OF3C - Automated 3D Open Field System

Reference: OF-3CM

A unique setup for the automation of the Open Field test for rats and mice : 3D-camera based technology is now capable of direct height measurement allowing detection of 100% of rearing events and exploratory posture. Dedicated software can be set up in only 3 clicks to automatically assess and report global parameters, zone transitions and rearings. Easily expanded for Novel Object Recognition.

Bioseb OF3C - Open field sniffing detection

Although the Open field test is the most widely used test to evaluate basal exploratory behavior, none of the currently available systems can record horizontal and vertical activity without adding a third component such as beam break frames. BIOSEB OF3C utilizes 3D video technology to achieve 100% rearing detection by direct height measurements.

The OF-3C tracks a single subject (rat or mouse) with aerial video within the arena and records each rearing event based on the predefined height with an accuracy of 1 mm over 1 mm2. Our rearing detection algorithm perfectly matches manual scoring. Zone transitions remain realistic thanks to surface thresholds and specific morphologic detection. Drawing a zone is extremely easy using our predefined zone tools: name, color, form, layer priority for complex zone shapes, etc.

The straightforward software computes and stores data in real time. While it can be used with any type of arena for 2D detection, all components needed for 3D detection are provided with your purchase.
