In this exclusive webinar sponsored by MBRose ApS, experts discuss methodology, best practices and provide guidelines for implementing a real-time food and water intake protocol using group-housed rodents. There is a focus on study setup and data collection of water intake, meal size, frequency and duration. Examples are provided of acute intervention studies like the leptin test as well as longer running experiments such as week-long food intake and eating behavior monitoring after hydrodynamic injection of plasmids with supposed effect in the brain. Methods and data are shown from an ethanol preference test in mice.

Key topics covered during this webinar will include…food/water intake and feeding kinetics can be measured in group housed rodents in normal social context without human intervention, studies can be setup for both short and long-term experiments with automated data collection, versatility and flexibility of system design for a variety of experimental protocols, example protocols and data from acute intervention studies and liquid preference testing
