ThermoStar Homeothermic Monitoring System
During the process of animal surgery or acute anesthetized animal experiments, maintaining animal body temperature is very important for the accuracy and reliability of results. This is a great way to prevent the mortality of the animal. To fulfill this need, RWD launched a new homeothermic monitoring system, the “Thermostar”, which is a closed loop temperature monitoring/controlling system for rodents. The system includes the control unit, 1 flexible rectal probe, 1 heating pad. The system can also be equipped with 2 pads and 2 probes for 2 animals. The control unit includes a 4.3-inch color LCD touchscreen that allows users to clearly view the subject’s real-time core body temperature, set the target temperature, view the heating state, and set audible alarms for subject’s core body temperature abnormality. A separate control circuit for heating pad and rectal probe ensures stability and safety of the system.
