The Kaha Sciences team has actively been developing preclinical telemetry solutions for more than a decade. Wireless power and telemetry technology for animal research was first commercialized by Telemetry Research in 2004. By 2008, Houston-based manufacturer Millar began a collaboration with Telemetry Research with the goal of developing a technology capable of long-term, wireless pressure recordings. This lead to Millar acquiring Telemetry Research in 2012 and adding telemetry to its Life Science Cardiovascular Research portfolio. With Millar’s recent shift to the medical/clinical device market, pre-clinical telemetry technology and ownership has returned to Kaha Sciences in New Zealand.
Preclinical Telemetry Solutions
Kaha Sciences provides wireless telemetry solutions for a variety of research applications. Telemetry enables researchers to obtain physiological data in conscious, freely moving animals over long periods of time. Capabilities include ventricular and arterial pressures, sympathetic nerve activity, biopotentials (ECG, EMG and EEG) and tissue oxygen. Kaha telemetry offers multiple advantages over other systems including data quality via a high sampling frequency, multiple individual transmission frequencies for simultaneous recording of larger groups of animals with no interference and wireless power.
