Small Animal Telemetry
DSI offers different implants to measure a variety of parameters in small animals, including:
- Pressure and activity
- Temperature and activity
- Biopotentials and activity
- Combination of multiple pressures, biopotentials, temperatures and activity
The design of the implant allows for subcutaneous or intraperitoneal placement. PhysioTelTM
implants can be re-sterilized between uses, extending their life and reducing costs. To further reduce costs, researchers have found the DSI Exchange Program
to be an incredible value.
PhysioTelTM Hybrid Digital (HD) Telemetry
This platform is the most advanced small animal option available from DSI today. In addition to acquiring the most accurate physiologic parameters specified for each device, PhysioTel HD devices offer digital transmission of the following data:
Animal ID: Each animal is linked to a receiver to ensure data collected is from the intended animal. This may reduce the need for independent marking methods.
- Battery ON time counter: Automatically tracks battery life and triggers an alarm in the software when remaining battery is low, ensuring data accuracy and quality product performance.
- Auto-calibration: Saves time because the software automatically downloads the factory-warrantied calibrations, reducing human error and making lost calibrations an inconvenience of the past.
Scientists seeking greater parameter accuracy (e.g. dP/dt) will find the HD-S21 to be ideal for high-fidelity applications. DSI has developed a technical note entitled, “DSI Pressure Sensing Technologies in Small Animal Chronic Monitoring Applications” to provide further information about how this technology advancement will enable many new small animal monitoring possibilities.
