The first Rota-Rod was made commercially available from Ugo Basile many years ago. Since then, thousands of papers have been published and the “Rota-Rod” technique (originated by a 1957 paper of N.W Dunham and T.S Miya) has proved to be of great value in research involving screening of drugs which are potentially active on motory coordination.
The Ugo Basile Rota-Rod is the result of many years of research in co-operation with the latest development in behavioural and pharmacological research.
The new Rota-Rod for Rats has four lanes and operates in constant speed, accelerating, and reverse / rocking modes.The tiltable digital panel shows accrued rotations and time on the rod.The Rota-Rod includes software for connection to PC, and parameters can be controlled via your PC.
