Tail Flick Analgesia Meters

Tail Flick Analgesia Meters system features radiant heat applied on the animal's tail; when the animal feels discomfort, it reacts by a sudden tail's movement which automatically stops the stimulation and the timer for the measurement of the animal reaction time. This test has proved particularly sensitive for studying the analgesic properties of pharmacological substances. It can also be used to evaluate basal thermal pain sensitivity or to study putative genetic differences among animals without drug ('na├»ve').
