Tail Suspension Test

 

This test allows fast evaluation of drugs (anti-depressants, sedatives)  psycho-tropic effects. The measuring principle is based on the energy developed by mice trying to escape from their suspension.

During the test, the movements of the mice are analysed in terms of force, energy and power developed over time. 

 

 

The System presents a completely automated test, including the suspension cages (6 mice per cage) and the software to run, record and analyze the experiments.  The software presents the results and can transfer into Excel for statistical analysis.
