Automated formalin test - Animal model of Neuropathic pain

Newsletter # 45



Animal models

Formalin test in rodents involves multiple mechanisms and thus allows detection of large spectrum of classes of drugs with antinociceptive potential. In particular, the similarities between the underlying mechanisms of the tonic pain response to formalin and that of neuropathic pain are of great interest.


Manual counting of pain behaviour by an observer is a hassle and time-consuming endeavour.

NEUROFIT implements a system capable of automated detection of mouse flinches to measure pain behaviour.


NEUROFIT offers a range of validated in vitro and in vivo screening tests for psychiatry and neurology.
