Mouse RotaRod NG  Featured  The “Rota-Rod” technique is essential in screening drugs potentially active, or having side effects, on motor coordination. Ugo Basile designed the original RotaRod, the first industrial Rota Rod almost 50 years ago, based on the 1957 paper by N.W Dunham and T.S Miya. The 47650 Rota-Rod NG (Next Generation), is an evolution of the original model and the result of many years of research in cooperation with the latest development in behavioral and pharmacological research.
