7140 - Paw Swelling meter

The new Paw Swelling Meter is a micro controlled volume meter, specially designed for accurate measurement of the rat/mouse paw swelling. It consists of a water filled Perspex cell (several diameters are available) into which the paw is dipped. A transducer of original design records small differences in water level, caused by volume displacement. The digital read-out shows the exact volume of the paw. The instrument features direct connection to PC of a single unit, via the optional win-DAS software package. The weight of the animal (a datum generated by an optional electronic scale) and the volume of the paw can be processed and printed together. The optional Mini-Printer 7145 enables the print-out of the experimental data.

7450 - Feeding Analyzer

The Monitoring Cage for Food & Drink have been designed to record consumption at preset intervals, for studying the alteration of the feeding behavior, in particular the drugs which produce anorexia, the addiction/aversion to particular substances, the thirst arousing and quenching mechanism, the feeding habit and its modification. The 7452 cage is designed for one rat; the 7453 is dimensioned of the mouse. Each cage is provided with specially designed pellet trough and drinking tube. The cage routes its digitized signals through an Electronic Unit capable of supporting feeding and drinking transducers on up to 6 cages. The electronic unit, in turn, connects to the PC via a data acquisition card: different data acquisition software configurations are available to manage several cages.

7003/4/5 - Transducers

The Isometric Force Transducers Cat. No. 7003, 7004 and 7005 have been designed for precise measurement of force in muscular preparations under isometric conditions. The force exerted on a hollow carbon fiber beam is converted into proportional electric signal.

47105 - Paw Strength Meter

The 47105 Paw Strength Meter measures forelimb grip-strength in rats. The effects of drugs, toxins, muscle relaxants, disease, ageing or neural damage on muscle strength may be assessed. The rat is placed over a Perspex plate, in front of a grasping trapeze. Rodents instinctively grab anything they can to try to stop this involuntary backward movement, until the pulling force overcomes their grip strength. After the animal loses its grip, the peak preamplifier automatically stores the peak pull force and shows it on a liquid crystal display. The similar 47106 is dimensioned for the mouse. The data supplied by the peak amplifier are available in digital and analog form. The peak amplifier is provided with a connector for branching it to the Multifunction Printer.

37215 - Analgesic Drugs Screening

The 37215 is the up date version of the classical 7200 which, since 1965, in a number of academic and industrial laboratories, is helping to perform a rapid precise screening of analgesic drugs, according to Randall-Selitto Test. The 37215 features the weight displacing screw driven by a low voltage geared-motor, to increase safety, an optical switch to measure the start/stop time-lag (hence the force at which the animal struggles) and to communicate this datum to the Multifunction Printer. Provision is made for easier and quicker replacement of parts; mains & pedal cables are now detachable, etc.
