Startle Response System

SR-LAB™ startle response system is your best choice for startle reflex testing. The system’s design ensures accurate results for all paradigms. You will not be limited by the software to any specific paradigms, either—it supports any paradigm while ensuring your data is saved in a single-file for easy retrieval and export. Test up to 16 animals at one time in SDI’s unique tubular enclosures which eliminate restraint stress and keep the animal in place to gather the most reliable data. The SR-LABTMstartle response system is the world’s most widely used startle reflex behavioral research system and the most successful for measuring startle habituation, pre-pulse inhibition (PPI) and Fear Potentiated Startle (FPS). Execute any and all startle reflex testing paradigms using the SR-LAB Software and specialized additional kits—and ensure accuracy using SR-LAB’s proprietary accelerometer which accommodates the rapid force changes in startle testing. The only system of its kind that expands to 16 test stations, your SR-LAB™ will test a large number of animals at any given time. It will also test animals of varying sizes—from the smallest mouse to the largest rat using one of five sizes of easily changeable animal enclosures.
