Meet the Labyrinth

Modal

  • The Labyrinth core is composed of adjustable inserts
  • 3 Layers: Top (Roof) Layer, Main (Arena) Layer, and Bottom (Mechanical) layer.
  • Inserts allow modifications of the core into an automated version of over 20 modern behavioral apparatuses.
  • This same machinery allows for entirely new types of automated tests, which is the true strength of the Labyrinth.

Designed for Translational Utility

Touch Sensitive

  • The TILT feature allows all acrylic or interchangeable inserts to be touch sensitive, creating touchscreen like capabilities throughout the entire maze.
  • This allows for operant conditioning mazes with simple exchangeable inserts

Active Safety

The Labyrinth continuously scans the interior arena to track animals, providing real-time feedback to help avoid injury to animals even for long term living. The Labyrinth is designed to minimize injury to rodents during protocols.

Novel Features

New technology begets new paradigms. See the entirely new things the Labyrinth can do.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • For the air compressor, is that included, or is it a separate component we need to purchase? It is a separate component and it can be purchased if needed. Contact us for more information.
  • I believe the maze has the capability to be used with lids, electrified floor inserts, etc. Where can I find those accessories/prices? Electrified floor inserts can be added. Contact us for more information.
  • Is it possible to use IR sensors with the apparatus to track rearing, and if so, where can I find the IR sensor information? Video tracking software such as ANY-Maze and Ethovision work with the Labyrinth system.

    Intelligent Testing

    With the Crete Frame, housing units directly attach to the Labyrinth. This allows for entirely automated self sufficient testing. The Crete Device knows when to release the next rodent into the maze, whether that is set as randomized or a specific order of your choosing.
