Temperature and activity measurement system for laboratory animals


The present invention is suitable to measure body temperature and physical activity of up to four small laboratory animals simultaneously.

Changes in these parameters do typically occur in allergies and anaphylaxis, as well as other acute or chronic inflammatory disorders. Hence a system that enables objective, electronic recording and automatic evaluation of these indicators is essential in basic science and safety studies during drug development.

Description

The present invention is suitable to measure body temperature and physical activity of up to four small laboratory animals simultaneously. Changes in the previous mentioned parameters are known to correlate with several diseases such as allergies and other acute or chronic inflammatory disorders. Hence a system that enables objective, electronic recording and automatic evaluation of these indicators is essential in science and pharmacy.

Application

  • Experimental animal studies
  • PoC tests for food, drug and vaccine safety

Benefits
