Apparatus for measuring the mobility of the rat under intracerebral microdialysis.
This computer acquisition and analysis system of the mobility of the rat under intracerebral
microdialysis is comprised of a chamber with a support equipped with a pendulum connected to
a motor. This motor sends an electrical signal proportional to the intensity of the movements of
the animal in the cage; this gives its activity.
Designed for intracerebral micro dialysis experiments, the device records the rest time and
activity time of the rodent, which moves freely in its environment.
A bottle and pellet site for combined animal behavior and microdialysis studies of varying
lengths is planned.
- Transparent enclosure with lid 28x28x40 cm (LxWxH)
- Acquisition unit can manage up to 16 devices
- Record swings by programmable time units
- 1 Excel file per animal with raised intensity of movement and time of animal activity
- Bottle and pellet site
