Improve analysis, understanding, welfare and data reproducibility of your animal models via automated 24/7 home cage monitoring
Automated recording of lab animals’ home-cage behaviour is becoming increasingly popular in the scientific community. It enables non-intrusive data collection that could lead to a better understanding of animal models. Home-cage monitoring can simultaneously improve animal welfare and husbandry thanks to reduced animal handling, while providing a trove of unbiased insights regarding animal life that would be otherwise unobtainable, keeping animals in their home environment.
This webinar shows the value of home-cage monitoring for better research reporting and reproducibility while potentially reducing stress in lab mice, ultimately accelerating research results. Attendees will learn about recording animal data in their home cage 24/7, assessing environmental conditions and the keys to ensure more rigorous reporting. Major themes to be discussed include:
· How observations collected via home-cage monitoring can be translated into an animal’s locomotor activity in a scalable, automated and real-time manner with minimal set up.
· How information can impact animal welfare and experimental design as well as the interplay with conventional behavioural tests outside the home cage, leading to refined experimental approaches. Examples will be drawn from studies in chronobiology, surgical recovery, oncology and neuro degenerative diseases.
· How to gain insights from 24/7 monitoring, impacting reproducibility, repeatability and refinement of experimental design, while improving animal welfare.
· Examples of the practical application of digital information within a research group or across a global organization, and its effects on reproducibility, husbandry and data consistency.
· Tips to improve reproducibility of rodent research.
