Mouse Physiology Laboratory

Telemetric Recording

The mouse physiology laboratory is a world leader in the application of telemetric recording from mice and rats. Telemetry is the "gold standard" for the continuous validation of blood pressure, the electrocardiogram (ECG), electroencephalogram (EEG), body temperature, and cage activity in awake, free-roaming animals. From these waveforms, arterial pressures, heart rates, heart rate variability, brain activity, and diurnal rhythms can be evaluated to assess the physiological status of the animal. These values can be measured 24 hours a day over extended periods of time to monitor the same animal for months at a time. NEW: Combined pressure and ECG recording is now available in mice.

The mouse physiology lab will implant the transmitter, record all the data and work with you on the analysis. Many of the parameters can be measured at once depending on the exact study protocol. This system is 21 CFR part 11 (GLP) compliant. See our publications for examples of telemetric studies in a variety of rodent models.
