The Plethysmometer is an instrument designed to measure small changes in volume, usually via the displacement of water.
In the 60s, Ugo Basile developed the first original device, designed specifically to measure paw swelling in rodents, since then, thousands of scientists have relied on our Plethysmometer to conduct their research on inflammation, publishing almost 3.000 scientific papers!
The instrument is typically used to precisely measure the experimentally induced inflammation of the paw in rodents and its changes due to administration of pharmacological substances potentially active on inflammation.
