Noldus and Maze Engineers collaborate for high quality neuroscientific research solutions

18 February 2016

This week the official documents were signed and Noldus is proud to have a new partner: Maze Engineers. Founded in 2012 and based in the United States, this company is dedicated to transform the convenience and scope of neurobehavioral testing by providing state-of-the-art mazes. Combined with Noldus’ premiere video tracking software EthoVision XT, this opens up great opportunities for neuroscientists. 

Seamless solutions

Now labs can buy a complete solutions to automate their research. All components - maze, video tracking software, and other hardware options if needed – work together seamlessly for a plug-and-play solutions. All the researcher needs to do is run the experiment. 

High quality standard

Maze Engineers mazes are constructed from high quality materials and with established scientific protocols in mind, factors such as odor cues and other distractions are eliminated, and many have practical design features such as rotatable top and goal box in the Barnes maze and a modifiable radial arm maze. Scientific experts review all construction to ensure rigorous standards for data collection. 

Renowned video tracking

EthoVision XT has been on the market for over twenty years and is validated in thousands of peer-reviewed publications. Its core function is to track rodents via 3 body points as it performs its task in the maze. From these coordinates, a wealth of behavioral, location-based parameters can be calculated. In addition, EthoVision XT is able to integrate other signals and control hardware equipment for sophisticated test protocols.

Maze Engineers

Located in Cambridge MA and Chicago, IL, Maze Engineers seeks to create scientifically rigorous preclinical technologies with a specialization in Behavioral Science. Maze Engineers products are individually researched for each protocol and made exactly from literature specifications. These physiological innovations to allow efficiency in the animal stage of bench to bedside therapeutics.
