Detailed Product Description
Medicraft Electro Medicals present a unique apparatus the MEDICRAFT DIGITAL PHOTO - ACTOMETER to study the effects on spontaneous ambulatory activities of small animals such as rats and mice to evaluate the effects of the drugs on the Central Nervous system.
The use and operation are very simple and as such it makes use of other cumbersome equipments like Jiggle Cage, Work Adder, etc., obsolete and thus makes the researcher more dynamic.
The Medicraft Digital Photo - Actometer utilizes OPTO - ELECTRONICS System by using highly sensitive Solid State Invisible Light receivers and transmitters.
It consists of an Activity Cage or Well 30 x 30 x 30 cm in dimension with a wire mesh floor. Six pairs of Light transmitters and receivers are placed around the outer periphery of the activity cage so that it forms a mesh of beam in shape of square checks at a suitable height from the floor of the activity cage. The locomotive activity of the animal is recorded when it interrupts any one or more light beams. The interrupted light signals are further converted into electrical ones through a compact solid state circuitry and the activity is recorded on a bright high speed Digital Counter for display. The light beam arrangement is such that one animal under trail cannot block the all the light beams so formed. Thus it makes the apparatus suitable to use with a single animal or with a group.
