OLFACTORY STIMULUS INJECTION MODULE - MOUSE
OLFACTORY STIMULUS INJECTION MODULE - MOUSE
Contact our Behavioral Research Specialists for more information

This product consists of a module plate with a small, flush-mount fitting that accepts the tubing from the H15-03 Olfactory Stimulus Control on the rear of the module and allows gases to pass into the animal's working area.  It can be mounted in the bottom module position below the floor of the cage or in any other position.  See H29-05M/H29-05R Fan Module for exhausting mouse/rat cages and arenas.

The H15-03 contains a 3-unit solenoid valve manifold that permits individually gating or mixing of up to 3 gases (or 2 gases plus flushing air).  Low dead space in the manifold assures minimum mixing when changing flow from one line to another and permits rapid flushing.  The manifold is PTFE.
There are three input tube connections and a common output that be be routed to the H15-01M or H15-01R (Olfactory Stimulus Injection Module) or to the H21-09M or H21-09R Nose Poke modules to supply gases as discriminative stimuli. The inputs and outputs can be reversed so that a single gas may be selectively distributed to 1, 2, or 3 locations. Ten feet of 1/8 inch (inside diameter) tubing is supplied along with a 4-way tubing connector to connect a common gas supply to each inlet via the H15-20 In-line Olfactant Evaporation Chambers.
This unit can also be used to deliver aversive air puffs to a maximum of three locations from a common supply.
NOTE:  All feeder magazines have an injection fitting to inject olfactants or aversive air puffs into feeder magazine openings.  Fittings are also available for user installation.  Inquire to discuss details.

These chambers have an inlet and outlet barb so that clear air (or any other gas) may be passed through them.  The volume is sufficient to minimize flow-through dilution gradients for typical cuing presentations. A small amount of liquid or a swab of cotton with the proper amount of olfactant is placed in the chamber.  The olfactant evaporates int the air in the chamber.  When the solenoid valve is opened, air (or other gas) bearing the (solute) olfactory stimulus is delivered.  With a small percentage of the total volume delivered, the concentration gradient over the flow interval is minimized. A check valve is supplied with each chamber to prevent back-flow cross contamination of the olfactants in each chamber.  See also the H15-03 Olfactory Stimulus Control.
