The activity wheel and software is ideal for measuring the free and spontaneous activity of mice or rat in their home cage.
Intellibio developed a cage equipped with an activity wheel and an electronic unit for recording the measured parameters in Excel (recording of spontaneous motor activity over long periods even over an entire lifetime ).The cage is designed to facilitate the well-being of animals and meet the research needs.
The device adapts to a standard cage for rat and mouse. Thus, the rodent remains in its living area and has free access to the wheel. The equipment measures activity parameters (activity type, time, speed, sense of rotation etc.) in the long-term, even over the entire lifespan of the animal. This cage is designed to facilitate animal welfare.These sets of cages allow the measurement of activity variations and their timing over extended periods, making the system particularly useful for:
The study of rhythms of activity and their deregulation
Pharmacology (measurements before and after treatment), anxiety and depression
Temporal screening in all developmental models (environments pre- and post-natal, KO inducible, injuries ...)
Anxiety and depression
