Operant Pain Testing

Velocity Laboratories provides an independent third-party, high-throughput service for preclinical operant pain testing. Our validated reward-conflict-based operant assay evaluates the sensory and affective aspects of pain, better reflecting the human pain condition and offering a major advantage over standard reflex-based pain testing systems.

Addiction liability is a legitimate concern in the development of analgesics. Velocity Laboratories offers the necessary addiction liability screening to complement pain outcome studies to provide a more complete evaluation of your prospective analgesics.



Velocity Laboratories has extensive expertise in the preclinical pain and addiction fields. Following study completion, we provide multilevel data analyses based on your needs. Additionally, Velocity Laboratories can provide independent consulting services in design, implementation, and interpretation of preclinical analgesia and abuse liability studies as a stand-alone service.
