The Horizontal Ladder test is a motor and coordination test for evaluating skilled walking for mice and rats. Steps are counted and classified as either correct/functional paw placement, a slip, or a miss. Fore & hind-limb coordination can be assessed further by removing individual ladder rungs to evaluate how the rodent targets individual rungs.
The animals are required to walk on a horizontal rung ladder spontaneously with varied spacing between rungs. The MazeEngineers horizontal ladder allows for the removal of individual rungs. Flexibly made to clamp to end plates to allow for aversive or rewarded locomotion. Clear walls allow for easy video recording.
ConductScience’s Automatic Lens Implantation Locator is a precision instrument used for Grin Lens implantation surgery in deep-brain calcium imaging experiments. The instrument accurately controls the stepper motor through computer software, and then drives the locator operating arm to move, combined with the vacuum pump automatic precision Remove the brain tissue to better implant the lens. The experiment greatly reduced the damage caused by traditional manual operations to the animal brain, thereby improving the quality of neuronal imaging and the success rate of the experiment.
Oxygen Flowmeter is used to accurately control the gas flow rate. The flowmeter mounting plate and fixing screws can be added to the RWD large and small animal anesthesia machine fixed bracket to control the air source input flow rate of the RWD anesthesia machine.
And with the international standard ISO connector, the lower end is connected with an 8mm PVC pipe or silicone tube for gas source input, and the upper end is connected to the evaporator through a short section of 6mm silicone tube.
In addition, the oxygen flow meter and the laughing gas flow meter can also be used in parallel. After the oxygen and the laughing gas are mixed, they are mixed with isoflurane or sevoflurane through the evaporator to output mixed anesthetic gas to achieve better anesthesia and analgesia.
The Fear Conditioning Chamber is a behavioral task used in neuroscience to assess associative learning. We have carefully designed our chamber to allow new scientific avenues and to allow easy data collection and experimental execution.
ConductScience offers the Fear Conditioning Chamber.
