RightTemp® Temperature Monitor & Homeothermic Warming Control Module

mouse and rat temperature monitoring system


"The RightTemp works very well. Really keeps the animals warm and reads the body temperature very easily."

"We have used circulating water blankets in the past, and even heat generating light bulbs and the RightTemp is superior."

"The warming pad is excellent, we use ours during surgery."

The RightTemp Temperature Monitoring and Homeothermic Control system allows you to accurately monitor and maintain animal core 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.

Included with the RightTemp is a far-infrared warming pad and two temperature sensors (rectal probes) for mice and rats. The pad is 8" x 10" ideal for mice, rats, and other small animals.

Features and Benefits

  • Homeothermic controller
  • 1 warming pad, 8" x 10" with disposable sleeve protectors
  • 2 temperature sensors (rectal probes)
    • Warm with or without sensors
  • Configure up to 5 alarms
  • Customizable display
  • Chart and view temperature readings for both pad and animal
  • See the last 5 readings on the main screen
  • Upload data to your computer
  • Output data for use with strip chart software
  • 1-Year 100% Parts & Labor Warranty (2-Years Additional Warranty available)

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 "œresonant 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 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.

Each system includes a 10-pack of disposable sleeve protectors for the far infrared warming pad. Additional sleeve protectors are available in 50-packs under reorder code DCT-1520P.

PhysioSuite® Modular System

One unit for all of your monitoring needs!

The PhysioSuite Monitor is a modular system that allows you to select the modules you need now, with the option to add more modules later. You can include up to four modules in one unit. This significantly increases the amount of work space in the surgical area due to its compact size. The capacity of adding modules makes the PhysioSuite even more space efficient. The built-in screen provides you with critical information that is easily visible and customizable.


Module Upgrades

Modules can be added to a single unit at any time for an additional price:

*All PhysioSuite systems that include the MouseSTAT module also include one FREE mouse pulse oximeter sensor.

IACUC Guidelines

Are you monitoring your animals?

Make sure your research complies with an internationally accepted primary reference on animal care and use.

NIH Animal Care and Use Guidelines update issued! 
Page 122, paragraph 5, NIH Guide for Care and Use of Laboratory Animals, 8th Edition

"For anesthesia delivery, precision vaporizers and monitoring equipment (e.g., pulse oximeter for determining arterial blood oxygen saturation levels) increase the safety and choices of anesthetic agents for use in rodents and other small species."

Principles and Guidelines for Reporting Preclinical Research

NIH held a workshop in June 2014 on the issue of reproducibility and rigor of research findings. The workshop focused on the common opportunities in the scientific publishing arena to enhance rigor and further support research that is reproducible, robust, and transparent.

Physiological monitoring and precision anesthetic delivery help control variables in order to achieve greater reproducibility.
