- The first and original device designed specifically to measure paw volume and its changes (swelling) in rodents. Almost 3000 bibliographic citations since the 1960s!
- Our Plethysmometer 37140 displays the exact paw volume on the graphic LCD read-out. Small differences are detected by a transducer of original design.
- The 37140 is provided with a pedal holding-command which freezes the reading, enabling the operator to concentrate his/her attention on the paw dipping.
- The paw volume is shown on the multifunction graphic display in four digits, with 0.01 ml resolution. A zero key is provided to zero the meter before each measurement.
- Measuring cells are available in different sizes.
- Communication with the PC is managed by the dedicated Software 52050-02, included as standard

A Plethysmometer is an instrument designed to measure small changes in volume, usually via the displacement of water.
In the 60s, Ugo Basile designed the first original device, designed specifically to measure paw swelling in rodents, since then, thousands of scientists have relied on our Plethysmometer to conduct their research on inflammation, publishing almost 3000 scientific papers!
The instrument is typically used to measure precisely the experimentally induced inflammation of the paw in rodents, and its changes due to administration of pharmacologiacal substances potentially active on inflammation.
