16U Rat Modular Chamber with Touch Screen

Model 80016TS

 

Rat Modular Operant Chamber equipped with an extra tall test area and touch screen. Shown with accessories.

 

Lafayette Instrument Company is proud to introduce its new Rat Touch Screen Chamber. Using our unique modular chamber design combined with some of the leading software in cognitive assessment, the new chamber provides space to perform both cognitive and operant experiments. The Model 80016TS is virtually identical in function to the Model 80004TS chamber, but it contains a taller test area.

Modular panels covering one side of the chamber allow customers to customize and position levers, pellet feeders, stimulus lights, and more. The opposing side is completely covered by a touch screen monitor with a protective layer allowing for the largest possible stimulus presentation / response area.

The chamber is controlled through Lafayette Instrument's versatile ABET II hardware and Whisker's Control system. Users may run predefined test batteries from ABET II for Touch Software, Model 89505 (Touch screen training, Reversal learning, Delayed matching) or create their own.

Note: Model 80016TS is for the chamber and grid floor only. It does not include the chamber accessories shown in the photo, a control, or a power supply. These items should be ordered separately as needed. We would be happy to assist with the design of a complete test system.


Features

  • Easily Removable top with just Four (4) large Thumbscrews
  • Large Stainless Steel waste pan slides in and out without catching on channels for easier removal.
  • Smooth pan rails that eliminate the gap between the pan and the modular panels found in other systems. This eliminates a potential distraction and creates a test environment that is easier to clean.
  • Channel Supports that cannot twist for no-bind module removal.
  • A heavy-duty latch that is easier to close and cannot be accidentally opened.
  • A full line of modules are available including nose pokes, simple tone, tone with intensity control, variable frequency tone, stimulus light with or without intensity level, standard or extra thick response levers, pellet or liquid reward, simple receptacle, or receptacle with door, head entry detection, and light.
  • Available for basic operant studies, drug discrimination, drug self-administration, or other applications with or without sound attenuating cubicles.
  • LIC Operant Chambers run on ABET Interface and Programming Systems
