EthoVision XT is the state-of-the-art video-tracking system that automatically records animal activity and movement, including motility and explorative behaviour.
EthoVision works on the basis of detecting a contrast in colour between your organism - be it rodent, fish, insect - and the background, or arena.
Track the centre of gravity of a single organism in a single arena at its most basic; or track multiple body points, organisms or arenas should your research require it.
EthoVision can be used to control external hardware such as maze doors etc, and physiological data can be imported and co-analysed alongside behavioural tracking data.
Behaviour recognition modules for rodents can idenitify more complex behaviours including rearing, grooming, twitching, digging.
Experimental parameters are fully exportable in either Excel or text format for further analysis.
Advanced trial control means tracking can be controlled by time or event, for example for a certain period of time, or by entering or exiting a zone.
Data can be visualised along with external data streams, as well as video of the experiment.
|Automation of starting, stopping and running of trials||Saves time and reduces human error|
|Unique Dynamic Subtraction detection method ensures that your animals will still be reliably tracked, even when the background changes i.e. movement of bedding/sawdust with cages, urination, changes light stimuli etc||Data accuracy maintained in variable conditions|
|Track animals in any type of arena, enclosure or maze||The same system can be used for a variety of behavioural tests|
|Track live or from videos||Control where and when you collect you data|
|Can be installed on multiple PCs||Data can be analysed in laboratory, office or at home|
|Track animals in up to 100 arenas simultaneously||Increase throughput - get your trials finished quicker|
|Add-on modules with extra functionality. e.g nose & tail-base tracking, physiological data import and GLP compliance||Buy the system you need and build on it as your work needs expand|
|Powerful and flexible data selection and analysis||Get the data you need in the format you need it quickly and easily|
|First and only video tracking system with GLP compliance (meets 21 CRF Part 11)||Safeguard your experiments; settings and changes during acquisition are logged and experimental results are retrievable|
