These sensors are available 2 different sizes and shapes to best adapt to the size of your animals:
- Thigh sensor for mice and rats ≤ 100 g: provides a strong signal from the femoral artery
- Paw sensor for rats> 100 g: allows quick measurement over a hairless area
These sensors are designed to provide the highest quality measurements.
A sensors is composed of 2 parts: MRI clip made of plastic that does not contain the sensor and the actual sensor that is built in to the end of the cable.
To assure the highest level of accuracy it is recommended that you replace each sensor after 100 hours of use.
