TRUE TAIL TEMPERATURE OPTION

Model I-T

True Tail Temperature Option
 
   
 

DETAILS

This optional feature allows automatic preheating of the tail. To ensure experiment protocols to be precisely controlled and repeated. This feature allows the user to SET the TAIL temperature at which the test is to be started at up to 75° C. Once that preset temperature is reached the test and the timer starts automatically and after the tail flicks the timer and light stop and the result is displayed. Readout will now show in repeatable sequence the start and end temperatures as well as test time. This unique feature will also store the set temperature unless otherwise changed eliminiating temperature variations from test to test, there is no other unit on this market with these one of a kind features. We recommend that animals be restrained with one of the IITC restrainers.

 

This unit solves the problem associated with "tail temperature prior to and at the end of testing." See article: KJELL HOLE AND ARNE TJOLSEN: The Tail-Flick Formalin Test in Rodents: Changes in Skin Temperature as a Confounding Factor. Pain 53 (1993) pages. 247-254 Elsevier).
