How many times can a rat telemeter be used?

The exact number of uses will vary and depends on the telemeter model, customer application and how carefully telemeters are handled during implantation, explantation and cleaning.

It is strongly recommended that users of the rat telemetry system carefully study the surgical  and explantation  videos available on our website to ensure that best practice is followed.

For standard applications with an experimental duration of 4-6 weeks and ensuring best practice is followed, experienced users will be able to get four or five uses from each telemeter.

In order to manage expectation around re-use it's necessary to understand the customers experimental application and desired protocol.
