Designed for scientific experimentation, high-throughput systems are
often used in drug discovery. Combining robotics, data processing, control
software, liquid handling devices, and Futek’s LSB200 miniature load cells, the
high-throughput system is engineered to analyse behavioural phenotyping
(including movement, feeding, and drinking).
Home cage environment systems for behavioural phenotyping demand accurate
and reliable measurement instruments. Precise spatial measurement of home cage
behaviour is necessary to evaluate different products including large scale
pharmaceutical designs and genetic lesion programs.
Installed in all four corners of the home cage, Futek’s LSB200 miniature
load cells will measure the behavioural patterns of the subject during the
testing process. As the test subject moves throughout the cage, the load cells
will stream the load forces produced to individual USB modules, with SENSIT
Test and Measurement Software logging these results on four different channels.
Researchers can now reliably compare the results of each load cell and
effectively gauge the behavioural patterns of the subject in Test Subject
Behavioural Phenotyping applications.
