Principle of the test

The tail suspension test allows a fast and reliable screening of the psychotropic properties (anti-depressants, sedatives) of drugs on rodents. 

The tail-suspension test was developed as an alternative to the Forced Swimming test, yet the concept remains the same. Rodents, suspended by their tail, innately attempt to escape from this aversive situation. However,following failed attempts to escape, they experience despair and become immobile. The magnitude of immobility is considered to be correlated with the depressive-like state of the subjects and is significantly decreased by antidepressants.

The parameters currently evaluated are:

  • total time spent immobile
  • latency to the first event of immobility
  • etc...

NEW Tail Suspension Box Optimized for Video-Tracking Use!

The Panlab Tail suspension box (TST) consists in a box with 3 compartments, so to carry out experiment simultaneously on 3 experimental subjects at the same time.

NEW Modular Background Panels! The box is provided with modular background panels with 3 choices of colour (black/grey and white/translucid panels)

The box is also made of non-reflecting and odour-resistance material for an optimized use with a video-tracking system. Our user-friendly SMART video-tracking sofware is our recommend solution to run, record, analyse and replay the experiments at will.

The beam balance test (or beam walking assay) is used to assess fine motor coordination and balance in rodents, especially in experimental models associated with an alteration of the motor skills (brain injury, genetic manipulations, and/or pharmacological treatments…).

The goal of this test is for the subject to stay upright and walk across an elevated narrow beam to a safe box/platform. This test usually takes several consecutive days of test: some days of training and 1 day of testing. Performance on the beam is quantified by measuring the time it takes for the subject to cross the beam and the number of paw slips that occur in the process.

This task is particularly useful for detecting subtle deficits in motor skills and balance that may not be detected by other motor tests, such as the Rotarod.


The Panlab beam balance test is composed of:

  • A goal box (15 cm wide, 22 cm deep, 18 cm high)
  • 2 tripods - adjustable height from 50 to 130 cm and with built-in level to check horizontality
  • 4 ledge tapered beams (120 cm long) with following width dimensions:
    • 0.5 cm upper beam width on 2.2 cm bottom beam width
    • 2 cm upper beam width on 4 cm bottom beam width
    • 1.5 cm upper beam width on 5.5 cm bottom beam width
    • 6 cm upper beam width on 10 cm bottom beam width

The beam can be horizontal or the tripods height can be adjusted to make a slope.

The goal box and beams are easy to remove/assemble using manual screws below the beam.


The 76-116/LE782CN “catch net” can be used to ensure that the animals do not injure themselves if they fall (optional item).
