Behavioral Studies Equipments

Elevate your research with advanced behavioral instruments

Researchers can save time and resources by ordering the machined, pre-assembled and tested Low Friction Rodent Driven Belt Treadmill from HHMI’s Janelia Research Campus. LabeoTech is pleased to possess a license for Janelia’s design and is also offering a range of optional accessories designed to complement the device. Indeed, the treadmill can be equipped with a head fixation system and/or it can be motorized to facilitate training. Also, a software (Windows/Mac compatible) is provided to display the speed and distance of the treadmill and save them in .csv format. The treadmill is also fully compatible with PsychoPy.

This ergonomic head restrainer will keep the animal comfortable and offers exceptional stability, for 2 photon and OCT imaging, among others. Simple thumbscrews allow you to release or secure the animal within seconds with our custom titanium bars available here. In addition, the device allows you to adjust the body height in order to release pressure on the spine and neck depending on the animal’s age and size. The device comes with a 40 mm clear acrylic tube. The head restrainer is pre-mounted on a 150 x 150 mm metric breadboard (M6 taps) and can be solidly fixed to any existing system. Behavioral or sensorial equipment can be mounted on the same breadboard to save space and time for experimental setup.

The Air Puff Whisker Stimulator delivers controlled air puffs to mices’ whiskers, ensuring consistent and reliable results. It features an input trigger control for timing. Researchers can easily customize the intensity of the stimulation to match their experimental requirements, thanks to the adjustable settings.

The device is also compatible with other rodents, such as rats.

The pump comes with a software for digital control, a PsychoPy plugin, and a serial commands list. This device is very easy to integrate to your experimental setup. Researchers can program and automate stimulation protocols effortlessly, streamlining their research process.

The Water Dispenser delivers water to mice or rats on demand. It features an input trigger control for timing and volume adjustment. A lickometer allows for the measurement of the number of licks done by the animal and the estimation of the water intake.

The pump comes with a software for digital control, a PsychoPy plugin, and a serial commands list. This device is very easy to integrate to your experimental setup. Researchers can program and automate water delivery protocols effortlessly, streamlining their research process.

The Behavioral Task Device is a fully integrated visual stimulation and reward system. It is based on the widely used PsychoPy package and will display visual patterns to a small head fixed animal. The protocol can be programmed using the intuitive PsychoPy user interface.

The behavioral lever is intended for fine motor tasks. It cam measure the lever position and apply a programmable force that will move the lever out of the reward zone. It can be used with our Air Puff Whisker Stimulator and our Water Dispenser for reward or punition, or it can be controlled through a 5V TTL interface or a serial interface. A PsychoPy plugin is also available. The system is compatible with our treadmill, our mouse head fixation system, and our automatic home cage system.

Voluntary head-fix system that produce hundreds of hours of  brain imaging data per month without user interaction. This automated device reduce handling bias for neuroscience imaging.

LabeoTech’s rotarod system offers unparalleled flexibility, accommodating a diverse range of designs, from asymmetric missing step wheels to a simple plain rod

Compact benchtop treadmill for laboratory mice. It features a manual knob and can be controlled by windows PC for programming running sequences.
