RAT ENCLOSURE AND SENSOR PLATE

Model HSM2001

Rat Enclosure and Sensor Plate
 
   
 

DETAILS

The HSM2001 Rat Insert with Sensing Plate is a complete package that is easily installed and removed from the HSM1000 Test Station for simplified cleaning and maximum throughput. Since enclosure, sensing plate, and refuse tray are all together it is just as simple to change from one size animal to another.

STRESS AFFECTS BEHAVIOR AND TUBES INDUCE STRESS

Other systems continue to place animals into tubes even though tubes have long been known to create stress. This unique restraint design contains the subject consistently over the sensing transducer while still providing an ample sensation of freedom of movement. The key is in the adjustable ceiling which allows the subject increased headroom without permitting ambulations or rearings. Once a ceiling height is determined, you may leave the ceiling at that level for the entire study, there is no need to lift the ceiling for each animal.

DURABILITY

The feet on the transducer assembly have been moved to a special anchor plate. A rugged piezo disk assembly replaces the delicate load cell used in other systems. The piezo material is encapsulated and factory calibratied for optimal results, and is not easily affected by user handling.

HIGHER THROUGHPUT WITH LESS CLEANING

We listened to the comments of experienced scientists and research assistants who have suffered for years with cleaning problems. Active labs report spending over an hour just cleaning large systems. Our unique refuse tray is built right into the sensing tray to gather and contain waste. For cleaning, you simply remove the sensing plate, rinse it, and you are ready to proceed with the next session. We want you performing studies, not cleaning refuse.
