Mini roue d'activité

The mini activity wheel with counter is ideal for measuring the free and spontaneous activity of mice in the home cage.

Available since 2005, many laboratories use these systems (battery of 4, 6 , 8, 12 or 24 systems). We propsoe two specifics cages for mice.

Scientific interests

The mini activity wheel with counter in the home cage of the mice allows the measurement of  the  spontaneous activity, counting the number of the wheel; for the distance traveled and speed.

These paradigms are particularly useful for :

  • The study of rhythms of activity and their deregulation
  • Ageing studies
  • Pharmacology (measurements before and after treatment), anxiety and depression
  • Temporal screening in all developmental models (environments pre- and post-natal, KO inducible, injuries ...)
  • Anxiety and depression

The cage is designed to facilitate the well-being of animals and reply to the research needs. The wheel of activity ensures a regular activity.
