ANXIETY METER

For

THE STUDY OF ANXIOLYTIC DRUGS

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, Model No. 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.
