Mouse Rota-Rod NG Mouse Rota-Rod NG

The “Rota-Rod” technique is essential in screening drugs potentially active, or having side effects, on motor coordination. Ugo Basile designed the original Rota-Rod, the first industrial ROTA-ROD almost 50 years ago, based on the 1957 paper by N.W Dunham and T.S Miya. The 47650 Rota-Rod NG (Next Generation), is an evolution of the original model and the result of many years of research in cooperation with the latest development in behavioral and pharmacological research. 

Since then, our models have been cited in thousands of scientific papers. The name we coined soon became so popular, now everybody knows this device as RotaRod!

What's new in the NG model:

Physically similar to the previous versions, it offers the same reliability, matched with innovative technology! The new model features stainless-steel trip-boxes to facilitate cleaning and confine the animals when they fall off the rod.

The Mouse Rota-Rod consists of five 3cm diam. cylinders, which are suitably machined to provide grip. Six 25cm diam. dividers make for five lanes, each 5.7cm wide, enabling five mice to be on the rotor simultaneously. The height to fall is 16cm.

A brand new, user friendly software, is included as standard; via the new software, the operator can easily organize the experiment on her/his PC, and upload it to the Rota-Rod via the USB key. The software automatically classifies the data, combining configuration settings with test results; the user can add information, before or after the test. Results appear in a tree-like structure, where columns can be dragged and dropped to customize the layout. Configurations and data are exported as Text, Excel or Pdf reports and can be saved to cloud via DropBox, OneDrive, GoogleDrive.

The experiment can be set and results can be monitored, also via the 4”3 touch-screen.

Remote diagnosis and internet access are provided.

The 47650 combines the same functionality of the previous version, now considered the standard, with additional new features: surprisingly silent operation, much easier experimental organization and data management.
