Zantiks units are increasingly popular with labs worldwide. All the different types of unit are built along the same principles, enabling high throughput and easy-to-run experiments. The benefits of choosing Zantiks are that each unit.
The Zantiks AD unit is suitable for:
•Tracking fish in experimental environments (e.g. startle, pre-pulse inhibition 'PPI', novel open field, Y-maze, Conditioned Place Preference 'CPP').
•Training fish and mice (with food reward) in operant tasks, such as discrimination reversal learning, 5-choice serial time task, or match to sample.
•Tracking multiple singly housed fish like Pavlovian avoidance learning (mild electric shock) or CPP.
Overall unit size (external,approx. mm): 220 width, 300 length, 500 height
Tank / cage size (internal,mm): 140 width, 200 length, 150 height (water to 100)
3 lengthwise dividing inserts
3 widthwise dividing inserts
visual images (floor / ceiling screen)
food magazine insert
mild electric shock
experimental chamber (tank/cage)
solid and liquid delivery (motor)
motor (operation of peristaltic pump or solid food delivery)
screen (under tank)
•Provides an isolated and stable environment for consistent results
•Is networked and controlled via the web browser of any device
•Generates live video view, provides real-time video recording
•Includes software, uses the Zanscript language for experiment specification
•Provides real-time results processing and output in .csv format
•Has an integrated camera, computer, experimental chamber and built-in stimuli
•Takes up little laboratory space as it is compact
•Requires only 12V power and a network connection
