Body temperature

For a quick screen for alterations in body temperature due to a gene deletion or to the administration of a compound, we are using the Bioseb thermometer with ultra-fast rectal probes (reference).

Price: 5CHF per mouse per measure; for multiple measurements (time course, etc), please contact us.

The gold standard method for chronic measurements of body temperature in unstressed, cage-native conditions is the online recording of core body temperature by telemetry.
