HD-XG Blood Glucose Implantable Telemetry
The HD-XG glucose telemetry implant offers preclinical researchers a novel solution to obtain continuous, real-time, blood glucose, temperature, and activity measurements in laboratory mice and rats. This solution serves many research areas including diabetes, obesity, and other metabolic diseases.
Researchers can now collect data while reducing animal stress and measurement variability commonly associated with glucose test strip measurements. Adoption of the HD-XG in preclinical research studies will ultimately lead to the development of better drugs, better devices, and better therapies for humans while also minimizing stress artifact, reducing blood draws, and lowering sample size requirements.
- Second-by-second measures of blood glucose, body temperature & activity for at least 28 days from implantation and often 6 to 8 weeks.
- Range of 10-750mg/dL (0.5-42 mmol/l)
- Weight of 2.2g and volume of 1.4cc
- Glucose sensor placed in the blood stream
- In mice the sensor is placed in the aortic arch via a left carotid artery cannulation
- In rats the sensor is placed in the descending aorta
- Device body placement
- In mice the body is placed either subcutaneously in the right flank or intraperitoneally
- In rats the body is placed intraperitoneally
- In vivo calibration
- One multipoint calibration required
- Twice weekly single point calibration references recommended
