Record the electrocardiogram in conscious hamsters!
MSI product number (MSI-011) The hamster ECGenie enclosure is perfect for acquiring the electrocardiogram in conscious hamsters. This hamster hub is also equipped with MSI’s through the feet technology. Unlike mice and rats that rest quietly on their recording platforms, the hamsters are always keen to climb down, so we developed this roomy comfortable enclosure for them to visit while their ECG is registered.
Part number MSI001A. Also known as Lead Plates, these reusable/disposable electrodes mate with your ECGenie to enable you to non-invasively record the ECG in your awake mice. Each lead plate can be re-used ~5 times, depending on animal behavior and your protocol. Shelf life ~18 months.
Each box contains 24 lead plates.
Challenge multiple muscle systems in your mice by having them pull a weightedsledwhile walking or running. As in human life, problems with strength and mobility may not occur until muscles, bones, and joints are challenged. Thesledkit empowers the researcher to have the animals pull up to ~300% of their body weight to identify early and subtle phenotypes. The “harness” is a natural paper sleeve, that adheres via an herbal glue for temporary hold on the base of the subject’s tail [the mice will usually remove the harness after several hours, and consider it cage enrichment!]. Kit includessled, weight set, and 10 disposable harnesses.
