MODEL MK-725

Low-Cost Multi-Channel Running Wheel System for Mice

MK-725/04 ( 4ch System )

MK-725 Low-Cost Multi-Channel Running Wheel System is designed to measure spontaneous activity levels of mice accurately and is suitable for a quantitative measurement over a long period of time. The plastic wheel is equipped with a sensor which detects the revolving of the wheel.  The wheel is located in a home cage and mice can freely access to the wheel. A fully automatic measurement can be done using a CompACT AMS Ver.3 Data Collection Software. The system can be configured from 4ch ( minimum ) up to 64ch ( maximum ).

CompACT AMS Ver. 3 DATA COLLECTION SOFTWARE

Pulse data sent out from running wheels will be collected and stored into Data Interface and sent to a personal computer for data analysis. Since all the measurements can be controlled by the Data Interface, a personal computer can be used even for another application once the measurement gets started.
