easyTEL implants for rodents
easyTEL implantable telemetry system transmits physiological data from conscious freely moving small and medium subjects weighing 20 g or more, housed in a cage (ideal for mouse, rats, guinea pigs).
Our range of implants offers the ability to record the following parameters, depending on your study needs:
- Biopotential (ECG, EEG, EMG)
- Blood pressure
- Activity from acceleration
Cost-effective & disposable
Synchronizes with other signals
Easy to operate
Each implanted subject is single-housed in a plastic cage (typically 42x42x18cm). One easyTEL receiver is placed under each cage and collects signals from the implant.
easyMATRIX receives signal from up to 16 receivers and connects to the computer running iox2 acquisition software, via USB.
easyTEL-S range of implants, designed for small subjects weighing 20g or more (ideal for mice), provides 3 months of continuous transmission.
easyTEL-M range of implants, designed for medium subjects weighing 100g or more (ideal for rats and guinea-pigs), provides 8 months of continuous transmission.
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 this technique is obvious and well known: longer and better quality data obtained from less stressed subjects.
Choosing easyTEL system means opting for a reliable system coupled with a cost-effective infrastructure:
- No refurbishment and no associated costs or delays
- Implant can be re-implanted as long as battery lasts
