Multi Conditioning System

Multi-Purpose Platform for Ten Behavioral Paradigms

Multi Conditioning system

First Modular Behavioral Test Platform

The Multiconditoning System (MCS) empowers researchers by enabling comprehensive behavioral testing (learning, memory, emotion, anxiety) within a single, automated platform. MCS consolidates workflows, eliminating the need for multiple setups and saving valuable bench space. Generate reproducible results with confidence.

MCS offers unmatched versatility for diverse research needs. Removable floors and interchangeable test arenas adapt to a wide range of behavioral assays. Additionally, the powerful software, with 3 comprehensive packages allows running and analysis of over 10 behavioral tests.

Experience the benefits of MCS research: reduced costs, minimized space requirements, enhanced data accuracy, and superior reproducibility.

“The first advantage we observed in using the MCS platform is the capacity to perform behavioral testing in an insulated and ventilated “closed” container, that offers full control over external conditions. The second advantage in using the MCS is the immense variety of control parameters, so that we can tailor each protocol in detail, providing both accuracy and experimental precision for protocol validation. ”

“Finally, forward translation in neuropsychopharmacology: With our mouse model of stress-induced excessive aversion processing – for which the MCS is essential – we are able to identify novel mechanisms-of-action that are efficacious in patients with major neuropsychiatric disorders.”
