General Pharmacological methods (Irwin test and similar ones on rats and mice; radioligand binding test; protein analysis and characterisation by Western-Blot; enzymatic activities test).

Proteomics (massive analysis of the differential expression of proteins in organs and fluids; study of the expression of phosphoproteins).

Pharmacology of the peripheral nervous system (local anaesthesia on rabbits).

Pharmacology of the central nervous system (drugs effects on learning and memory; brain microdyalisis; primary nerve tissue cultures of rats; immunohistochemistry; recording of extracellular synaptic potentials in slices of nerve tissue).

Psychopharmacology (antidepressant activity; antipsychotic activity; antiparkinsonian drugs valuation; anxiolytic activity; tolerance and dependence ‘in vivo’ and ‘ex vivo’; addictive potential; learning and memory tests).

Pharmacology of pain and inflammation (analgesia tests with thermal stimulation; tolerance to opioid analgesic effect; oedema induced by carrageenan and trauma; granuloma induced by pellet implantation in the rat; induced arthritis, etc.).

Gastrointestinal pharmacology (gastric emptying; intestinal transit; contractile activity; gastric acid and pepsin secretion; anti-ulcer activity; intestinal absorption).

Cardiovascular pharmacology (haemodynamic parameters in the rat; capillary permeability in the mouse; determination of vascular function in isolated arteries).

Renal pharmacology (proteinuria and creatinine lightening in the rat and diuretic activity).

Metabolism (Hypolipidemic activity; hypoglycaemic activity; plasmatic biochemistry; induced obesity models; enzymatic activities; resistance to leptin tests; cycle of glutation).

Immunology (allergen sensitisation; autoimmune models).

Ocular pharmacology (intraocular pressure assessment, mydriatic and miotic activity).


General Pharmacology Equipment.

Proteomics (Protean IEF Cell" isoelectrofocus source; "Protean Plus Dodeca Cell" two-dimensional electrophoresis cuvette; Dodeca Stainer" automatic gel stainer: 12 gels can be stained at the same time; PD-Quest 8.0.1 image analysis software).

Equipment of electrophysiology ‘in vitro’ of extracellular recording.

Pharmacology ‘in vitro’ (organ baths with stimulation; force and pressure transducers; microplate incubator; microplate incubator; microplate reader).

Neuropsychopharmacology (site-preferential conditioning box; passive avoidance boxes; rat and mouse object recognition boxes; elevated cross maze; Y-maze, etc.).

Neuropsicofarmacología (caja de condicionamiento preferencial al sitio; cajas de evitación pasiva; cajas para el reconocimiento de objetos de rata y de ratón; laberinto elevado en cruz; laberinto en “Y”, etc).

Analgesia and inflammation (hot plate; tail-flick; Randall-Selitto; stimulators; plethysmometer).

Cardiovascular pharmacology (pressure and ECG transducers; digital system for recording and analysing cardiovascular parameters; bloodless blood pressure meter).

Ocular Pharmacology (tonometer).
