When temperature and heart rate are not necessary to monitor animal or implantation is not feasible, long behavior can be monitored with the following options.

RUNNING WHEELS

Monitor animal behavior and activity 24-hours-a-day while obtaining information on circadian rhythms and activity.  For a complete physiological and behavioral picture,  incorporate heart rate, core body temperature, or gross  motor activity monitoring with our E-Mitters.  Our new running wheels are designed specifically to  meet your need to use standard cages and racks and  collect wheel turn data 24/7. The wheels are available  in  11.5 cm and  16.5 cm diameter.  Wheel turns  are readily monitored using the magnetic reed switch.

Infrared  Cage Top Motion  Sensor for  Activity Monitoring

Our infrared cage top motion sensor records  movements detected in a given epoch and is  a very low cost activity monitoring solution.   When the subject moves while in view of the motion sensor, activity is recorded.  The number of closures per sampling interval is accumulated  by the DP-24 Data Port and communicated to the  PC when the sample epoch is completed.
