During the evaluation or screening of
anti-anxiety drugs, one has to produce or induce fear or anxiety in the rats
or mice under test.
The MEDICRAFT ANXIETY-METER,
656mp is the only
answer for conducting such test by inducing fear or anxiety in an animal
under test. The animal is made to lick water from the dispenser. After
predetermined number of licks (20 default) the punishment shock is delivered
to the animal if any further lick is attempted during the punishment
duration. After the punishment duration the cycle is repeated. The licks
attempted and shock delivered are recorded and displayed.
The MEDICRAFT ANXIETY-METER
consists of an animal cage with Stainless Steel Grid floor and water
dispenser along with an Electronic controller unit. The controller is housed
in a M.S. sheet metal cabinet over which the animal cage is fixed.
