Rat Paw Pressure

The Randall & Selitto test is based on determination of the animal threshold response to pain induced in the paw by the application of a uniformly increasing pressure. In the paw-pressure, a stimulation unit allows the gradual increase of the pressure applied on the animal paw. The pressure increase is achieved by a step-motor inducing the progressive advancement of a sliding support with a distal conic tip (1 mm diameter). The conic tip is mounted on an extensiometric load cell, making possible the visualization on the digital display of the current force applied at each moment of the test (grams). The motor and tip units are mounted on a pivoting stand preventing any excess pressure on the animal paw.
