Advancing Research with Continuous Glucose Telemetry

Intermittent blood sampling is the most commonly used method of measuring glucose in preclinical research; however, intermittent blood sampling only allows a small number of samples within any set period of time due to welfare concerns related to loss of blood volume. These concerns plus labor requirements limit the number of assays that may be performed on a subject. When using continuous glucose telemetry, these  limitations do not occur and measurements are available around the clock, without the need for blood draws or laboratory personnel to be present.

Monitoring physiological events using telemetry allows continuous data collection in conscious, unrestrained animals without the artifacts of anesthesia, restraint, or excessive animal handling (stress).  In addition, telemetry often reduces the number of laboratory animals needed in experiments. The advantages of continuous blood glucose are further detailed in this whitepaper.
