Animal Behavior

Running Wheels

When temperature and heart rate are not necessary to monitor animal or implantation is not feasible, long behavior can be monitored with the following options.

Monitor animal behavior and activity 24-hours-a-day while obtaining information on circadian rhythms and activity. For a complete physiological and behavioral picture, incorporate heart rate, core body temperature, or gross motor activity monitoring with our E-Mitters. Our new running wheels are designed specifically to meet your need to use standard cages and racks and collect wheel turn data 24/7. The wheels are available in 11.5 cm and 16.5 cm diameter. Wheel turns are readily monitored using the magnetic reed switch.

INFRARED CAGE TOP MOTION SENSOR FOR ACTIVITY MONITORING

image

Our infrared cage top motion sensor records movements detected in a given epoch and is a very low cost activity monitoring solution. When the subject moves while in view of the motion sensor, activity is recorded. The number of closures per sampling interval is accumulated by the DP-24 Data Port and communicated to the PC when the sample epoch is completed
