HOT/COLD PLATE ANALGESIA METER
HOT/COLD PLATE ANALGESIA METER
Contact our Behavioral Research Specialists for more information

The Hot/Cold Plate Analgesia Meter can be heated to 65 and cooled to -3C with an electronic thermostat that maintains the temperature, displaying current values on the LCD display screen.  

Pain sensitivity to heat or cold is assessed by placing the animal on the an aluminum plate and starting the timer.  The operator stops the timer at the instant the animal lifts its paws from the plate, reacting from discomfort.  The front panel timer displays the latency to react, a measurement of the animal's resistance to pain.

The Hot/Cold Plate is accurate to less than 0.5C.  

System includes stimulation unit, footswitch, USB cable, software for data acquisition and user's manual.
