Automates the assessment of “touch sensitivity” on the plantar surface of rats or mice. For assessment of hypersensitivity and allodynia for analgesia, nociceptive, neuropathic and postsurgical studies.
Unique automation features save significant time for the researcher.
Records and analyses thermal preference phenotyping in mice, according to Zimmermann's method. For neuropathic pain studies, temperature sensitivity and insensitivity assessment, always with the animal freely moving and with no user’s intervention.
Novel circular design. Addresses limitations associated with classic devices. Cost effective. Reproducible data.
Measures mechanical sensitivity thresholds in rodents. For assessment of hypersensitivity and allodynia for analgesia, nociceptive, neuropathic and postsurgical studies.
Original design with clear prism for fast localization of stimulation site and reduced animal stress. Digital data display.
Screens thermal hyperalgesia and mechanical allodynia, conditions often observed in patients with chronic pain. Also, for testing analgesic drugs.
Fixed or increasing temperature (RAMP) modes for dynamic experiments. Reaches user-defined temperatures within minutes. Touch screen or X-PAD software for setting up and monitoring tests, including complex temperature ramps.
Identifies temperature sensitivity and nociceptive pain thresholds. For pathophysiological exploration of animal pain models and pharmacological assessment of analgesic drugs. Often called the Two-Temperature Choice Test.
Easy touch screen controls for setting up and monitoring tests. Fast data portability. Fixed or ramp temperatures for dynamic experiments.
Used to measure the paw withdrawal reflex when the mouse or rat paw is unexpectedly touched. For evaluating mechanical allodynia and cutaneous sensation levels. Popular non-invasive technique.
Aesthesio® set of 20 monofilaments based on the Semmes Weinstein monofilament set. An ascending series of increasingly stiff filaments (from 0.008 to 300 grams). Features retractable head to...
