ClockLab is the most sophisticated and easy-to-use data analysis tool for Circadian Biology studies. As the clear industry standard, ClockLab combines a point-and-click interface with state-of-the art algorithms. Embedded controls transform each graph into a powerful and interactive tool for data analysis. Measure phase shifts in under 30 seconds with our fast and simple-to-use ClockLab program. Applied to mice, hamsters, rats, drosophila, humans, bees, algae, Eurasian Lynx, squirrels, gopher turtles, horseshoe crabs and soil chemistry signals from the Mars Viking Lander, this system really is the most flexible available on the market.

With ClockLab, simply paste actograms and other plots into your presentation graphics programs like PowerPoint, Illustrator or Photoshop – each graph is completely editable. Automated detection of activity onsets and offsets make it possible to:
  • Measure phase shifts
  • Measure mean alpha
  • Predict future activity onsets
Actograms are zoomable for easy navigation through long files, just drag on an interesting part of the actogram, zoom in, and then click to display the periodogram, FFT or activity profile for the chosen data segment – it is that simple!

Main features

  • Up to 448 channels on a desktop or laptop machine
  • USB interface for instant setup
  • Reliability with over 500,000 hours of trouble-free operation logged and thousands of publications
  • Independent Start and Stop for each channel with user-selectable file names and files can be in different directories for convenient segregation of multiple, concurrent experiments
  • Monitor almost any sensor – including running wheels and infrared motion detectors
  • ntegrated light control and light recording at 1-minute precision into each data file – no need to guess about blown bulbs, accidental chamber openings or faulty, mis-programmed or inaccurate light timers! Lights are controlled in up to 96 different animal chambers independently using the simple menu and slider control panel
  • High-density switch connections
  • Remote data access via internet to download files via FTP or network capabilities
  • Record switches, motion detectors, Minimitter ER-4000’s
  • Real-time viewing of actograms, both scaled and percentile, simply by pressing buttons to view them in sequence
  • Automatic detection of low activity levels for all channels viewed simply on a single window
  • Clock synchronization of to the computer’s internal clock
  • Multicomputer site license provided for ClockLab Analysis, the most sophisticated and easy-to-use circadian analysis package available!
  • Export all data and analyses to spreadsheet files
