Built for long-lasting durability and easy cleaning, our front / top-loading operant chamber is constructed of .032 inch stainless steel and .25 inch polycarbonate. The base is made of high density polyethylene that is stain- and scent-resistant. This cage is prepunched to handle 4 press bars, 4 nose pokes and 4 stimulus lights (two on each end), as well as a pellet dispenser and liquid drop dispenser on one end. The top will accommodate an omnidirectional lever, and the removable floor is made of shockable grid rods. This chamber is also available with a non-shock stainless steel floor. See Model 80003NS for details. Animal Working Area: 8.5 x 8.5 x 11 inches (21.6 x 21.6 x 27.9 cm).

The 80003 chambers are used in all student animal learning test systems. For the research lab, one should also consider the 80004 Modular Test Chambers. Although side and top panels of the 80003 chambers can be customized to satisfy your needs, in most cases Model 80004 or Model 80004NS Modular Test Chambers are recommended.

Note: Model 80003 is for the chamber and grid floor only. It does not include chamber accessories, a control, or power supply. These items should be ordered separately as needed. We would be happy to assist with the design of a complete testing system.
