Principle of the mouse tail dolorimeter
As you can see from the mouse tail dolorimeter photo, a beam of light uses to apply pain to the mouse.
In other words, the beam of light is irradiated on the tail of the mouse or rat to produce a heating effect, which causes pain to the mouse tail.
The mouse will then lash its tail if the pain is caused by the light beyond the threshold pain value.
Features of the mouse tail pain threshold detector
- Numerically controlled frequency modulation makes the heating light stable and easy to adjust
- The processed infrared light can raise the temperature evenly
- The accuracy of time recording is up to 0.01 seconds
- The dolorimeter can hold the mouse or rat vertically to make the tail easy to fix for the experiment
- Optional for manual timing and automatic photoelectric timing
- Built-in printer

Precautions for use
First, turn off the power and put it in a dry and ventilated place for long-term storage.
Besides, there is a high voltage inside the pain detector, and non-professional personnel is forbidden to open the device, which may result in electrical shock to the person or irreversible damage to the detector.
