Can I output data?
Yes, there are multiple options to record and manage data. The system includes one analog output (for a single parameter), or you may export all parameters digitally via mini-USB.
Is the PhysioSuite compatible with my stereotaxic system?
Yes, the PhysioSuite can be used alongside your stereotaxic frame.
What can I use to clean the warming pads?
They can be cleaned using a germicidal or antiseptic soap with warm water. It is recommended to use a disposable pad cover. This helps to maintain a sterile environment (if necessary) and also aids in the clean-up after the procedure. Because the pads use far infrared heat, there is no concern about the additional layer inhibiting the animal from being warmed properly.
What material are the warming pads?
The pads are comprised of a 3mm carbon wire, a layer of foam insulation, and PVC woven fabric. There is a small metal connector where the wire meets the pad.
Can I use the RET-2 or RET-3 Probes with the RightTemp?
No, the RET-2 and RET-3 temperature probes are not compatible with RightTemp.
What does the percent sign (%) indicate?
The percent sign (%) indicates percentage of power. Percentage of power ranges from 0% to 100%.
What is the maximum temperature of the pad?
The maximum temperature is 45C. Temperature of the pad depends on the usage factors, such as the ambient temperature, the surface material of the table, etc.
Can I display temperature in Fahrenheit?
No, the warming pad controller displays temperature in Celsius.
What material is the probe cover?
The probe covers are made of epoxy resin.
What are the dimensions of the temperature probes?
The probes are 1.9mm in diameter and approximately 80mm long.
Can I sterilize the controller with vaporized hydrogen peroxide (VHP)?
Yes, the controller can be sterilized with hydrogen peroxide gas (or VHP). You may use the same sterilization protocol used for laptop computers and other electronics in your facility. Be sure to open any caps or ports to allow the gas to reach inner mechanisms and tubing, if applicable.
