Fear conditioning is one of the most common methods to measure memory in rodents. It exploits the Pavlovian association between an unpleasant unconditioned stimulus (shock) to a conditioned neutral stimulus (sound cue). The reaction of rodents, as predated animals, is to freeze (stay immobile) when exposed to fearful situations, such as a shock.
Once the association has happened and...
This software enables researchers to study behavior in a more reliable and consistent way and over longer time periods than if they were using direct observation or manual recording.

A positive pressure pump (according to Starling's Ventilator method) for cats, rabbits and small animals of similar size. Assists with breathing during anesthesia and surgery or when an animal has an injury or illness that requires respiratory support.
Highly accurate rate displayed digitally, choice of cylinder/piston assemblies (50, 100 ml), quiet, robust, high quality, and long...
Provides and easy to use means of immobilizing an animal for surgery or procedures such as imaging. Gas Anesthesia (compared to injections) is a very quick way to induce total unconsciousness and also assists fast recovery.
High quality compact, modular and virtually unbreakable system. Reliable and precise delivery of the anesthetic gas to animals. Expandable system providing...
Patented non-invasive vital signs monitor. Measures heart rate, arterial oxygen saturation (SpO2), breath rate, and temperature (optional) of anesthetized and conscious small laboratory animals of various sizes.
Clinically validated and cited in a range of published studies including respiratory, neonatal, hypertension and brain injury.
Invasive arterial or venous blood pressure measurement during animal surgery. For urodynamic, intrauterine and intracranial studies. Also suitable for intensive care.
Connects to data acquisition systems such as our DataCapsule-Evo. High quality, robust, reusable and cost effective.
A multi-function, non-invasive blood pressure recorder for small to medium animals (mice to dogs) for use in a wide range of scientific studies.
Combines functionality of multiple systems including pressure generation-pressure monitoring system, pulse amplifier, thermal-array analog and digital recording unit and more. Single turn-key, stand-alone solution that can also be connected...
For stereotaxic surgery using rats or other small animals. Can be used to locate targets for implantation of devices, stimulation or injections.
Smooth, consistent movements with rapid positioning. Time-proven 'U'-Frame design provides stability and adaptability. Integrated warming base can be activated for better surgical outcomes.
The KDS Legato series is a range of advanced, precision syringe pumps. For applications requiring high metering precision at low, pulse-free flow rates.
Intuitive touch screen allows user to easily define complex injection protocols. Display presents real time data.
Provides accurate recording of isometric or isotonic tissue contraction/release. For studying effects of drugs or electrical stimuli on isolated smooth muscles (including uterus, trachea, gastrointestinal tract, vessel strips, auricle etc) under optimum conditions.
Classic pharmacology tool for research and teaching. Maintains the integrity of live muscle tissue for several hours in...
The Elevated Zero-Maze is an alternative model to the Elevated Plus Maze (EPM). Its circular design provides a smoother transition from closed to open space. The model is based on the rodent's instinctive tendency to explore novel environments and also to avoid unprotected open and elevated spaces. For neurobiological anxiety research.
High quality maze with surface texture selected...
The elevated plus maze (EPM) is used to measure anxiety in rats and mice. The model is based on the rodent's instinctive tendency to explore novel environments and also to avoid unprotected open and elevated spaces. For neurobiological anxiety research.
High quality maze with surface texture selected for best rodent comfort. Optimized for use with video tracking software (high...
