Kaha Sciences Ltd manufactures, promotes and sells telemetry solutions for small animals, using the latest technology in physiological sensors with wireless energy. Kaha Sciences’ telemetry products have been in existence for more than 10 years and have been widely used worldwide in academic and research institutions, as well as biotech and pharmaceutical companies.
The patented wireless power technology that features a Mikro-Tip type catheter (Millar Inc.) which contains the solid-state sensor directly at the tip of it, was the first of its kind. This provides customers with the ability and confidence to measure highly accurate and sensitive long-term records, from intracardiac to intracranial pressures. The product range has grown to include specific and unique devices such as tissue oxygen and SNA / Pressure rangefinders.
The Kaha Sciences rat telemetry system sets the new standard in implantable wireless telemetry for measuring high-fidelity physiological signals from rats> 175 g. The system enables the measurement of true high-fidelity signals, such as ventricular and arterial pressures, sympathetic nerve activity (SNA), biopotentials (eg, ECG, EMG, and EEG), and tissue oxygen.
The rat telemetry system enables researchers to collect high-quality data from cardiovascular studies, safety pharmacology, and toxicology. Data can be recorded for long periods of time and under conditions of anesthesia or restriction. Additional benefits include reduced stress induced by animal handling as well as reduced laboratory maintenance.
The Co-housing function allows two implanted rats with their respective rangefinders to be housed in a single cage or a larger rat (> 350 g) to have two rangefinders implanted, which increases the number of signals that can be recorded.
The complete system includes the Telemeter, SmartPad and Configurator and integrates with any data acquisition system with analog inputs.
Benefits of the telemetry system
- Replaces ties, wires, and cables
- Allows long-term recording
- Allows monitoring in unrestricted environments.
- Reduces stress artifacts induced by animal handling
- Allows animals to be used sequentially as their own controls or for multiple studies
- Allows 24/7 recording of continuous measurements
- Reduces the number of animals required
- Reduces animal maintenance costs
Advanced telemetry technology
Digital data transmission, wireless inductive power supply, and backup battery enable 24-hour, 7-day-a-week digital data collection from telemeters implanted in conscious, free-moving animals living in their cages.
The Kaha Sciences mouse telemetry system enables the measurement of biopotential signals (ECG, EEG or EMG) in long-term studies. Single-use rangefinders bring affordability and efficiency to wireless monitoring and eliminate the need to remove, clean or restore. Minimize downtime between studies and take more time for data analysis and publication.
Kaha Sciences Mouse Telemetry is ideal for large volume studies that require high quality biopotential data. It can be used with mice,> 22 g, that live in their domestic cages and is compatible with any data acquisition and analysis system.

Kaha telemetry EEG data
Digital data transmission and a sampling rate of up to 2 kHz provide unmatched data quality and higher time resolution. Accurately measure parameters that are traditionally restricted to sharp or tethered experiments of animals living in their cages. Use the animal activity index to help interpret the data and refine research protocols.
