Test pain and inflammation in small animal hind limbs Precise programmable digital control Start, stop and reset test from controller’s front panel 180-270 gram holder included (other sizes available) Reaction detected automatically Manual override of all timer functions Alphanumeric readout 5 to 999 seconds test period Alphanumeric readout All functions and parameters entered via key-pad Two-year warranty Benefits Overcomes the drawback of placing unnecessary stress on the animals Applications Test pain and inflammation in the hind limbs of mice, rats or birds The Incapacitance Meter uses a technique called dual channel weight averaging, which tests both hind limbs. This gives you a clean, stress-free correlation of the paw pressure test. Conduct control and testing of the animal at the same time. Place the animal in the holder with its hind limbs resting on the two weight-averaging platform pads. The controller records the average weight (grams) over the test period as the animal shifts its weight from each pad.
