MouseMet Cold

MouseMet COLD is our latest development. Sucking heat out is a lot more difficult than putting it in, and requires a lot more power, but we've done it! Our COLD transducer has the same physical shape as MouseMet EvF and MouseMet HOT, it's just a bit bulkier and heavier.

Like MouseMet HOT, our COLD stimulus is:

 

  • Battery powered

  • Rotary in action

  • Has a 1g touch-on force to activate the stimulus

  • Has a 2mm probe tip

  • Still works with the same MouseMet runs.

  • Cooling rate of 2°C/sec down to 0°C

  • Optional preheat to skin temperature

  • 1g touch-on force

  • 2mm probe tip with Stirling Silver measurement arm

  • 90 second measurement interval

  • Runs off two PP3 rechargeable cells in the handles

MouseMet COLD is currently under validation at a number of test sites around the world. We expect it to be available for purchase in the second half of 2022
