ColonyRack - 1

INDIVIDUAL TRACKING ColonyRack ColonyRack Hardware The ColonyRack is an innovative system for the automated tracking of a large population of mice (more than 200). A standard cage rack is equipped with interconnecting tubes that allow the passage of animals through all cages in the rack. All tubes have RFID transponder readers that will record each passage of a tagged animal with exact time and position. The system operates 24/7 for extended periods of time producing accurate data about the movement of all animals contained in the system. Detailed maps and patterns of movement of each animal can be derived from these data sets. Long term studies about the change in general activity, social interaction, and movement patterns become possible. 70 cages in a standard rack mount (>200 animals) Interconnecting tubes between all cages and levels 115 RFID readers with micro-controllers PC for data acquisition Duplicate set of connection tubes and cages for easy maintenance Blocking rods for separating cages ColonyRack Software functions     24/7 data acquisition Graphical user interface reporting detected individual and position Continuous tracking of all transponder activities Open data format for easy import and analysis ColonyRack with 70 cages Cage to cage connections RFID Ring Antenna Level to level connections Complete setup with 70 cages, sensors, and all interconnects Long-term investigation of social groups of animals Animal friendly Observing individuality in large cohort All cages and tubes are easy to remove for cleaning and maintenance.
