Powder&pasty food sensors

Powdered or pasty food can be offered with specially designed containers, replacing the standard food container for pellets hung at the sensor.
The combination with a spillage avoidance device is possible.

Key features

  • the universal precision sensors can be flexibly used as feeding stations
  • containers are translucent for quick evaluation of content level, and adjustable in height to grant easy access for every animal
  • usable with all standard home cages – no modification required

Assay types

  • choice preference: multiple feeding or drinking sensors
  • yoked/paired feeding via access control
  • time-control or amount-control via access control system (also water / deprivation restrictions prior to learning&memory tasks with operant wall module)
  • drug self-administration by food or drink
  • feeding/drinking rythm, meal analysis
  • alternate feed presentation through specific containers for powdered or pasty food

Home cage measurement

  • based on standard cage sizes
  • short animal habituation
  • easy maintance and cleaning
  • non-invasie long-term monitoring without experimenter interference
  • highest flexibility: module combinable with body weight monitoring, standard drinking&feeding monitoring sensors, activity measurement, operant conditioning or indirect calorimetry
