Dynamic Weight Bearing :  imbalance weight distribution in freely moving animal.

  • Presentation

    The dynamic weight bearing is based on an instrumented floor-cage combined with a video recording to evaluate spontaneous pain in freely moving rodents. Neurofit implements this test to assess the efficacy of your compounds acting on neuromuscular activity.

    Model for peripheral nerve regeneration. It serves to evaluate therapeutic intervention that might boost axonal regeneration.


    The pain induced by the injection of dilute formalin solution is persistent (tonic) and comprises neurogenic and inflammatory components.

  • Streptozotocin

    Diabetic neuropathy can be studied in rat following streptozotocin administration which induces a rapid and persistent hyperglycaemia.

    Measure of neuromuscular junction function and fiber morphometry

    Measurement of electrophysiological parameters such as SNCV and CMAP are useful tools to assess the neuromuscular junction function.
