MOUSE ARENA (CAGE) FOR TRU SCAN
MOUSE ARENA (CAGE) FOR TRU SCAN
Contact our Behavioral Research Specialists for more information

Our TruScan Photo Beam Activity System utilizes interchangeable Sensor Rings to ensure precision tracking of your subject in up to three planes. Point-and-click user-oriented software processes data for each session and saves all raw data for new analysis protocols in the future. The options available and the TruScan software for control and data analysis meet today's needs for the study of activity like no other system on the market.

Monitor activity simultaneously in X-Y, nose poke and rearing modes
Arenas available for rats or mice
TruScan software produces analyses of time spent in different parts of the arena, path information, distance travelled etc.
Raw data recorded for future analysis
Allows presentation of shock and other stimuli
In the Tru Scan system there are two arena sizes, one for small mouse-sized animals and one for larger rat-sized animals. Other systems run rats and mice in the same arena; however, we provide arenas of the appropriate size and beam spacing for each. You don't have to "make-do" with running mice in rat environments.

Our arenas feature a slide-out floor/drop pan so you don't have to take the whole cage out of the station case to wash it. Just pull the floor out and dump it so that the next animal is not distracted or contaminated by the droppings of the previous animal. Extra drop pans are inexpensive. You can replace them for each run with freshly washed ones.
REPLACEMENT DROP PAN FOR MOUSE ARENA
REPLACEMENT DROP PAN FOR MOUSE ARENA
Contact our Behavioral Research Specialists for more information

One E63-10-DP (or E63-20-DP) Drop Pan is included with each E63-10 (or E63-20) Arena (cage). Extra Drop Pans are available. With extra drop pans, you can replace the drop pans between subjects and be ready to run as soon as the next subject is placed in the Mouse Arena.
SENSOR RING FOR MOUSE ARENA
SENSOR RING FOR MOUSE ARENA
Contact our Behavioral Research Specialists for more information

Tru Scan's Photo Beam sensor rings are separate from the station's processor rather than being built together in a large case in which a clumsy single-piece test arena rests. There is only one type of sensor ring (sized for each arena). It senses in two dimensions (X&Y) and you use the same ring for floor plane, rearing or nose poke. You can do all 3 measures (with 3 rings) at the same time! The system logs X-Y coordinates instead of just a "yes or no" when monitoring nose poke or rearing. The rings are flat so that you can do nose poke and floor plane recording together.
SHOCK FLOOR FOR MOUSE ARENA

The shock floor may be connected to any of our shockers  which in turn may be controlled by one of the stimulus outputs of the Tru Scan Linc.
NOSE POKE FLOOR FOR MOUSE ARENA
NOSE POKE FLOOR FOR MOUSE ARENA
Contact our Behavioral Research Specialists for more information

The optional nose poke floors have a 16 holes (4 X 4 array ) with an underlying food tray. Because Tru Scan software records coordinates from sensor rings, it is possible to analyze the sequence in which the holes are accessed as well as when each hole is accessed.  The nose poke floors are great for memory protocols.
LIGHT/DARK BOX FOR MOUSE ARENA
LIGHT/DARK BOX FOR MOUSE ARENA
Contact our Behavioral Research Specialists for more information

The light/dark or retreat box covering 1/2 of the cage has a door to let the animal pass. Data acquisition protocols allow selection of any half of the cage as the "data area" so that entries, movements and time spent in the box may be recorded. This "solid black" box has no holes for the Photo Beams so it doesn't let in ambient light, but it is transparent to the Photo Beams.
LID FOR MOUSE ARENA - RECOMMENDED WHEN USING SHOCK
LID FOR MOUSE ARENA - RECOMMENDED WHEN USING SHOCK
Contact our Behavioral Research Specialists for more information

The Lid for the E63-19 Mouse Arena (cage) is recommended when using shock stimulus with the Tru Scan system and is required when using a visual cue to mount the the E63-03 Hi-Brite Cue above the Mouse Arena.
