Compact Manual & Automated Radial Mazes (Panlab)

Compact Manual & Automated Radial Mazes (Panlab)

Compact radial maze solutions for evaluating spatial memory and non-spatial memory in rodents.

  • Allows automated standard experiment
  • Different possibilities of control for opening and closing the doors (manual or automated)
  • Animal detection using photoelectrical beams or video-tracking system
  • Mounted on a tripod with adjustable height
  • Automated options uses RS232/USB communications (no PCI needed)

The “Eight Arms Radial Maze" is extensively used in behavioural laboratories for evaluating spatial memory but also non-spatial memory associated with motivational cues (classically food).

Panlab propose 3 solutions for radial maze experiments:

  • Manual radial maze (76-0227/LE760 and 76-0228/LE762) that can be used optionally with the SMART video tracking software
  • Semi-automated radial maze (76-0229/LE767 and 76-0230/LE769) that can be used optionally with the SMART video tracking software
  • Automated radial maze with photobeams (76-0231/LE766 and 76-0232/LE768), needs the 76-0144/MAZESOFT8 software
All radial mazes consist in a central area with eight sliding doors giving access to eight equally-sized arms. The maze, made of black Plexiglas, is mounted on a tripod with adjustable height high (until 1m). Each arm has lateral walls with a height higher in the proximal side of the arm than in the distal side. The arms are easily detachable by unscrewing an underneath fixing knob. In the distal extreme of each arm, a detachable recessed cup can be installed or replaced by cover (all included).

The sliding doors can be opened and closed automatically or manually:

  • Automated doors operation can be controlled by the animal position throughout the test using the Mazesoft-8 software associated with photoelectrical cell mounted on the radial maze and the corresponding control unit. See the application sheet available in the Download section.
  • Manual doors operation can be made remotely by the user by using the switches available on the control unit.
  • Manual doors operation can be made in situ by the user by using the threads provided for opening of closing each door.
A water version of the radial maze is also available (see related aquatic radial maze and circular pool products).
