central nervous system - low-noise eeg telemetry, eeg and sleep scoring software, neurobehavioral observations, and food intake monitoring
rodent eeg telemetry
We are pleased to introduce the rodentPACK: our head-mounted biopotential telemetry system for rodents. The rodentPACK transmits data via radiotelemetry, offering a well-tolerated, humane alternative to tethered eeg. Direct inputs from the device to cortical and deep brain regions provide a high signal-to-noise ratio, facilitating the detection of eeg events. Each rodentPACK provides two eeg inputs, emg, ecg, and 3-axis acceleration. Further, these biopotential inputs can be externalized in a jacketed noninvasive telemetry system for rodents. The rodentPACK is compatible with emka TECHNOLOGIES’ software, or any third-party system.
emka TECHNOLOGIES’ software is ideal for CNS studies. The software allows the scientist to easily differentiate between the four sleep stages, calculate global sleep scores, and produce FFT power spectrums. Optional video for confirmation of sleep score and classification of seizure types is also available.
Let emka TECHNOLOGIES’ integrated video capabilities facilitate behavioral observations without the confounding effects of investigator interaction. Our secured video data is embedded in our data files and can be linked with other physiological signals, allowing the scientist to click on a change in a physiological parameter and observe the associated behavior. The system features adjustable image resolution, and infrared recording for nighttime observations.
food intake monitoring
Food intake is an important endpoint in safety and toxicology studies. Our software can acquire and process data simultaneously from up to 32 rodent cages. The system features investigator-defined measurement periods and automated results tables and trend graphs for each animal.
