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 of 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.
