The IITC Tail Flick Test apparatus meter measures latency and/or temperature threshold when detecting properties of narcotic and strong non-narcotic drugs on mice and rats. A built-in Timer is automatically stopped when the animals’ tail flicks out of the beam of light, test result will be displayed on readout for viewing.

An overhead halogen light source is in a constant “ON” (idle state). A pre-focused heat source supplies an area of 4X6mm stimulation to the tail. A built-in sensor in the tail groove detects the tail flick of the animal. The tail groove is a non-metallic material to avoid unnecessary conditioning of your animals; unlike other systems. If the animal does not flick their tail within the pre programmed cut-off time; the heat source shuts off automatically; avoiding tissue damage. Built-in timer displays the reaction time in 0.01 second increments. Control of system can be from either the front panel or supplied footswitch: Start, Stop and Reset of tests.
