The MEDICRAFT ANALGESIOMETER Mark III

efficient and quick method of screening analgesics.
The MEDICRAFT ANALGESIOMETER - III or
Eddy’s Hot Plate consists of a clear plastic chamber, floor of which is
heated to the required degree of temperature between 30 to 80°C and
maintained constant within a few degrees by a solid state temperature
controller and indicating galvanometer.
The test animals may be inserted either from
the top of the chamber or by tilting the chamber. Provision exists from
inserting a thermometer.
