The new Stoelting Rota-Rod provides an easy way to test the effects of drugs, brain damage, or diseases on motor coordination or fatigue resistance in rodents.
The Stoelting Rota-Rod is very easy to use. Simply place the animal on the roller drum and start the timer. When the animal stops running, it drops safely into its own lane; time (minutes and seconds) and rotating speed are recorded automatically. A removable upper separator is included to prevent interference between animals running in adjacent lanes.
The Stoelting Rota-Rod Treadmill is provided with a RS232 port and SEDACOM software that allows transfer and storage of data to a computer. The data can be shown and printed out in real time. Data is collected in ASCII format for full exportability to other programs.
