Echipament de testare PAW & TAIL - Randall Selitto
This test is based on determination of the animal threshold response to pain induced by the application of a uniformly increasing pressure on the paws or the tail.
This test can be used on both rats and mice. On rat, it is commonly used for paw pressure. On mice, it is commonly for tail pressure. It is possible to use this test on mice paw but it’s moer challenging so the experimenter needs to be particularly skilled.
In the LE7306 paw & paw pressure model, a stimulation unit allows the gradual and constant increase (at selectable rates) of the pressure applied on the animal paw or tail. The pressure increase is achieved by a step-motor inducing the progressive advancement of a sliding support with a distal tip.
The motor and tip are mounted on a pivoting stand preventing any excess pressure on the animal paw. The Control Unit makes possible the adjustment of the force transducer, balance and reset, as well as the selection of the step-motor current speed.
