Biocompatibility

Biocompatibility

The DST housing is made of alumina, a biocompatible ceramic material that is not recognized as a foreign body by the recieving organism when implanted. DST loggers do not affect animals‘ health in any way when implanted. The loggers can be sterilized in a gas sterilizer or liquid sterilization e.g. 70-80% ethanol. The same logger can be reused as long as the battery lasts assuring dependability of the obtained measurements. All Star-Oddi probes are delivered with an individual calibration certificate, verifying temperature accuracy in each temperature calibration point.
