Metabolic & Behavioral Monitoring System
The food and water body weight monitoring system is a functional module of the animal energy metabolism monitoring system, which is mainly used to monitor the changes of animal food intake, water intake and body weight for a long time. The animal experimental cabin is a conventional rat cage, which is designed with a homecage to meet the requirements of long-term life of animals, and can realize 24-hour monitoring.
The Animal Energy Metabolism Monitoring System provides a highly flexible modular solution for long-term monitoring of metabolism and related behaviors in small laboratory animals. The system can simultaneously control various functional parameters in the cage in one software, such as: respiratory entropy metabolism monitoring, food intake monitoring, drinking water monitoring, weight monitoring, XYZ autonomous activity monitoring, running wheel activity monitoring, respiration monitoring, intake Access control, physiological telemetry monitoring modules, etc., can also be professionally customized according to user needs. A standardized breeding environment can objectively monitor the metabolism and behavior of animals in their natural living conditions.
Animal Energy Metabolism Monitoring System
Multi-channel monitoring, with scalability. The types of monitoring function modules can be expanded according to user needs.
Oxygen monitoring adopts zirconia monitoring probe, carbon dioxide monitoring adopts infrared spectrum probe, which has good stability and high precision.
High-precision electronic sensors are used for monitoring of drinking water, food intake and weight, with an accuracy of 0.1g.
It has the function of real-time monitoring and data collection of respiratory entropy, and each cage is equipped with a separate set of O2 and CO2 probes. It is used to monitor the respiratory entropy of experimental animals in real time, and the monitoring rate is 1 second/time.
Spontaneous activity monitoring adopts XYZ three-dimensional optical frame to monitor the horizontal activity, standing times, position preference information of rats and mice, circadian rhythm monitoring, sleep analysis, etc. in real time. And the user can freely select the monitoring area range.
The real-time measurement mode can achieve real-time monitoring in the energy metabolism module, the diet and drinking water weight module, and the XYZ three-dimensional activity module. All the cages record all the data at the same time during the whole experiment, which provides the same time point for the later data statistics. To achieve the unity of data in time.
The data analysis software has the functions of data processing, data display, experimental design and control, etc. It can display the time allocation for analyzing the behavioral spectrum of experimental animals, animal activity position and activity intensity, animal activity, body temperature, heart rhythm, and respiratory metabolism analysis.
