Why use our system? Fly phenotyping takes a significant amount of time and money, and often requires training and several people. With our solution, you simply unpackage our device, add your fly vials to it, and phenotyping starts immediately. Our system is non-invasive, and does not require any training or handling of flies.
Introducing Tracked FlyBox: Your Gateway to Advanced Phenotyping and Research Excellence!
We offer a one-stop solution for all of your fruit fly phenotyping needs. With our single system, your lab can assess:
- Behavioral Attributes
- Social Interactions
- Conservation of Biological Processes: Many fundamental biological processes are conserved between Drosophila and humans. This means that insights gained from studying these processes in fruit flies can often be extrapolated to humans. This conservation extends to disease-related pathways, making Drosophila a relevant model for studying human diseases, including those targeted by drugs.
- Genetic Manipulation: Drosophila has a relatively short lifecycle and a simple genetic makeup, making it easier to manipulate and study specific genes and their effects. Researchers can easily generate genetically modified fruit flies to mimic human diseases or conditions, allowing for the investigation of disease mechanisms and potential drug targets.
- High Throughput Screening: Drosophila can be used in high-throughput screening of compounds to identify potential drug candidates. Large numbers of fruit flies can be rapidly screened for their responses to different compounds, helping researchers identify substances that modulate disease-related pathways.
- Behavioral and Physiological Assays: Drosophila has well-characterized behaviors and physiological processes that can be easily studied. These include locomotion, learning and memory, circadian rhythms, and responses to various stimuli. These assays provide valuable insights into the effects of drugs on behavior and physiology.
- Cost-Effectiveness: Maintaining Drosophila colonies is relatively inexpensive compared to larger vertebrate models. This makes it feasible to perform large-scale experiments and screenings without the high costs associated with other model organisms.
- Rapid Reproduction and Short Lifespan: Drosophila has a short generation time and lifespan, which allows researchers to observe the effects of genetic and environmental interventions over multiple generations quickly. This is especially useful when studying the long-term effects of drugs.

Why is Drosophila used for biological research?
Drosophila melanogaster, commonly known as the fruit fly, is a popular model organism used in various fields of biological research, including drug discovery. There are several reasons why Drosophila is valuable for drug discovery:
Ethical Considerations: Using insects like Drosophila for drug discovery can alleviate some of the ethical concerns associated with using vertebrate animals for research purposes.
