Easy to use, fully featured, excellent results with Ugo Basile mazes

  • Easy to learn, set up and use.
  • Comprehensive with features like moveable zones, three-point tracking, and freezing detection.
  • Get a quick insight into the power and simplicity of ANY-maze. This brief video introduces some of the key elements of ANY-maze, highlighting its power, flexibility and ease of use.


  • Tracking in ANY-maze requires no special set-up or parameters - you put the animal in the apparatus and it tracks. And it doesn’t just track the center of the animal - the system tracks the whole body and, in rodents, it tracks the head and tail too.
  • Doesn’t predefine anything about the apparatus in which it will be tracking. You draw the apparatus yourself and divide it into any number of areas that interest you. You can then create zones from these areas and the system will report a plethora of results for each one. You can also define sequences of movements between the areas and the program will detect when they occur. What's more, you can edit everything at any time, even after tests have been performed.
  • Tracks live images from a camera, or in pre-recorded video files.
  • Easy connection to Ugo Basile mazes that are high contrast, non-reflective/anti-glare to optimize video tracking success.
  • Can assess hundreds of results for a test and present them in a range of ways.
  • Manages complete experiments. In ANY-maze, an experiment typically consists of some treatment groups, with each group containing a number of animals. The animals can be tested just once or can receive multiple trials, where the trials can be broken into different stages. 
  • Understands the structure of your experiment, so it’s able to analyze results between different groups. For example, it’s very easy to analyze the results between treatment groups. As you’d expect, this shows group Ns, means and deviations, but ANY-maze goes further - you can use over 30 built in stats tests to perform detailed analysis of the results directly within the system.
  • Flexible and generous software licensing options.

Application of videotracking software

Video tracking is the process of locating a moving object (or multiple objects) over time using a camera. It has a variety of uses and it has been found of great advantage to match the need for automating behavioral observations. Video tracking systems enable researchers to study behavior in a more reliable and consistent way and over longer time periods than if they were using direct observation or manual recording.
