• Berlin, Germany | FENS Forum of Neuroscience

    July 7-11, 2018

Come meet us in booth #120, we will demonstrate the latest solutions for the study of animal and human behavior and we’d be happy to discuss options to accelerate and improve your research. We would love for you to stop by and say hi!

We’re also exhibiting at the 12th Annual Canadian Neuroscience Meeting that will take place May 13 to May 16 2018 in Vancouver – save the dates and come meet us there!

Get to know Lucas Noldus

Lucas Noldus is the founder and managing director of Noldus Information Technology. With a Ph.D. in animal behavior, he developed the first version of what later became The Observer.
Watch this video to get to know more about Lucas. He’ll also attend many Neuroscience meetings.

SfN 2018 Event

Quality in preclinical data: Increasing the robustness and validity of behavioral and physiological testing in animal models for drug discovery

Neuroscience 2018 Satellite Symposium
San Diego, California, USA

Over the last ten years, the scientific community has been dealing with mounting evidence on the challenge of robustness, generalizability and translational value of animal testing in biomedical research. A recently launched project called European Quality in Preclinical Data (EQIPD, http://www.eqipd.org/), funded jointly by the EU and major pharma companies under the Innovative Medicines Initiative, brings together resources from both academia and industry in the EU and USA to create simple, sustainable solutions to facilitate data quality without impacting innovation and freedom of research.

At this symposium, experts from the EQIPD project consortium will propose and discuss possible tools, such as a fit-for-purpose quality management system (QMS) that may incorporate best practices from clinical research to advise on experimental design (e.g. number of animals, blinding and randomization of treatments). Such a QMS should also interact with and manage research software such as EthoVision XT video tracking. Symposium speakers will discuss the challenges in reproducibility, requirements for a QMS, the design of the system, and experiences of prototype users.

Attendance is free of charge, but seats are limited and you will have to preregister for the event. To secure your participation, send your name and company/institution to Yvonne.Humphrey@noldus.com. Complimentary drinks and snacks will be provided.

Location: TBD
Date: November 2, 2018
Time: 3:00-6:00 PM (tentative)

EthoVision XT is the world's most used video tracking tool, as well as a software platform to build your set-up on. Video tracking essentially means that EthoVision XT recognizes your animal from a life video feed or video file and is able to track its movement or activity.

DanioVision is the complete system designed for experiments with zebrafish larvae. It is for anybody performing research in drug development, safety pharmacology, behavioral genetics, circadian rhythmicity and related research areas.

CatWalk XTis the complete system for quantitative assessment of footfalls and motor performance in rats and mice.

ErasmusLadder is the complete system for the assessment of motor performance and motor learning in mice.
