Custom Trial & Hardware protocol services

Complete interaction during the testing of your animals. Does it sound too good to be true? EthoVision® XT’s Trial & Hardware Control helps achieve this. And we can help you to use it to its full potential! We offer specific consultancy and even custom build your protocol for you.

Why use Trial & Hardware Control? 

Complete automation of research saves time, effort, and money. It will not only make things easier, but also enhance the reliability and validity of your results. This is how the Trial & Hardware Control Module aids your research. It lets you control external equipment and define protocols with EthoVision XT. This means that you can design test protocols that are not only based on the mechanical input from your animal(s) (such as a lever press) but also on behavior input coming from EthoVision XT.

Endless possibilities – help is on the way

The possibilities of Trial & Hardware Control are endless. For example, you can embed the logic of an entire Skinner box session, or create sophisticated rules for home cage experiments with PhenoTyper that can last for several days. Even with all these options, designing a protocol can be quite daunting. 

We can help you use EthoVision XT’s Trial & Hardware Control to its full potential in several ways. For example:

  • Building a protocol.  You can tell us what you need, and we build your protocol for you.
  • Training. We can teach you how to build a protocol for your specific research aims.
  • Solution set-up. We can help you pick out the right software and hardware components for a complete working lab set-up.
