NEWS: Mousemet used by University of Mississippi in cancer pain study. “Mousemet EvF provided our behavioral endpoint to quantify tactile allodynia and its attenuation in this mouse CIN model. It is a terrific piece of instrumentation that has led us to a novel approach for treating CIN.” Dr K Sufka, Professor of Psychology, Pharmacology & Philosophy. Click here for the CNN newsfeed about the research agreement now formed with NEMUS Bioscience.

“MouseMet Thermal eliminates the 30-60 min acclimation time we had with the Hargreaves, enabling testing of compounds with short duration of action” Dr Jennifer Deuis, University of Queensland.

“It’s the Cadillac of EvF” Hannah Marie Harris MA (University of Mississippi)

RECENT PAPERS: MouseMet thermal has now been validated by a leading laboratory: Deuis and Vetter (2016) The thermal probe test: a novel behavioral assay to quantify thermal paw withdrawal thresholds in mice. Temperature, Vol 3, Iss 2. DOI:10.1080/23328940.2016.1157668

PRICES:  Our starter system for MouseMet EvF is fully upgradeable and is available, ex-works for £1950. Please email mike@topcatmetrology.co.uk for the full price list and to discuss availability.

THE ADVANTAGE: Studies make use of many mice. In a new environment, they need to explore, and nociceptive testing can only start when they have settled. Time is wasted and the mice are stressed each time they are moved to another environment. MouseMet (and RatMet) allow the measurement of mechanical (EvF) AND thermal thresholds in the same runs and make a considerable contribution to the 3Rs. And with additional sets of runs, the acclimation time is removed completely. For price and availability, please email mike@topcatmetrology.co.uk
