Advanced Food & Liquid Restriction By Time, Amount And Duration
Fully automated food and liquid access control by time, duration and amount
Food or liquid restriction/deprivation (e.g. motivating animals prior to learning tasks –
an ideal scenario for use with the operant wall module)
Controlled administration of drugs in food or liquid form
Paired and yoked feeding and drinking experiments can easily be implemented
Driven by small software-controlled servo motors, doors of shielding cylinders can be independently moved and control the access to food and/or liquid. The access can be adjusted according to customized schedules – by time, duration and by the amount consumed. Even paired and yoked feeding/drinking experiments can automatically be conducted. By adding a sensor measuring body weight, animal wellbeing can be assured, with minimal human intervention.
