About Us

World-class Behavioral Solutions for Neuroscience Research 

Panlab is a leading manufacturer and software developer of products and systems for life science animal research. The Panlab brand is a well-established name specialized in the field of neuroscience research, providing a wide range of solutions for studying behavior and physiology in small laboratory animals.

Committed with Biomedical Research


Panlab’s products help solve relevant problems in basic and clinical psychopharmacology. Applications include the study of brain functions (cognition, memory, emotion, etc.), the study of related pathologies (Alzheimer, Parkinson, depression, addiction, etc.) and the discovery and screening of new therapeutic compounds. 

For more than 50 years, we’ve focused on bringing the highest quality service and solutions to our customers, helping them drive meaningful results. 


Panlab has been serving behavioral neuroscience for more than 50 years (Foundation date: 1969). 

Historically, the company is the fusion of two companies: a Sales company (Panlab) providing the sales network and marketing and an R&D company (LETICA) providing the main lines of products and innovation. 

In 2015, Panlab became a wholly owned subsidiary of Harvard Bioscience. 


Innovation, Flexibility and Service

Panlab is continuously evolving to meet the ever-changing needs of physiologic research and our solutions are cited in over 15,000 publications. 

Over the years, Panlab has pioneered a number of behavioral solutions including:

  • Development of modular skinner boxes 
  • Moving the video-tracking systems from DOS to Windows™ 
  • The use of extensometric weight transducers for activity, position & intake evaluation 
  • The evaluation of non-invasive indirect blood pressure 


Constant upgrading and re-engineering of our products to maintain quality, reliability and applicability standards are a must for us. We offer consultancy services, enabling customization of techniques/products related to your field of interest. Additional scientific assistance and guidance in the application of various research techniques are available.  


Our Philosophy - Simply Powerful!

Who said that “advanced” and “flexible” are incompatible with “straightforwardness”? Our products are developed with the daily experimental process in mind - easy-to-use interface and highly flexible structure fitting the most applications and budgets. 

The advanced features of our products ensure reliable data and increased productivity, saving you valuable time and resources.
