A webinar series focused on late-breaking research and discovery relating to the physiological mechanisms of obesity-related disease.
Experts discuss current biosafety requirements and what home cage monitoring can teach us in bioexclusion and biocontainment studies.
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.
Dr. DeWayne Townsend and Dr. Adam Goodwill discuss the fundamentals of pressure-volume loop analysis as a means to study cardiac function.
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.
Experts discuss case studies and experimental data from various applications using a newly developed automated system to measure vision based on the optomotor reflex.
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.
Matt Borkowski of Aurora Scientific discusses the latest software update for their Dynamic Muscle Control and Analysis Software, DMC LabBook.
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.
