Rodent Holders (Panlab)
Panlab holders for rodents are commonly used in behavioral experiments requiring an animal contention, immobilization or a limitation of the animal movements/displacements, such as non-invasive blood pressure, tail-fllick and startle reflex tests.
- Perpex cylinders
- Sliding doors
- Slot for the tail
- Available in 6 different sizes
The holders are manufactured from Perspex cylinders mounted on a flat black Perspex base. All the models have free access through both extremes, by opening the respective tilting door that is fixed by a screw at the upper part of the restrainer.
Animals can be immobilised by sliding the doors along the restrainer. A slot in the base of the door allows for the whole tail to be available for the pulse transducer and cuff installation, the i.v. drug administration or the blood extraction.
Specially designed holders for startle reflex experiments are built on an opened base for allowing free animal contact with the grid and then providing shocks. Additional screws are available for a strong fixation of the holder on the grid avoiding any displacement due to the animal movements during the experiment.
The easy operation of the doors and its disposition on the extremes of the restrainer makes the manipulation of the animal convenient and avoids the animal to be dragged backwards, protecting it from injuries in the feet.
Available in 6 different sizes, the holder cover all the range of rat & mice.
