The Vogel test is a conflict test has become a standard for fast screening the potential anxiolytic properties of drugs. In this procedure, the drinking behavior is punished by mild electrical shocks leading to a significant reduction of water consumption in deprived animals. Drinking responses are then reestablished by drugs with anxiolytic properties.

The Panlab Vogel test consists of a standard home cage associated with a grid floor. An electronic unit associated with a special nipple ensures the detection and counting of the licks reflecting the animal drinking behavior. Using an exclusive nipple design, any casual and non-specific contacts of the animal with the nipple will not be considered as a drinking response.

A multi-cage configuration allows running simultaneously the Vogel test in up to 32 cages. Each home cage is associated with one lick sensor/Shock generator (76-0334). Each 8 lick sensor/Shock generators are connected to a link box (76-0156) and up to 8 link boxes can be connected in daisy chain. The PackWin software is used for protocol edition, data acquisition and data analysis.

The interconnection among the last link box of the chain and the computer is carry out through a RS232/USB communication. The test can be run on a Laptop.
