Sensors can be re-arranged to allow for wider flexibility. A feature unique to Opto M3 system is the ability to re-arrange the sensor sets to cover more more cages with fewer axes of measurement, or fewer cages with measurement in more axes per cage.
Flexibility Example 1: A system purchased for Open Field measurement in 2 cages in X, Y and Z (rearing) axes...
can then be reconfigured to measure general locomotor activity and rearing in 3 home cages...
or measure general locomotor activity only in 6 home cages.
Flexibility Example 2: The distance between sensors is adjustable for X and XZ axis setups.
Flexibility Example 3: We can also make custom fixed frames around any cage of your choosing. Shown below are fixed frames that we have made for a 17.5" x 17.5" (44.5 cm x 44.5 cm) Open Field cage, a typical mouse shoebox cage, and another we made for a miniturized Open Field Cage for small mice.
