Scurry Mouse Activity Wheel with Dual Lickometer

Model 80822S

 

This unit combines all the features of the Mouse Activity Wheel Chamber with those of the Triple Lickometer. The chamber is fitted with two sipper tubes due to the size limitation.

 

The 80822S Mouse Activity Wheel with Dual Lickometer retains all the features of the 80820S Mouse Activity Wheel Chamber for long term circadian rhythm and general activity studies.  In addition, the end of the chamber formerly reserved for the hopper and one water bottle is now fitted with a stainless steel floor to provide contact for two 50 ml bottles with sipper tubes.  A separate food hopper has been placed on a hanging bracket so that it can be easily removed from the chamber when not needed.  Bottles may be easily removed without disconnecting any wires. Cover plates are included for studies requiring fewer than two tubes.

A small amount of standard bedding may be placed on that portion of the tub with wheel and food hopper when present.
