The Florey’s world class Behavioural Phenotyping facility provides an opportunity to establish and/or expand the characterisation a vast array of rodent models. Our state of the art equipment and testing capability enable both powerful and sensitive screening of rodent behaviours.

The facility currently supports the needs of scientists within Florey as well as the wider scientific Parkville and Monash precincts.

The facility has the capacity to examine:

  • Learning and Memory
  • Fear and Anxiety
  • Motor performance i.e Balance, Gait and Muscular strength
  • Pain
  • Social Behaviours
  • Addiction and Craving
  • Circadian patterns



We have experience in the implementation of many different types of experimental techniques to a variety of rodent models.

Our experienced team can provide full end to end service:

  • project consultation
  • study design
  • ethics application preparation and/or submission
  • rodent phenotyping to target a particular deficit or a behavioural screen
  • statistical data analysis
  • full reporting of behavioural data
