Temperature monitoring for researchers who know results matter
Collect reliable stress-free temperature data using wireless telemetry 
Why Measure Temperature in Preclinical Research?

Thermoregulation is a broad area of research that focuses primarily on the organism's behavioral and autonomic responses to temperature regulation. Understanding this mechanism is important as it not only impacts core, subcutaneous, and skin temperatures but also heart rate, blood pressure, neurological function, metabolism, immune response, and behavior as the body generates and dissipates heat. 

To understand whether a drug or therapy impacts the animal’s ability to regulate temperature, it is important to understand its thermal regulatory characteristics, including its thermoneutral zone. The thermoneutral zone is defined as the range of ambient temperatures where core temperature is controlled without significant changes in metabolic heat production. Ambient temperature, age, species, and gender all play a role in affecting the animal’s thermoneutral zone.

Animal models





The continuous measurement of core body temperature using implantable telemetry is the gold standard for thermoregulatory measurements and helps researchers understand how a drug, therapy or disease state impact's the animal's ability to regulate temperature.

Thermoregulation studies are conducted in a variety of species, from mouse to non-human primate and including species commonly used in thermoregulation research, such as arctic ground squirrels and beavers. As temperature is one of the first signs of disease, it is used as an early indicator in a variety of disease models, typically by monitoring core body, subcutaneous, and local temperatures. Heart rate and physical motor activity are additional endpoints that are observed to assess overall health of the animal.

DSI Temperature Sensing Technology

DSI telemetry is completely implantable and designed for acquiring physiologic data from conscious, freely moving laboratory animals, reducing animal stress and ensuring the most reliable data. Our temperature monitoring technology offers researchers the ability to observe real-time core, subcutaneous, and/or local temperatures. All telemetry implants from DSI have the ability to monitor core body temperature and activity with other endpoints. Below you will find devices that are strictly used to monitor temperature and activity. 
Temperature Only Telemetry for Mouse (Miniature), Small Animal, and Large Animal Models
PhysioTel temperature only implants are designed for use in a range of research models, from mice to non-human primates. For more information about DSI telemetry implants that measure temperature along with additional endpoints, visit our implantable telemetry page.
