  • Small footprint for mouse or rat
  • Minimal setup time at the beginning of procedures
  • Heated platform
  • Intuitive touchscreen
  • Real-time numeric and graphic display
  • Recorded data easily exported for further analysis

The Small Animal Physiological Monitoring System (HPMS) is an instrument that measures multiple physiological parameters on one single small platform.

The system comes complete with heated monitoring platform, Android tablet with a protective sleeve and stand, Bluetooth communication module, rectal probe, and electrode gel. Adapter and cable for the tablet and Bluetooth connection cable are included. These components are all supplied in a sturdy case for storage and transport.

The platform includes four electrocardiogram (ECG) surface electrodes, a respiration sensor and a heated surface that can be used at a set temperature or in a homeothermic setup using the rectal probe. Additional options to monitor oxygen saturation (SpO2), blood pressure and exhaled CO2 (EtCO2) can be purchased separately.

Monitoring software is pre-installed on the Android tablet. All data is transferred to the Android tablet by Bluetooth for display and saving. A real-time display provides numeric values as well as waveforms that can be customized by the user. Multiple signals can be displayed on each of three graphs.

At the end of experiments, recorded data can easily be transferred to any computer for analysis. Scripts and utilities are provided to convert data in LabChart or CSV format and to display signals in Excel and MATLAB.
