ExpTimer is developed as an easy-to-use timer to facilitate complex, multi-step experimental protocols.
The advantages of ExpTimer are that it takes away the fiddling around with typical lab timers, which have to be reset after each action, and at the same time it shows you what to do next. You just enter your own protocol, press “start” and you do not have to worry about timers anymore, especially when you already have your hands full with your protocol. If something goes wrong during your experimental procedure, just press “pause” (to pause the timer) or “reset” (to start all over again).
Of course, the program has a much broader area of application than experiments only.

    This timer software has proven to be an extremely useful tool during my fear conditioning experiments. ExpTimer helps me to simultaneously run several subjects on a strict time schedule. I don’t have to worry about resetting timers or think about which step to take next and in addition, I have my hands free to carry out my experiment. I have been running ExpTimer protocols of over 9 hours (total duration) and it works perfectly fine. This software is highly recommended!
