Biobserve Forced swim test

FST Analysis

This software is designed to automate the forced swim test.

Biobserve Behavioral spectrometer

Behavioral Spectrometer

The Behavior Spectrometer combines Biobserve’s video tracking analysis with behavioral instruments’ vibration pattern based behavior recognition.

Biobserve Products Viewer


Our solution does not only track the center of the animal (as competitive products do) but also the nose and the tail without marking the animal.

Biobserve Phenofinder

Pheno Finder

The PhenoFinder software breaks through the data analysis bottleneck. It is a powerful tool to organize your complete workflow, analyze a huge number of pooled experiments and create convincing reports.

Biobserve Homecage Plus

Homecage Plus

We developed a fully automated, modular, and home cage-based environment to explore the dynamics of the behavioral performance in situations of deliberate choice on drastically extended time-scales.

Biobserve Fear test

Fear Test

This is a video based freezing detection system that can be used with any kind of third party fear conditioning system.

The scientific credibility crisis

Comments : Off
Impugning the credibility of science as a whole In our scientific bulletin from February this year (Reproducibility in Behavioral Neuroscience: Methods Matter), we focused on the findings of a recent survey by Baker an colleagues (Baker et al., 2016), which indicates a... Read More →

Automated screening of baseline behaviors in the home cage

Comments : Off
Importance of long-term screening in the home cage Irrespective of the type of study involving the assessment of behavioral performance, individual performance significantly depends on individual susceptibility to ‘stress’ (i.e., unspecific, external and/or uncontrollable factors... Read More →

Sensor fusion to improve behavioral observation

Comments : Off
Terminology Sensor fusion is the combination of sensory data from independent sources to produce a more accurate interpretation of reality than can be achieved from a single source (Haghighat et al. 2011). One particularly illustrative example is stereoscopic vision of rodents... Read More →

Reproducibility in Behavioral Neuroscience: Methods Matter

Comments : Off
Is there a reproducibility crisis? In a recent survey (Baker, 2016) on the reproducibility in research Nature addressed 1,576 researchers. More than 70% of researchers have tried and failed to reproduce another scientist’s experiments, and more than half have failed to... Read More →

Individual running wheel activity in group housed mice

Comments : Off
The RFID running wheel combines state-of-the-art animal identification with long term activity measurement in the home cage. By combing a home cage fitting running wheel with a technique to identify individual animals reliably, Biobserve offers a cost effective solution to... Read More →

Analyzing behavioral data with the free R* software

Comments : Off
Scientific studies with a sufficiently large study power to provide significant output as well as valid interpretations are based on extensive data sets in most cases. Modern technologies allow for drastically increased spatial and temporal resolution of automated behavioral... Read More →

Advantages of the Modified Barnes Maze

Comments : Off
In order to investigate the behavioural performance of rodents concerning spatial learning and memory, the Morris water maze drastically increased in popularity since Richard G. Morris conceived it in 1981 as an alternative to the radial maze. To reduce levels of stress due to... Read More →
