EMbody Biosignals will have a stand at the StartupOlé event happening in Salamanca, Spain in April 2018. We hope to be showing our behaviour monitoring platform TrakBox, showing how low cost hardware coupled with intelligent software algorithms can revolutionise the monitoring of behaviour in organisms such as C. elegans. #startupole #startups
One of the things that was invaluable at our recent trip to the #Worm17 conference in LA was getting feedback on the features of our analysis software from would be end-users. In particular we have upgraded our TrakBox to include two new features: the 1st allows the user to highlight a rectangle of space on the worm trajectory map and the software will automagically calculate the amount of time the worm has spent in that area. [caption id="attachment_389" align="aligncenter" width="1112"] Now with TrakBox you can see how much time a worm has spent in a particular zone of the dish.[/caption] The second feature is regarding the roaming VS dwelling chart - the system now delves deeper into the dwelling portions of the worm's activity and will report when (and where)…
Well, LA came and went, we had a great few days, were run off our feet demoing both TrakBox and AutoEPG - the response was fantastic. We even had a stock of live worms we could use to do live demos. If you missed us at LA then please do get in contact and we will be happy to answer any questions, and if you were there but need more info then please do get in contact with us to find out more.
The TrakBox system is now complete in every sense - first production versions are now assembled and being calibrated. The software is getting some tweaks, but its there! Its been a long hard slog but we are proud of the finished product - a low cost system that allows for tracking of microscopic nematodes over long periods of time - not only that but the powerful software allows for some wonderful analysis of the rich data that is obtained. We are looking forward to exhibiting both our TrakBox and AutoEPG product at the upcoming International Worm Conference in Los Angles this June 2017 - we will be releasing more information about these two tools as we get closer to the date.
Everyone at EMbody HQ is very excited that this year we will be attending the International Worm Conference in California this June! (If we had a tail we'd chase it!) EMbody will have a booth where we will be displaying our TrakBox and AutoEPG products. All very exciting and lots of preparatory work going on behind the scenes.
