These sensors are in the form of a clip which is applied on the neck of the animal.
They are available in 6 different sizes from 1 to over 500 g. Each sensor is delivered with its blank equivalent, without sensor, so the animal can get used to wearing it before starting the measurements.

These sensors are designed to provide the highest quality measurements. To assure the highest level of accuracy it is recommended that you replace each sensor after 100 hours of use. Each sensor is shipped with a “Handle Support” in place across the finger tabs to prevent plastic deformation that can accumulate over long periods of time. When not in use always store the sensors with the handle clamp in place.
The CollarClip, which is colored blue, is to be applied from the back of the neck of an animal, and can be used in both awake and anesthetized applications.
For awake subject, you need to have the MouseOx Plus-Premium software.
