The AnimalGate is a fundamental extension to IntelliCage that permits selective passage of mice to a variety of external arenas or experimental set-ups. The AnimalGate uses the same transponder technology as IntelliCage and is controlled by the upgraded IntelliCage Plus software. It represents the vital controlled connecting structure of a future multifunctional modular test system. One or several AnimalGates can be added to each IntelliCage allowing selective access to different arenas such as ActivityBox, FeederBox or others. Thus, any basic IntelliCage system can be expanded gradually to the maximal setup.

Key features

  • expands IntelliCages to a multi-area system with selective access for individual mice
  • senses the direction of passage and distributes animals according to your directives
  • measures precisely body weight of mice passing (optional integrated high-precision balance)
  • permits individual access to specific food or liquid sources, and any other connected area
  • expands the capacity of IntelliCage for measuring consumptive behavior
  • creates the opportunity to apply differential treatments without handling specific animals

Behavioral features

  • control of feeding and drinking
  • monitoring body weight, stress effects, health status
  • differentiation of treatments for specific animal groups
  • precise control of movement patterns and treatment applications
