emkaPACK4G for large animals

emkaPACK4G is a non-invasive telemetry system, widely used in toxicology studies to monitor the physiology of freely moving large animals, such as dogs, primates, sheep or minipigs,

An external transmitter is worn into a jacket and provides simultaneously:

  • ECG
  • Lung volume
  • Posture and activity
  • Temperature
  • Blood pressure

Each signal type is available as an optional add-on, so you buy only what you need and can upgrade at any time.





Up to 17 signals produced simultaneously


Impossible data cross-talk with Bluetooth radio transmission


System Configuration

With emkaPACK4G telemetry system, physiological measurements are captured non-invasively and radio-transmitted by Bluetooth, to a receiver.

A classic system is made of:

  • One external transmitter, worn by each subject, into a jacket.
  • One or several telemetry receivers, positioned in the animals’ room, within 10 meters distance from their associated transmitters.

Each subject is therefore free to move, single or group-housed in its room, during the acquisition (max. 32 to 48 subjects per room).

The whole system is compact, as a single receiver can communicate with up to 16 transmitters, and is powered and transmits data through a single Ethernet cable.


Up to 17 signals can be recorded simultaneously from each animal, through various sensors plugged to the transmitter:

  • External electrodes record up to 9-lead ECG
  • 1 or 2 belts record lung volume for Respiration measurement by Inductive Plethysmography (RIP)
  • Non-invasive blood pressure (NIBP) is recorded by oscillometry, with an inflatable cuff placed on limb or tail
  • Core blood pressure is acquired from easyTEL+ implant for a Minimally Invasive Blood Pressure measurement (MIBP) or from a vascular access port (VAP)
  • A skin electrode or an implanted probe measures temperature
  • An accelerometer calculates posture and activity (3 axis + total acceleration)

Why choose telemetry technology?

Wireless technology has made possible the ability to reliably transfer high volumes of data from a freely moving animal. Advantages associated with these techniques are obvious and well known: longer and better quality data obtained from less stressed subjects.

With emkaPACK4G system, we offer 48 to 72 hours of continuous transmission on same batteries.
