Identification and Temperature Technology

DLAR has a system for researcher use which transmits animal body temperature and identification data. It is ideal where data needs to be gathered without handling the animals and greatly minimizes time and effort spent manually monitoring temperatures. The system may be used on any experimental animals larger than 10 grams.  The system consists of programmable transponders which are implanted in the animal and a wireless reader which receives the transmitted animal body temperature and identification. The reader stores the data, which can then be downloaded into researchers data files.  Our research analysts can train you or help collect data for you.  To explore how this capability may be used in your research, please contact any DLAR veterinarian.
