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 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.
