An alarming irreproducibility rate seeing in the biomedical sciences is a problem on many levels. In a recent survey among researchers conducted by the journal Nature, 90% of respondents agreed that there is a crisis in studies reproducibility. Selective reporting, biases, raw data not available, the pressure to publish, and insufficient peer review are some contributors to irreproducible research.
The digital ventilated caging system (DVC®) captures and records unbiased data during research when using mice as animal models. The system also detects undesirable variables affecting the studies and performs objective data comparison and analysis, increasing the chances of success in the study reproducibility.
