Numeriscope : Digital Video Recorder. Its purpose is to record digitally the images from one or several cameras provided by ViewPoint.

Numeriscope can be quickly set-up to record your experiments.

No need to adjust various parameters as we defined the best choice for such recording and factory set them for quicker use.

  • High-quality images : generate low weight images without losing image quality

  • An active memory of your experiment: make it possible to view images of an experiment to score special behavior

  • Fully adapted for laboratory use

  • Instant access to video images

VideoTrack - Elevated Plus Maze template will provide you specific endpoints for this experiment.

Results generated in this experiment are obtained thanks to the EPM option, that completes normal area definition with "open" and "close" property. Usual EPM results can be deducted :

- Open arm to open arm

- Open arm to closed arm

- Closed arm to closed arm

- Closed arm to open arm

- Total count of arms change

- Head dipping count can also be added to the protocol

VideoTrack FST : Activity Quantization

Suitable for Forced Swim Test and Tail Suspension Test.

Instead of tracking the animal position, this module analyses the global activity of the animal and classify it, into 3 types of movement :

- Inactivity

- Swimming

- Bursting

- It can also detect epochs with intensive and uninterrupted burst

VideoTrack - Y-Maze for spontaneous alternation

VideoTrack for Y-maze special template export nine additional columns. In this test, we are focusing on the animal alternation: the way to explore the 3 arms. This system calculates automatically this alternation. Time spent and distance traveled in each arm can be added to the standard results.

- Results are output as 3 arms sequences and global clockwise or counterclockwise ways

- Errors are also detected and counted (back in the visited arm)

VideoTrack SI : Social Interactions

With this option, VideoTrack can work with two animals in the same arena to analyze their interaction. Social contact is detected by the distance between both animals.

- It calculates the distance between each animal.

- It calculates occurrence number when the inter-animals distance is under the threshold set by the protocol.

VideoTrack - Morris Water Maze test

The Morris Water Maze results template calculates automatically the following parameters into two spreadsheets :

- latency to reach the areas,

- latency to exit each areas,

- distance traveled by the animal in small and large movement (without the floating distance inactivity movement) at the arrival time on the platform and stay for 3 seconds,

- automatically stop the experiment when the animal arrives at the platform or stay 3 seconds on it,

- the time when the animal is floating (sum of the inadur on the period for each animal),

- average velocity,

- average velocity calculated without time and duration of floating,

- time spent distance traveled in each quadrant, and each zone.

VideoTrack - Multiple arenas & camera module

- Multiple arena and animals module to analyze up to 32 animals at the same time,

- Upgrade of the acquisition board to enable 3 more cameras to be connected to the system,

- Activation of 3 more channel in the VideoTrack software to analyze up to 4 cameras at the same time,

- Software : tracking animals, distance traveled, time spent in several zone, entry count in each zone. The whole body or the nose can be used for detecting entry count.

VideoTrack Rotation / cumulative angles on the pathway

Rotations and Path angles add-on for VideoTrack which provides following results :

- Number of clockwise turns,

- Number of counter-clockwise turns,

- Histogram of the angles made by the animal on its pathway : Classify the turns of the animals during the experiment into 8 different classes from -180° to +180°,

- Number of turns of each class is counted during the experiment and exported into the excel results document.

VideoTrack NOR : Novel Object Recognition

This option analyzes the way an animal explore object into its area.

The analysis is made by the nose detection capabilities of the VideoTrack software.

Time of exploration and latency to the object are the most useful results automatically extracted.

LabWatcher :

Ethological piano which enables repeated playback a video and manually analyzes by scoring what is happening in the picture and creates an ethogram.

The LabWatcher can also work online, which means that if an operator monitors the aviary, he can manually add a relevant information that will appear in the results.

We provide LabWatcher stand alone or Add-ons for VideoTrack or ZebraLab.

Videotrack - Barnes maze :

This protocol is used to analyze the way an animal explores its environment to find a pellet into a target box.

- Area of interest defines the holes position.  Hole exploration is detected on the animal nose and the experiment stops when the whole body of the animal stays in the target hole.

- Number of errors : errors are counted when the animal does not visits the holes in a sequential order.

- Number of perseverations :  perseverations are counted when the animal goes back into an already explored hole.

- Duration of time spent over a threshold distance to the target box.
