As the very first German institution we are very proud to present our new flagship in behavioral research: The ToxMate Lab Multi-Species Online Monitoring System.
The ToxMate Lab is a brand new product developed by ViewPoint able to monitor multi-species' behavior in a specific environment. This apparatus has been designed to track and record behavioural outputs of small living organisms, in high throughput. As well as to analyze and measure the toxic properties and impact of a fluid on the behavior of small animals. Three powerful and precise cameras record continuously the activity of the animals in order to observe the tiniest and the most discreet behavior. The ToxMate Lab is versatile, giving researchers the possibility to analyze up to three different species per experiment simultaneously and independently in each panel. The fluid that flows in the ToxMate can be anything, whether aqueous or gaseous. The fluid stream is homogeneous in the entire apparatus, allowing all the animals to be under the same experimental conditions.
Feel free to find more information about this amazing system on the Viewpoint website.
We will utilized ToxMat to further carry behavioral reseach in ecotoxicological fields. Using the ToxMat Lab we are ablte to provide exelent research opportunities for our students.
