PACKWIN is a user-friendly and versatile Software platform developed with the aim to offer a powerful tool for conducting a wide range of experiments in different types of behaviour chambers. It typically controls the Panlab standard chambers for operant conditioning, self-administration, 5/9 hole and Vogel test, but its range of compatibility allows working with other behavioural chambers for Active/Passive avoidance and fear conditioning experiments...

Due to his new modular structure, PACKWIN 2.0. can be used in a highly flexible structure (Customised module – CS) allowing the experimenter to build a wide variety of different protocols for the configuration of basic programs for operant procedure (fixed and variable ratio, fixed or variable interval, fixed or variable DRL, positive and negative reinforcement, extinction, probability to obtain a reinforcement, etc.) with or without discriminative stimuli (light, sound) as well as more specific and complex user-defined protocols (conflict, DMTS, 5 choice serial reaction task etc.). Give the PACKWIN state-editor tool the oportunity to surprise yourself by its straightforwardness (no need of specific programming skills)!! A great number of editable raw data table and outpout numeric data&graph reports are provided integrated in the all-in-one structure of the software.

PACKWIN 2.0. also offers new specific experimental modules providing convenient protocol editor templates and ready-to-use run panels and data reports directly targeted to specific standard experiments such as the 5-choice Serial Reaction Time Task (5/9 hole module – HO) and the Vogel test.

In PACKWIN 2.0 version, a step ahead has been made in terms of user-interface and features that no other software available in the market can offer right now: new aperture assistant and experimental tool bar for guiding the user along the experimental process, new chamber simulator for checking your protocols without interrupting the data acquired from the real chambers, new batch analysis features for increasing the productivity of your experiment, integrated numerical and graph reports, direct exportation to Excel... and many other essential functions!!!!!! Who told you that performing operant conditioning studies was only reserved to experts?

PACKWIN 2.0 is not exclusive to Panlab chambers! Contact us for more information about how to use PACKWIN with your existing set of operant chambers (compatibility with Coulbourn and Med Associates chambers...)
