The National Institute on Aging (NIA) has awarded Vulintus a Phase I Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant to develop our OmniHome system. OmniHome is a self-contained operant behavior system, wireless and battery-powered, that is designed to fit into standard rack-mounted home cages with no required modification of the rack. With Phase I funding, Vulintus will produce ~20 prototypes for validation testing in Dr. Catherine Thorn’s lab at the University of Texas at Dallas. If you’re interested in perhaps becoming a OmniHome beta tester, please contact us.
Come see us at the Society for Neuroscience Annual Meeting 2018 on November 4-7. We'll be demoing MotoTrak and OmniTrak systems, and talking about exciting new products we have in store for 2019. Check out these posters, which present data from Vulintus systems, and then come by the booth to see how we can help accelerate your research!
The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) has awarded Vulintus a Phase I Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant to develop our HabiTrak device. HabiTrak is a small, wireless device designed to be placed inside small animal home cages to track their health and activity using a suite of miniature sensors. With integrated WiFi and Bluetooth LE, HabiTrak can send data directly to the cloud. If you’re interested in perhaps becoming a HabiTrak beta tester, please contact us.
Join us in San Diego at the Society for Neuroscience Annual Meeting 2017 on November 12-15. Stop by and see us at booth #1729, where we'll be demoing our MotoTrak and OmniTrak systems. It's a great year for MotoTrak! Here's a list of twelve posters that we know of that will presenting MotoTrak data, covering a range of motor disorder models. Check out the posters and then stop by to see us to talk about how we can help accelerate your research!
Dr. Jason Carmel's Motor Recovery Lab at Burke Medical Research Institute published a video in the Journal of Visualized Experiments (JoVE) demonstrating how they've used the Knob Supination Task with MotoTrak systems to study spinal cord injuries. The video is open-access, and you can check it out here to see the task in action:
