Data Analysis and Collection for Circadian Biology
Does it take you longer than 30 seconds to measure phase shifts? If so, ClockLab, the industry standard for the collection and analysis of circadian activity data, can help. It combines a point-and-click interface with state-of-the-art algorithms. Embedded controls turn each graph into a powerful interactive tool for data analysis. Our users enjoy ClockLab’s speed and convenience. ClockLab’s Analysis program has been applied to mice, hamsters, rats, Drosophila, humans, bees, algae, Eurasian Lynx in the zoo, grizzly and polar bears in the wild, radio-tagged squirrels in Alaska, gopher turtles in the wild, horseshoe crabs, and soil chemistry signals from the Mars Viking Lander.
- ClockLab’s data collection program incorporates a large array of features at reasonable cost:
- Up to 448 channels on a desktop or laptop machine
- USB interface for instant setup
- Integrated light control and light recording
- High-density switch connections
- Remote data access via internet
- Record switches, motion detectors, or any digital signal
- Paste actograms and other plots into presentation graphics programs like PowerPoint, Illustrator or Photoshop. Every graph is completely editable.
- Automated detection of activity onsets and offsets makes it possible to
- Zoomable actograms for easy navigation through long records. Just drag on an interesting part of the actogram to zoom in. Then click to display the periodogram, FFT or activity profile for the chosen data segment.
- Chi-squared periodograms, activity profiles, FFT’s and auto-correlograms.
- Bout analysis.
- Export all data and analyses to spreadsheet files.
- Access data in many formats, including ClockLab Data Collection format, Actiwatch, Dataquest, Minimitter, Trikinetics and many others. The program can also be adapted to custom data formats.
- Extensive batch processing capabilities for printing and analysis.
- Windows and Macintosh compatible.
