Multi Conditioning System

One System - Nine Paradigms

 

  • Two configurations: large (rat & mouse), small (mice only)
  • Customizable: select arena/paradigms/accessories according to your current experimental demands
  • Nine pre-programmed paradigms, flexible experimental design in one chamber
  • Increases intra- and inter- lab reproducibility (enclosed experimental environment)
  • Experimental monitoring- live
  • Preprogrammed analysis plus export file (for further statistical evaluation)
  • User friendly software design

 

The Multi Conditioning system is designed for multi-purpose behavioral testing, e.g. the evaluation of learning, memory, emotion and stress-related behaviors in mice and rats. One system supports nine paradigms (so far), hence it saves valuable lab space, allows high throughput and efficient research.

In accordance with the experimental requirements, each measuring unit can be equipped with a large variety of arenas, equipment and software modules. The movements of experimental animals are detected in three dimensions by high resolution IR light beams.

 

Unique Flexibility

Available pre-programmed paradigms:

1. Fear conditioning

2. Panic response (rat only)

3. Active avoidance

4. Passive avoidance

5. Learned helplessness

6. Conditioned place preference

7. Latent inhibition

8. Light-dark test

9. Open field test (locomotor activity).
