A streamlined approach to recording and organizing time-based behavioral research data. Originally designed with Drosophila (fruit fly) analysis in mind, it can be easily adapted to numerous research applications.
Specify relevant genetic information for each test organism. For convenience, genotypes that have been used in previously completed assays are automatically stored to reduce unnecessary typing.
Four independent timers allow for collection of four channels of time data within each assay. To make data collection easier, timers can run in either press-and-hold mode or tap-to-start/pause mode and can switch between the two at any time.
All data are automatically saved as soon as an assay is completed and is stored in a table, organized by date. They can be exported to a CSV file, which can then be emailed, copied, imported into an Excel/Numbers spreadsheet, etc.
