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.
The Homeothermic monitoring system is controlled using a 4.3-inch color LCD touch screen, this user interface allows for a clear view of the subject’s real-time core body temperature, the target temperature, and heating state. Audible alarms can be set to alert the user for abnormalities in the subject’s core body temperature.
