Glucose

Glucose

Glucose is one of a group of carbohydrates known as simple sugars (monosaccharides).
As the major free sugar circulating in the blood of higher animals and the main source of energy in cell function, the regulation of the metabolism of glucose is of interest to researchers in the fields of Diabetes & Obesity, Endocrinology & Metabolism, and Sports & Exercise.

LabChart, combined with the HD-XG glucose implants, gives you a way to record continuous blood glucose, eliminating the data gaps associated with manually obtaining glucose test strip measurements.

For an all-in-one solution, the Glucose Telemetry Foundation System is an ideal base package for your combination of biopotential, glucose, activity, and/or temperature telemetry recordings in small animals.

Signal Overview

Continuous Glucose Monitoring - No more data gaps.

Record, calibrate, and analyze continuous glucose telemetry data in real time and uninterrupted for long term experiments, using LabChart 8.

LabChart's Glucose Calibration Extension allows continuous blood glucose, temperature, and activity data from freely moving mice and rats to stream from the HD-XG Glucose Implants directly into LabChart. 

Using the HD-XG implants in combination with LabChart eliminates data gaps and ensures that you get high-quality glucose data, unimpeded by stress artifact, so you can make fully informed decisions from a complete and accurate data set.

Using the HD-XG implants with LabChart will:

  • Reduce data gaps
  • Reduce animal stress
  • Reduce measurement variability
  • Reduce manual labor
  • Reduce costs

The Benefits of Implantable Glucose Telemetry:

With implantable glucose telemetry, researchers can now collect data for 28 days or longer while reducing animal stress and measurement variability commonly associated with glucose test strip measurements.

Four important reasons to use Continuous Glucose Telemetry »

Proven benefits:

  • Telemetry is among the most humane means of monitoring
  • Fewer blood draws saves time and improves welfare
  • Fewer animals are required (sample size reduction)
  • Continuous stress-free data collection reduces variability
  • Quantify glucose homeostasis & glycemic variability

How to calibrate data for glucose measurements.

Use your own glucometer to calibrate your data or one of ours from our Glucose Calibration Kit.

You can calibrate during live data collection, or adjust your data after the fact with previously collected data points.

An all-in-one system for glucose monitoring using telemetry.

Existing methods of using test strips to measure blood glucose are labor intensive, stressful on animals and produce intermittent data. 

ADInstruments' Biopotential and Glucose Telemetry Foundation System provides researchers with an easy way to continuously stream glucose data from freely moving animals directly into LabChart software.

This eliminates the 5 current limitations of glucose monitoring by:
·          Removing gaps in your data
·          Saving on costs of materials and animals
·          Reducing manual labor
·          Eradicating animal stress artifacts
·          Integrating all your research signals within one system

Calibration and drift are also taken care of with the help of LabChart’s dedicated Glucose Calibration Extension.
