OF MICE AND MEN RESEARCHER

The Behavioral Spectrometer (http://behavioralinstruments.com), is a humane device that captures everything a research mouse
does without having to watch and score hours of video recordings. The inventor found Sigma Design Company and its team of mechanical design engineers for the job. Sigma designed, tested and now manufactures this ‘mouse house’, The Behavioral Spectrometer, right here in NJ. The job required advanced engineering analysis and skills to incorporate LED lighting, vibrations sensors, and isolation dampers. It has the capability of using advanced video and vibration analysis to record the most detailed description of mouse behavior ever.

This ‘made in NJ’ product has met with huge success in the research and pharmaceutical world. The Behavioral Spectrometer is
used by Rutgers University’s Department of Neuroscience and Cell Biology, Pfizer, and other global R&D laboratories for
the development of new treatments and drugs. The latest 4 systems were just shipped to a R&D laboratory in Austria. This is
another success story showing Sigma Design Company’s ability to provide manufacturing engineering and product development services to people like you. Sigma Design is your single source engineering and manufacturing resource for new products and specialty machinery.
