Improving Animal Modeling with 24/7 Home Cage Monitoring in Bioexclusion & Biocontainment Mouse Housing Systems

Improving Animal Modeling with 24/7 Home Cage Monitoring in Bioexclusion & Biocontainment Mouse Housing Systems

ON DEMAND

Experts discuss current biosafety requirements and what home cage monitoring can teach us in bioexclusion and biocontainment studies.

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.

Cardiac PV Loop Data Analysis: Tips & Tricks

Cardiac PV Loop Data Analysis: Tips & Tricks

ON DEMAND

Dr. DeWayne Townsend and Dr. Adam Goodwill discuss the fundamentals of pressure-volume loop analysis as a means to study cardiac function.

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.

Measuring Visual Acuity and Contrast Sensitivity by Optomotor Reflex in Rodents

Measuring Visual Acuity and Contrast Sensitivity by Optomotor Reflex in Rodents

ON DEMAND

Experts discuss case studies and experimental data from various applications using a newly developed automated system to measure vision based on the optomotor reflex.

ASO-Mediated DNM2 Knockdown for Centronuclear Myopathies

ASO-Mediated DNM2 Knockdown for Centronuclear Myopathies

VIRTUAL POSTER

Suzie Buono discusses the work she and her team have done to provide an example of treating a dominant disease by targeting both alleles, suggesting that this strategy may be applied to other dominant diseases.
