Innovative Products, Innovative Research

Our primary product line, PhenoScan, is comprised of multiple independent software programs, each optimized for recording and analysis of unique behavioral phenotypes. Each system allows high-throughput, real-time video analysis of animal activity. After video analysis, our programs export the data in an easy-to-use spreadsheet format for statistical analysis.

Flexibility is important to us, and our systems can accommodate the needs of small academic labs as well as large commercial companies, and everything in-between. Clever Sys. products are used by government labs at the National Institutes of Health; academic labs at Johns Hopkins University and MIT’s Whitehead Institute; pharmaceutical companies Pfizer, GlaxoSmithKline, Johnson & Johnson, and Merck; and independent research groups like the Howard Hughes Institute, the Salk Institute, and the Jackson Laboratory. Whether you have a few animals or a few hundred, Clever Sys can work for you.

What Makes Us Different?

In addition to working with complex behaviors such as home cage behaviors of rodents and primate, social behaviors, animal seizures, stereotypic behavior under drug effects, all our products provide many unique parameters that others do not: turning ratio, proximity score, heading error, stretch-and-attend, head-dipping, body-across-2-zones, precise measurement of eating and drinking behaviors, and unconstrained circadian rhythm of behaviors, are just a few examples.
