The IITC Life Science Rotarod is used to assess the effect of drugs on the motor coordination or fatigue resistance on mice and rats using one unit in a safe and humane way. Extremely user friendly; the animals are placed on textured drums to avoid slipping. When an animal drops onto the individual sensing platforms below, its test results are recorded.
IITC's Rota rod test has the capabilities of having up to five mice or rats tested at any given time.
The user can select from one to five lanes to be included in the experiment. For mice experiments 1¼ inch diameter drums are supplied and for rat experiments 3¾ inch diameter drums are supplied. All that is needed is a standard phillips screwdriver to change the drums, no other tools required.
