Columbus Instruments Cold/Hot Plate Analgesia Meter


Now discontinued - Click Here for alternative

The Cold/Hot Plate Analgesia Meter utilizes a metal plate which can be heated to 79.9degC and cooled to 5degC. An electronic thermostat maintains the plate's temperature and a front panel digital thermometer displays the current plate temperature.

The front panel timer then displays the number of seconds it took the subject to react to the thermal stimulus. This reaction time is a measurement of sensitivity and is used to measure the efficacy of analgesics. In addition to displaying the reaction time, the Cold / Hot Plate Analgesia Meter is capable of sending the same information via RS-232 interface to a computer.

The operator can start and stop the timer with the front panel start/stop switch or with the included footswitch, which allows "hands-free" operation.
