RightTemp® Temperature Monitoring & Homeothermic Control Module

The RightTemp Temperature Monitoring and Homeothermic Control system allows you to accurately monitor and maintain mouse body temperature. Simply set your desired core body temperature and the system will automatically control the warming pad so the animal’s core temperature never goes above or below your set temperature. There aren’t any hot spots like you see with traditional warming pads.

About Far Infrared (FIR) Warming

The pads warm the animal through far infrared (FIR) warming. Far infrared light is absorbed by cells deep within the body of the animal which safely raise the core body temperature. FIR light warms the body without warming the air between the FIR source and the body. FIR is totally safe; in fact, 80% of the sun’s rays are in the low energy, far infrared range. FIR waves resonate with organic matter and penetrate deep into the body. The energy level of water in the body’s cells is gently increased through “resonant absorption” warming the inside of the body. The body can absorb as much as 90% of FIR heat compared to only 20% with conventional warming pads. Studies have shown that FIR can maintain therapeutic temperatures longer when compared with conventional heating methods. Less mouse warming is required with FIR than with conventional techniques. FIR allows researchers to safely warm animals for a longer period of time without unknowingly overheating the animal. Your animal can now be warmed over an extended period of time without having to constantly increase the temperature. No hot spots like you see with traditional warming pads.

FIR warming increases body metabolism, thereby discharging anesthetics and toxins, which aid in faster recovery from surgery.

The Multi-Functional Controller Provides 3 Options for Use:

  • Control/maintain core body temperature by using both sensors (rectal probes)
  • Set desired pad temperature using the pad sensor only
  • Adjust pad temperature by changing the percentage of power to the pad using no sensors
