What we do
Pallidus Sensing develops smart sensors for rodent home-cages, to collect scientific data and improve animal care
Why monitor rodents in their homecages?
Improve animal care
Identifying disruptions in the home cage environment can improve animal care.
Ensuring a consistent home-cage environment can improve scientific reproducibility
Understand the housing environment
Changes in the home-cage environment can influence metabolism, behavior, and disease progression. The MR1 allows you to easily track the home-cage environment.
Monitor circadian rhythms
The MR1 allows you to easily measure circadian rhythms in rodent activity, and verify that facility lighting cycles are accurate
The wireless MR1 sensor detects temperature, light levels, humidity, and rodent activity from individual cages and displays data in real-time on a beautiful cloud dashboard.
How do I get started?
Purchase a starter kit and as many additional sensors as you need. We'll ship you ready-to-use sensors and manage the cloud server, database, and dashboard for you. Just clip your MR1 sensors into your cages and start collecting data!
