Head-Out plethysmographs are used for the study of restrained, conscious subjects. These chambers provide direct measurement of pulmonary flow signals with no temperature or humidity dependence, and no bias flow requirement. Chambers are available for a wide variety species including: Mouse Pup, Mouse, Rat, Rabbit, NHP. The Head-Out plethysmography system is ideal for researchers interested longitudinal studies without the use of anesthesia. The Mouse and Rat chambers feature the patented Allay™ restraint. Chambers are also compatible with other data acquisition systems including DSI Ponemah which allows for the addition of telemetry endpoints to be collected simultaneously.
