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...

A set up for testing active avoidance (also called automatic reflex conditioner or shuttle box), i.e. learning to predict the occurrence of an aversive event, based on the presentation of a specific stimulus. Enables performance of a wide range of avoidance experiments using a flexible schedule. Precise detection of avoiding aversive event. Manage up to 4 cages with one controller.
The cubicle is a sound-attenuating chamber that isolates small animal subjects from distracting ambient light, sound and activity. For behavioral studies including operant behavior (Skinner), self-administration, etc.
High-level soundproof efficacy, noiseless fan, control box. Extra fixtures (speaker and video camera holder) for fear conditioning studies. Available in standard, large...
Passive Avoidance Test is used to assess memory function based on the association formed between a specific environmental context, which the animal learns to avoid and an aversive stimulus – represented by a mild foot shock.
Efficient and reliable. Silent, automated sliding door divides the dark and light compartments. Systems for mice or rats. Manage up to 4 cages with one...
To perform Light/Dark Test with rats or mice for assessing anxiety. Useful in identifying and/or screening of anxiolytic and anxiogenic agents.
High quality maze with rat and mouse versions. Provides optimal results with video tracking software (high contrast, non reflective). Surface texture selected for rodent comfort. Easy to set up, easy to clean.
The Radial Arm Maze has 8 equally spaced arms radiating from a central circular compartment. It can be used for several sophisticated protocols to study spatial, working and reference learning and memory.
The animal can rely on egocentric or allocentric strategies. Working versus reference memory can be assessed by adopting intra or inter trial protocols. Easy to set up, easy to...
The Barnes Maze is a valid alternative to the water maze to study spatial learning and memory. The motivational drive is the rodent’s instinctive aversion for open spaces and natural preference for dark, “sheltered” spaces.
Reliable and durable. Optimized for use with video-tracking software. Available for mice or rats. Easy to set up, easy to clean.
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.
When rodents are exposed to inescapable and unpredictable stress, such as forced swim or inescapable foot shock, they often develop deficits in memory and learning tasks (e.g. Active Avoidance) and they often show analgesic reactions (S.I.A. Stress-Induced Analgesia).
The Ugo Basile Set-Up for Learned Helplessness is based on a sophisticated generator of unpredictable random shocks...
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...
Atlantis System allows platforms in a Morris Water Maze to rise gently to near the surface or go down automatically, using the manual controller or TTL signals. From one to four platform systems available.
Enables extinction protocols on rats or mice. No need to stop the test to manually remove or reposition platforms.
A test for spatial learning and long-term memory in rodents. For research into neurocognitive disorders and treatments, aging, drug-abuse, neural systems, neurotransmitters and brain development.
High quality, strong and low weight. Embedded wheels for easy movement. Easy to drain and clean. Add optional Atlantis System to extend test capabilities. Different colors available.
Widely used to measure preference and spatial memory and learning tasks in laboratory animals. The simple T-shape design provides a single choice point with only two alternatives. Especially for CNS disorder studies.
High quality maze with rat and mouse versions. Provides optimal results with video tracking software (high contrast, non reflective). Surface texture selected for rodent...
A simple Y-shape design provides rodents with a single choice point with only two alternatives. Widely used to measure preference and spatial memory and learning tasks in laboratory animals.
High quality maze with rat and mouse versions. Provides optimal results with video tracking software (high contrast, non reflective). Surface texture selected for rodent comfort. Easy to set up,...
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.

The Open Field is used to assess exploratory behavior. Validated for use in the measurement of anxiety related behaviors. Also suited to the novel object recognition (NOR) test.
Decreased anxiety leads to increased exploratory behavior. Increased anxiety results in less locomotor motion and preference for the edges of the field.
A warmer to provide external heat to animals undergoing surgery. Helps to maintain near-normal body temperature for improved surgical outcomes (such as fewer adverse cardiac events and reduced blood loss).
Preprogrammed animal temperatures, easy-to-use control, lightweight with small footprint. Select Rodent Warmer X2 for simultaneous control of 2 independent heating pads.
Automatically scores wheel rotations, corresponding to rodent escape behaviors. A primary screening test for antidepressants.
