Animal Temperature Control System

Discontinued - we do have the  25cm x 25cm heating pad avaialbe. (currently5 in-stock) 


Consists of:

  • Heating pad
  • Rectal thermistor probe
  • Control box

The heating pad is placed under the animal, while the tip of the rectal probe is inserted and taped to the tail. The pad and probe are then plugged into a control box via a junction and a 2.5 meter shielded cable. The control box slowly varies its output based on the resistance of the thermistor. The heating pad uses a proportional DC voltage that does not generate electrical noise or switching transients, making it appropriate for electrophysiology.

With the 40-90-3 Liquid Immersion Heating Rod and 40-90-6 Liquid Thermistor Insert, the temperature controller can also be used to heat up to 1L of liquid and maintain a constant temperature to serve as a water bath or warmed perfusate.
