DVF Presentations



The digital forum organized and hosted by Tecniplast S.p.A. was the first event of its kind where scientists, facility manager and in-vivo life science manufacturer openly presented data about home cage monitoring from cage/animal tracking to evaluate behavior in the home cage.

The 3 key take home messages were:

  • Animal welfare is mandatory to perform animal research and without having technologies that facilitate the communication between facility managers and scientist it is very difficult to have an objective evaluation.
  • 24/7 tracking technologies allow to see things that have been missing because current experiments are run when the animals generally sleep (day) or the pathology evolvement (e.g. stroke, cancer) can be only described over long term and continuous measurements.
  • Additional biomarkers/parameters should be defined in order to be able to contextualize the amount of data generated by such technologies

Taken together, such an open platform supported by a great social event and organization not only impressed the participants but helped to open a communication channels, allow network across institutions to help address the data reproducibility and call for the next meeting where more new “unseen”, “unexpected” and “disruptive” scientific results and methods will be presented.
