The Promethion Behavioral Phenotyping System analyzes rat behaviors in real time with second-by-second data acquisition from all sensors. The system is configurable with devices for ingestive behavior studies and activity including cage movement and wheel running. Programmable food and water access control units provide the capability for paired or yoked, time and duration, food or drink choice, or behavior-based reward studies.
Analysis of the high-resolution data can discern subtle behaviors relevant to your investigations that would otherwise be missed by less precise systems.
The entire system is compact and self-contained to save valuable lab space, allowing up to 8 cages in an environmental cabinet or rack. Your workflow is efficient with swappable components and magnetic mounts for quick exchange of hoppers and measurement devices.
The new Promethion Live software enables you to control all aspects of your study. The simplified interface maximizes experiment success with intuitive system and experiment setup. Status indicators for vital components verify system performance. Constant monitoring of all parameters means you will always know the well-being of each animal. Routine study configurations can be easily saved and reused.
With Promethion Live, you can explore comparative trends during an experiment looking at every facet measured, such as activity, food consumption and water consumption (see chart below). The software even provides real-time mean +/- SD or median of grouped data for statistical comparison and experiment evaluation in real time. You are empowered with the experiment and animal information needed to make key decisions at any time, from any place.
