Ugo Basile Hot/Cold Plate

Ugo Basile Hot/Cold Plate

The Ugo Basile Hot/Cold Plate offers a wide temperature range between -5°C to 65°C. It can be used as a conventional hot plate, to carry out a rapid precise screening of narcotic type analgesic drugs according to the well known Hot Plate Test devised by B.B. Eddy and D. Leinbach, or as a cold plate to study cold receptors and cold allodynia.

Ugo Basile Grip Strength Meter

Ugo Basile Grip Strength Meter

The Ugo Basile Grip-Strength Meter automatically measures grip-strength (i.e. peak force and time resistance) of forelimbs, and via the optional grid, hindlimbs in rats and mice. The effects of drugs, toxins, muscle relaxants, disease, aging or neural damage on muscle strength may be assessed.

SDI Prepulse Inhibition (PPI) and Acoustic Startle Response (ASR) System
San Diego Instruments Prepulse Inhibition and Acoustic Startle Response System

The San Diego Instruments PPI/ASR System is used for measuring startle habituation, pre-pulse inhibition (PPI) and Fear Potentiated Startle (FPS). Users can execute any and all startle reflex testing paradigms using the SR-LAB Software and specialized additional kits—and ensure accuracy using SR-LAB’s proprietary accelerometer which accommodates the rapid force changes in startle testing.

Muromachi Kikai MK-630B Single-Lane Rota-Rod Treadmill

The MK-630B is a low cost & portable single lane rota-rod treadmill and can be used to assess the effect of drugs, brain damage, diseases on motor-coordination or fatigue resistance. It can be used for both rat and mouse. The instrument consists of main unit (MK-630B) and a rat adaptor. The revolving speed can be set for the range of 1 – 40 rpm by 1 rpm steps. When the animal stops running and falls off the rod onto the plates, the counting stops and staying time on the rod is displayed on LCD. Falling is detected by micro switch.

Ugo Basile Shuttle Avoidance Box
Ugo Basile Shuttle Active Avoidance Box

Active avoidance is a fear-motivated associative avoidance task. In this task the animal has to learn to predict the occurrence of an aversive event (shock) based on the presentation of a specific stimulus (tone), in order to avoid the aversive event by moving to a different compartment.

The measures recorded include number of avoidances (the mouse crossing to the other compartment during the warning signal), number of non-responses (the mouse failing to cross to the other compartment during the trial), response latency (latency to avoid or escape), number of intertrial responses (i.e., crossing the barrier within the intertrial interval), and serve as an index of learning and allows memory to be assessed.
