A valuable tool to study social behavior in rodents. It is especially useful for research on autism disease, parental behavior, sociability, dominance and social memory (social novelty). High quality mouse and rat grids are easy to use and clean. The specific grey base provides unsurpassed contrast for the best video-tracking outcome. Non-smooth surface texture for best rodent comfort and...
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...
Based on where a mouse with free movement spends its time in a central arena area with stimulus animals (familiar/unfamiliar/dominant/different gender) positioned in chambers on the outer edge. For research into impairments in social skills that are central to mental disease and developing tools for their assessment in mouse models as well as smell related behavior (anosmia).
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...
The Delta-maze is a custom modification of the T-maze, a special design made possible by the extreme adaptability of our MultiMaze system 41500. The newest scientific research approaches, based on the available current technologies, often combine different methods in the same test in order to obtain more detailed and more interesting data. As an example, more and more often scientists need to...
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.
A 2-compartment box that offers visual and tactile differences. For evaluating the abuse potential of substances and the motivational effects of drugs in mice or rats.
Interchangeable floors, optimized for use with video-tracking software or visual scoring, thanks to the grey, high-contrast color and non-smooth, non-reflective paint.
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.
