Analgesia meter is an apparatus which measures pain sensitivity 
in laboratory animals especially in rats and mice. Tail-flick 
apparatus is one of the analgesia meter which is used by 
scientist working on neuromuscular physiology. The instrument has 
a shutter controlled lamp which provides heat source. Activation 
of an intense light beam to the tail through opening 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. For getting information, please provide 
your street address. I will be happy to send you information on 
Tail-flick apparatus.
