiety and the anxiolytic effect of drugs.
Rat and mouse models. Easy data collection within the included software for windows. Up to 5 cages can be managed by 1 PC.
Automatically scores wheel rotations, corresponding to rodent escape behaviors. A primary screening test for antidepressants.
Automates up to 40 tests simultaneously for high throughput. Durable, easy to assemble. Optimized for use with video tracking software.
Untainted, reliable samples enabled by a unique funnel and cone design that effectively separates rodent feces and urine into tubes outside the cage.
Collection tubes are easy to remove and the process will not disturb the animals.
Used to measure the paw withdrawal reflex when the mouse or rat paw is unexpectedly touched. For evaluating mechanical allodynia and cutaneous sensation levels. Popular non-invasive technique.
Aesthesio® set of 20 monofilaments based on the Semmes Weinstein monofilament set. An ascending series of increasingly stiff filaments (from 0.008 to 300 grams). Features retractable head to...
Convenient, cost-effective solution to confine rodents and small animals for anesthesia procedures.
Models available in 2 sizes – smaller model for rodents and larger model for rabbits and similarly sized animals. Clear Perspex with a sliding lid. Quick connection to anesthesia or euthanasia systems using the 2 tubing connectors.
Fastest and most effective known method of halting brain chemical activity. Brain fixation occurs in 1 second. The activity of degrading enzymes is blocked. For neurochemical studies of the brain.
Patented applicators focus microwaves on the target area. Touch panel for easy usability, CE certified. Holders for mice and rats.
Antidepressant drugs and depression animal model genetic screening are commonly conducted by using the Tail Suspension Test (TST). This test is based on the aversive effect of hanging a mouse of rat by the tail, which elicits its struggling moving upwards in an attempt to escape (which is obviously not possible).
The struggling attempt tends to be shorter in duration and translates...
The LUX Infrared (IR) illuminator allows for illumination from below of all the Ugo Basile IR mazes, which are made of an IR translucent plastic. This has the double advantage of: making experiments in the darkness easy and enhancing the contrast for better detection, no matter the animal color
The lux is available in 3 sizes, it guarantees a uniform illumination and incorporates IR...
The hot cold plate test has been the gold standard test for thermal pain tests in rodents for decades. Through the years the devices have been improving and the techniques have become more sophisticated, adding to constant temperature methods also other ones.
The Ugo Basile Hot/Cold plate test includes all the latest technologies necessary to run constant temperature, linear ramping...
