Based on the results of recent EU research projects, and on our extensive experience with in-vivo phenotyping and test equipment, TSE Systems has developed the PhenoWorld concept in close collaboration with several leading research institutions.
PhenoWorld is a unique combinatorial research approach, integrating ideas and solutions implemented in our PhenoMaster behavioral and metabolic home cage monitoring platform with those of the IntelliCage system by NewBehavior, connected by automatic AnimalGates, and combining these with paradigms from the Multi Conditioning approach. This results in a variety of completely novel systems and possible experimental set-ups.

The different test environments thus created allow both wide-scope screening of multiple, transponder-identified animals, and the in-depth analysis of individual test subjects. Applications for this approach are almost unlimited. TSE Systems is currently implementing set-ups such as:
- Social Interaction
- More in preparation
By applying the PhenoWorld concept, our customers benefit in several ways:
- Elevating classical phenotyping paradigms to new levels of automation, comprehensiveness and throughput, allowing completely novel experimental designs
- Equipping your laboratory with unique, highly personalized set-ups
- Accelerated data generation by simultaneous analysis of test and control group and reduced data variability
- Long-term monitoring in an enriched, low-stress environment for test animals within their normal social environment
