to the website of the REVOLYZER (REVOlution anaLYZER), a cage rack system to measure the voluntary running activity of mice.
Here you will find information about the REVOLYZER and the relevance of mouse voluntary wheel running.
Due to its high capacity and cost effective design, the REVOLYZER is enabling the measurement of voluntary running activity in the standard experimental husbandry of mice, as well as in pharmacological and toxicological research.
The Revolyzer® is the worlds first automated rack-mount voluntary running measurement system. It is an easily maintainable and highly reliable voluntary running system developed by preclinics in 2008 and designed for the efficient conduction of pharmacological and toxicological studies. The Revolyzer 3TS is our current system version.
