Overview of Animal Sensor

The animal sensor is for research on small animals (rats, rabbits, pigs, etc.). The sensor consists of a black plastic baseplate, eight 400 µm-diameter core emitter fibers and a collecting 3 mm-diameter fiber bundle. The fiber tips are inserted through the holes in the plastic baseplate; the protruding fiber tips length is easily adjusted to fit the shape of the sample. A rubber gasket holds the fibers in place and provides a spring-like tension to the fibers. The emitter fibers are filtered to balance optical intensity at the detector for a specific range of emitter-detector distances. To block the direct reflection of the light, a replaceable, black, foam rubber strip is placed on the bottom of the sensor between the detector input and emitter output tips.

Compatible with OxiplexTS.
