Automated Home Cage Based LightSpot Test

The proprietary LightSpot Test is a one-night anxiety test that measures the rodent’s response to an anxiogenic stimulus in an automated home-cage. A light spot is switched on during the dark phase of the mouse, which induces anxiety-like behaviour. This can be observed as avoidance behaviour, such as hiding in the shelter compartment.

Most commonly used in combination with:

  • Screening of anxiolytic compounds in WT mice
  • Altered anxiety in disease models
