WMicrotracker Smart is our new technology with which you can get detailed information about behaviour of small animals populations in function of time and space. Including Multiworm path tracking.

It is a modular bug tracking system to quantify small organisms behavior in
small Petri dish format (35mm Petri dish). It allows to get reliable quantification of animal population movement.
It has the capability to work in 2 different modes:
1- Face-down IR Imaging: Allows the Multi Worm Path Tracking using NGM cultures.
2- IR Light Scattering: allows the overall quantification of worm movement in liquid and NGM culture using a big microbeam infrared array (equivalent to ARENA funcionality).



  • Simple and highly reproducible readings.
  • Detection of infrared microbeam diffraction, without morphometry.
  • Infrared imaging plus image processing
  • Non-invasive technology: It uses very low power infrared radiation, without affecting the animals’ behaviour.
  • Fast data processing: It calculates the movement in real time, with 5minutes time block resolution.
  • Silent with maintenance-free: no mechanical moving parts.


For any early stage or experienced laboratory. With affordable price for small laboratories. Focused on a varied field of experimentation. Intended for the academic and research sector, university teaching and companies.



The system detects the movement of organism populations through infrared imaging.

Application examples


20 adult C.elegans were cultured in a 35mm Petri Dish with NGM+FuDR. Data acquisition has been performed once a day, using 5 minute acquisition lapse. Plates were subjected to “tap” stimulation before each meassure.

The plots shows the single worms trails on the plate, and its reduction with age
