The Use of Home Cage Monitoring to Determine Whether Individual Male Mouse Activity Patterns Correlate with Nest Complexity

The Use of Home Cage Monitoring to Determine Whether Individual Male Mouse Activity Patterns Correlate with Nest Complexity

VIRTUAL POSTER

It is well established that nesting materials are an important inclusion for mouse cages. We wanted to determine whether there was a significant difference in mice activity when offered three different material choices and whether there was any correlation between activity in the cage and nest complexity.

A New Frontier of Precision Medicine: Using PET for Image-Guided Neurointerventions

A New Frontier of Precision Medicine: Using PET for Image-Guided Neurointerventions

ON DEMAND

Experts discuss how PET/CT imaging can be used to enable image-guided neurointerventions and to study targeted delivery and clearance of therapeutic agents.

Locomotor Activity: refinement, reduction and replicability ‘round the clock in animal studies

Locomotor Activity: refinement, reduction and replicability ‘round the clock in animal studies

VIRTUAL POSTER

A growing body of evidence suggests that Home Cage Monitoring studies are becoming key tools for in vivo animal research for three main reasons: reduction in animal distress thereby increasing welfare, minimization of biases (wanted and unwanted), and increased reproducibility of data.

Odor delivery with the 220A Olfactometer from Aurora Scientific

Odor delivery with the 220A Olfactometer from Aurora Scientific

TECH CAST

Chris Rand discusses the updated 200A Olfactometer from Aurora Scientific. He walks through setting up the system before sharing best practices, all while demonstrating the integral functions of the system.

Turn Away from Traditional Tethering and Towards a Better Method for Data Collection

Turn Away from Traditional Tethering and Towards a Better Method for Data Collection

ON DEMAND

Experts discuss the use of a novel movement responsive rodent caging system as a means to minimize animal stress and enable unique discovery in many research applications, namely neuroscience, animal behaviour, drug discovery and cardiometabolic disease.
