Clinical study equipment shouldn't break the jar
NightOwl is founded and run by researchers, so we're honoured if you consider including our creation in one of your research projects.
We have created the 'NightOwl Research Program' for Eligible Research because we understand that budgets shouldn't constrain your research ambitions.
Eligible Research is research that is:
- initiated or coordinated by an academic institution;
- not industry-funded; and
- not enjoying specific sponsorships that would otherwise cover the cost of the diagnostic equipment
NightOwl Mini is provided at a flat cost of $10 + shipping.
Exceptionally (typically when you invite us to join your research), we may waive all costs.
Access to raw data
Frequently, researchers are interested in getting the 'raw data' of the NightOwl.
Raw data might mean many different things to different people, and we welcome the opportunity to discuss with you.
As we provide NightOwl Mini at no markup, any support of your project comes at the detriment of our paying customers. Please understand that our most valuable resource is management's time.
While we are eager to participate in any research involving NightOwl, we understand that we should not hinder your research or its conclusions.
Nevertheless, we ask for the following courtesy if you want to avail of the reduced cost under the NightOwl Research Program:If you study validates the performance parameters of NightOwl, we request:
An opportunity to comment on the results prior to its submissino for publication;
Visibility on the inclusion of any competing diagnostic test;
A fair reporting of accuracies, which generally means the 4-class categorization accuracy.
Protocol sharing: this ensures that we can spot challenges early on and help you reach your research objectives.
A disclosure in your manuscript that the equipment was provided at reduced cost by Ectosense provides the scientfiic community with the neccessary transparancy on any potential biases in your work.
When raw data is shared, we may ask to conclude an NDA including clauses that prevent reverse-engineering our solution.
We cannot provide NightOwl for research that does not adhere to good clinical study practices.
Of course, we are always willing to enter into an NDA to protect the confidentiality of your research project.
