PhysioTelTM Receivers for DSI Implantable Telemetry

DSI offers receivers for any size animal. Telemetry implants are designed to monitor and collect data from conscious, freely moving laboratory animals. Telemetry implants broadcast digitized data via radio frequency signals to PhysioTel Receivers. The receiver converts the telemetry information to a form readily accessible by the Ponemah Physiology Platform.

PhysioTel Receivers provide reliable reception of data transmitted via digital telemetry for a wide variety of species, animal sizes, and housing types. Models are available to monitor animals housed in plastic or metal caging as well as special experimental settings using running wheels, treadmills, runs, pens, and mazes.   

  • The RPC-1 is most often used for monitoring animals housed in plastic cages that can be placed on top of the receiver.
  • The RMC-1 model is typically used when monitoring large animals with D70 series telemetry implants housed in metal cages.
  • The RSC-1 is a smaller profile receiver compared to the RPC-1 and is designed for use in special applications; for example, when running wheels or treadmills are part of the study design.
  • The RPC-3 is most often used when pair housing small animal in plastic cages. This receiver is specific to 455 kHz frequency and 18 MHz frequency implants.This receiver may also be used when implanting two implants in one subject. 
  • The RPC-2 is most often used when pair housing small animals in plastic cages. This receiver is specific to 8 MHz frequency and 18 MHz frequency implants. 

The telemetry receiver comparison chart can help you to determine which receiver is appropriate for your research needs. RPC-1, RMC-1, RSC-1, RPC-3 and RPC-2 receivers are compatible with PhysioTel and PhysioTel HD implantable transmitters.
