Data loggers for drug development in the biomedical industry
Star-Oddi‘s implantable temperature probes have proven to be a great asset to researchers in drug developement for several years because of their small size, high accuracy and the practical and simple setup of the system. The Star-Oddi DST data loggers are well suited for preclinical studies.
Star-Oddi places high emphasis on working closely with researchers to further the technology in laboratory animal research where integrity and repeatability of the study is important.
Advantages at a glance
- Real time temperature data (available in micro and nano size)
- Reliable and accurate measurements
- Small size
- Simple and cost effective
Star-Oddi product range
The Star-Oddi DST temperature sensor product family for the biomedical industry features two different sizes:
Nano (17mm x 6mm, 1g) - Ideal for mice and other small research animals
Micro (25,4mm x 8,3mm, 3,3g) - Telemetry for real time temperature monitoring available - Suitable as implants for rats, ferrets and other larger research animals
Easy to use
Using the DST loggers is quick and simple. The Star-Oddi probes are supported by user-friendly application software (Mercury) and a communication box which works as an interface between the logger and the computer. The logger is started after the user has selected the start time and sampling interval through the application software. Then the logger is ready to be implanted or deployed. Implantation of the probe requires minor surgery. Temperature data can be retrieved in real time using the company‘s telemetry solution. After the probe is retrieved from the test subject, the recorded data can be uploaded in the application software, where the results can be analyzed in graphic and tabular form. When data has been retrieved the logger can easily be sterilized and reset for new recordings.
Our employees have many years of experience in developing and working with research equipment for temperature research and are happy to advise on applicable products for each study. Customer satisfaction is achieved with innovative solutions and cost effective proven designs. Star-Oddi’s solutions and products are suitable for all types of biomedical research, from small scale to large scale.
