37370 - Plantar Test (Hargreaves Apparatus)

The new Plantar Test Instrument (Hargreave’s Method) measures response to infrared heat stimulus.

Focus the infrared source below the Plantar surface and with the press of a button … latency to paw withdrawal and infrared intensity are recorded automatically (i.e. no manual scoring!).   Classically the measurement of acute nociceptive thermal threshold in laboratory animals has primarily relied upon the tail flick and hot plate methods. Although both methods are still used frequently in pharmacological studies, they are not without limitation. In addition, neither method has been extended to investigating behavioural responses to hyperalgesia.   The Plantar Test represents a remarkable advance in methodology, as it combines the best features of all other methods of measuring pain sensitivity. Unique to the Plantar Test, the animal is unrestrained during experiments. Moreover, time latency is recorded automatically by a fiber optic sensor, without having to rely on the experimenter observation of the animal behaviour.   Data appear on the front panel and may be exported to a memory stick, or to computer via USB; software is included.
