TAIL SUSPENSION TEST
High throughput testing is achieved by testing up to 16 animals simultaneously and receiving the results instantly. All acquired data are calculated and presented in real time already during the experiment. The possibility to save different setup configurations makes it even easier to deal with your test sessions.
Comparing the active versus the inactive time shares is only a small extract of posibble results from the tail suspension test. Our system is capable to distinguish between the three behaviors inactive, swinging and climbing. It considers also the temporal course of each shown behavior. In addition, break off criteria can be defined to stop data acquisition for each animal individually if necessary.
Real time individual and group performance calculation
During the experiment the acquired data are calculated and displayed graphically in real time. Thus you are able to really see what is going on.
Extensive statistical functions
The software offers a multitude of statistical tests to analyze the acquired data. You don’t need to go through the data with other programs. Just select the algebraic function or test you want to be calculated and see the results instantly. One behavioral test – one software.
Already during the experiment the acquired data are analyzed and presented in convincing diagrams. All diagrams can be exported in different file formats (bmp, wmf and emf).
Further processing of data and diagrams
The collected data can be exported for other applications. Further individual data manipulations can be conducted. All diagrams that have been generated during the experiment or the data analysis are saved in the vector graphic format (wmf) thereby making them easy to integrate and work with in other programs.
Export filters for the data: *.txt, *.doc, *.csv, *.xls, *.xml
Export filters for the diagrams: *.bmp, *.wmf, *.emf
The software offers standard interfaces to communicate with other applications like databases. Thereby it is possible to transfer data to existing animal databases, for example. You can import database records into the TST software, perform experiments and export the data back to your animal database. That is true high throughput!
The software supports the FireWire/iLink port for digital video cameras. You can use any DV-Camera with a FireWire port. This simplifies the installation because no frame-grabber card or driver problems occur. It´s just plug and measure.
Digital video encoding included
You do not want to fill another locker with your experiment tapes? With the TST software you can directly encode your experiment to a digital video file in real time. Easy to do, easy to store and easy to handle. Following source signals can be used with the TST software: FireWire camera (live or tape), USB camera, analog camera, VCR, digital video file.
