EndoGear4 Small Animal Transit-time Telemetry

Currently available in the US and select EU regions only pending application protocol development.

Biotelemetry System for Small Animals with True Volume Flow

EndoGear4 is Transonic’s newest telemetry implant for rats and small animals, 250 g and larger, that now includes our gold standard transit-time flowprobes. Measure blood flow and arterial pressure in freely moving subjects without the complication and restriction of swivel tethers or commutators. Implants have bidirectional transceiver communication to turn implants on and off remotely to eliminate intervention artifacts. Implants also include temperature and acceleration /motion; ECG leads may be added as required.

EndoGear4 implants are user-configurable. Transonic miniature perivascular flowprobes are available for the ascending aorta (cardiac output), renal, carotid and femoral arteries. Solid state 1F sensors provide direct pressure measurements. Finally, a telemetry implant for classic vascular resistance studies.
