DigiGait is now the most widely published ventral plane videography instrumentation available for gait analysis in laboratory animals. Voluntary and treadmill walking, DigiGait performs gait analysis of mice and rats over a range of walking and running speeds.


The ECGenie is a rapid non-invasive solution for recording electrocardiograms in conscious mice, rats, and guinea pigs. Applications include arrhythmia detection, health monitoring, and drug screening in fragile transgenic and knockout animals, including pups.

Heart of the Matter

The ECGenie non-invasively records the ECG in conscious mice from day 1 of life. All ECG intervals, and heart rate variability in the time and frequency domain are reported. In vitro?
