During the process of animal surgery or acute anesthetized animal experiment, maintaining animals’ body temperature is very important for the accuracy and reliability of the results, furthermore, it is an important way to reduce the mortality of the animals. To fulfill this need, we have a new generation of homothermic monitoring system “Thermostar”, which is a closed-loop temperature monitor/control system for rodents. The system includes the control unit, 1 flexible rectal probe, 1 heating pad, and 1 heat insulation pad.
Ferret Restrainers are constructed using optical quality clear acrylic, formed black plastic nose cone with an acetal locking slide. The restraining cylinder can be rotated as needed to provide complete access to the animal. The restrainers are mounted on a white acrylic base plate with suction cup feet to guarantee reliable stability during testing procedures.
