Tail-flick apparatus is an analgesia meter and is helpful in
determining pain sensitivity accurately and reproducibly in rats
and mice. The instrument has a shutter controlled lamp as a heat
source. Activation of an intense light beam to the tail through
opening the shutter results in a discomfort at some point when
the animal will flick its tail out of the beam. The photo
detector detects the tail motion. The total time elapsed between
shutter opening and animal's reaction is displayed on an easily
read display. Data can be printed directly or may be collected
via RS-232 port. If you need more information, please provide
your street address. I will be happy to send you more information
about Tail-flick apparatus.
