Non-invasive, flexible, MRI compatible

  • Non-invasively measure up to 7 parameters without invasive surgical procedures including real–time measurements of arterial O2 saturation, heart rate, breath rate, temperature, pulse distention, breath distention and activity in conscious and anesthetized rodents
  • Can be used on mice, rats and other small animals (for example small neonatal mice, large adult rats, guinea pigs and ferrets) with a pulse rate of 90 – 900 BPM.
  • Monitor both anesthetized and conscious subjects using special sensors and software modules allow you to
  • MRI compatible. Monitor your subject’s health during MRI imaging using the MRI sensor.
  • Monitor up to 16 individual animals by adding the optional Multiplexer.
  • USB plug-and-play technology to quickly and easily turn your Windows-based computer into a physiological, real-time monitor.
  • The MouseOx Plus has multiple sensors available to monitor or record measurements on both conscious and anesthetized mice, rats and other small animals. Two sensors are included free of charge with each MouseOx Plus System. Select from CollarClip™, ThroatClip™ , Mouse Thigh sensor and Rat Foot Sensor.
