Non-invasive systems for large animals

emkaPACK4G is a non-invasive telemetry system to monitor heart rate and  vascular effects following drug challenges, in large animals, such as dogs, primates, sheep or minipigs.

This wireless system can be used on freely moving subjects, for long-term recordings, whith an external transmitterworn into a jacket.

It can also be used for snapshot measurements, without jacket, which is especially useful for short term cardiotoxicity studies.

Benefits

1

Non-invasive

2

Modular

3

Impossible data cross-talk

Description

Non-invasive and reliable data

Physiological measurements are captured non-invasively and wirelessly transmitted by Bluetooth to a receiver. Bluetooth data transmission prevents any data cross-talk, allowing each subject to freely to move, single or group-housed in its room, during the acquisition (max. 32 to 48 subjects per room).

Advantages associated with this technique is obvious and well known: longer and better quality data obtained from less stressed subjects, allowing compliance with 3Rs principles.

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

 

 

Modular and compact infrastructure

Up to 9-lead ECG, recorded by external electrodes and Non-invasive blood pressure (NIBP), recorded by oscillometry, with an inflatable cuff placed on limb or tail are simultaneously acquired.

Additional signals are available as optional adds-on, so you buy only what you need and can upgrade at any time:

  • Lung volume
  • Posture and activity
  • Temperature

The whole system is compact, with one or several telemetry receivers, positioned in the animals’ room, within 10 meters distance from their associated transmitters. A single receiver can communicate with up to 16 transmitters, and is powered and transmits data through a single Ethernet cable.

Data acquisition & analysis

Electrocardiogram and blood pressure acquisition and real-time analysis is performed by IOX2 software. Further in-depth analysis is offered in ecgAUTO software.

Using the pioneering shape recognition techniques, ecgAUTO is able to analyze normal or abnormal ECG morphology. Single or multi-lead analysis provides beat-by-beat calculation of intervals (RR, QRS, QT), amplitude, signal elevation, area etc. A range of advanced features is also available, such as arrhythmia detection, Heart Rate Variability analysis and many more.

NIBP module not only provides parameters values (systolic, diastolic and mean blood pressure, amplitude, heart rate) but also shows how data where analyzed, through a detailed panel. This panel allows you to understand your results and, if necessary, to manually invalidate some irrelevant data points.

emkaPACK4G takes full advantage of emka TECHNOLOGIES software suite with:
