The AutoSomTM system is an automated sleep-deprivation system specially designed to conduct sleep-related research in rodents. The system enables non-invasive, fully automated, and highly-regulated monitoring of rodent’s sleep/wake activity.
The device consists of a floor-sensor board that detects the vibrations when the mouse moves in its home-cage. A motor is fixed under the floor-sensor board that turns the rotating bar to keep the animal awake.
The system operates four units interfacing one computer via USB cable. The screenshots of the system using a vibration signal that is used to assess active or inactive (‘sleep’), and an infrared array is utilized for the detection of location and locomotion of the animal.
Optogenetic safety glasses specially made to prevent or reduce laser damage to human eyes. The optogenetics laser goggles come in two variants that work against green and yellow light, as well as a blue and green light.
ConductScience offers Optogenetic Laser Goggles.
The system aims to provide one complete solution to both initial and lasting anesthesia of small rodents for the majority of procedures such as development of animal disease models(cerebral ischemia,
