Aim of study (acc. to author)
cf. additional info
50 Hz fundamental sinus signal plus harmonics to mimic a typical mains power signal
cages (21 × 28 × 15 cm) made of plastic without any metal component
Merritt coil system created a magnetic field with inhomogeneity less than ±5% in a exposure volume of 55 × 50 × 55 cm (w × d × h) for 12 cages; 2 additional larger field coils were placed outside the main field coils with opposite current flow for active stray field cancellation; the cages were mounted in a cage rack, which was supported independently from the field coils to prevent conduction of current‐ induced vibrations; no audible noise was detectable above the low background noise of the animal room
Control mice were maintained in the same racks in the same room, at a distance where the field of the
exposure system was decayed and only normal background levels of 0.25 μT were measured
