Don’t Miss A Sip / Nip – Prime Sensitivity & Precision
- Sensitive measurement of food and liquid consumption
- Detailed and validated meal & circadian analysis
- Add an Access Control Unit for food or liquid restriction/deprivation, controlled administration of drugs or paired and yoked feeding/ drinking experiments
The PhenoMaster drinking & feeding module is based on exceptionally sensitive and precise weighing sensors that measure the amount of food and liquid consumed over time. Even micro-bouts of consumption are captured. Our validated spill- and leak-protect technology – exclusive to TSE- minimizes variance due to food spillage or water leakage to a minimum.
Feeding and drinking can be automatically monitored in any home cage for hours and days without disturbances by the experimenter or neglect of animal welfare. In the most basic dual sensor configuration, the home cage is equipped with one feeding and one drinking sensor. For discrimination experiments (preference or aversion studies), a variable number of sensors can be installed per cage, e.g. for 2 diets, water and body weight.
Since various combinations are possible, please contact our specialists to discuss your specific needs.
