ROTA ROD WITH TOUCHSCREEN, FOR 5 MICE
ROTA ROD WITH TOUCHSCREEN, FOR 5 MICE
Contact our Behavioral Research Specialists for more information

Rota Rods provide an easy way to test the effects of drugs, brain damage, or diseases on motor coordination as well as fatigue resistance in rodents. Now even easier to use! The NEW touchscreen graphic user interface allows clear visualization of timing and speed for each lane. Change modes, adjust speed, and create protocols right from the main screen for greater flexibility with maximum functionality and usability.

The mouse model has five lanes to accommodate a maximum of five animals per run. The animal is placed on the roller lane of the unit and the timer starts. When the animal drops from the roller to the trip plate below, the time latency to fall is recorded, in minutes and seconds, as well as rotational speed for each lane. The unit is controlled by an advanced microprocessor to provide precise timing control and ultra-accurate speed accurate speed regulation. Rotation can be electronically set at a constant speed (4-40 rpm). Acceleration mode can also be selected at a defined time (30 sec to 10 minutes in 1 second increments).

The NEW touchscreen graphic user interface allows clear visualization of timing and speed for each lane. Change modes, adjust speed, and create protocols right from the main screen for greater flexibility with maximum functionality and usability.

The rat model has four lanes to accommodate a maximum of four animals per run. The animal is placed on the roller lane of the unit and the timer starts. When the animal drops from the roller to the trip plate below, the time latency to fall is recorded, in minutes and seconds, as well as rotational speed for each lane. The unit is controlled by an advanced microprocessor to provide precise timing control and ultra-accurate speed accurate speed regulation.

The combined system for both both mice and rats comes with two interchangeable drums, one for mice with a 30 mm diameter rod and the other for rat with a 60 mm diameter rod. Both drums on this model have four lanes to accommodate a maximum of four subjects per run. The animal is placed on the roller lane of the unit and the timer starts. When the animal drops from the roller to the trip plate below, the time latency to fall is recorded, in minutes and seconds, as well as rotational speed for each lane. The unit is controlled by an advanced microprocessor to provide precise timing control and ultra-accurate speed accurate speed regulation. Rotation can be electronically set at a constant speed (4-40 rpm). Acceleration mode can also be selected at a defined time (30 sec to 10 minutes, in 1 second increments).

The large rat model has two wider (6 in) lanes to accommodate a maximum of two animals per run. The animal is placed on the roller lane of the unit and the timer starts. When the animal drops from the roller to the trip plate below, the time latency to fall is recorded, in minutes and seconds, as well as rotational speed for each lane.
