I cannot tell you how happy I am to have the OptoDrum. The fact that it is easy to use and it relies on an unbiased method to determine ‘yes’ or ‘no’ decisions for mouse behavior helps a lot in designing and conducting experiments.
Dr. Abdoulaye Sene, Genentech
The results are finally objective. Until now, it was difficult or even impossible to compare data collected by different users.
Prof. Volker Enzmann, University Bern, Switzerland
The OptoDrum has a user friendly and sturdy design. It is incredibly easy to use and delivers results right away. On top of this, Striatech provides great support!
