DECRO SOLUTION

DECRO – THE FIRST CARDIORESPIRATORY MONITORING JACKET FOR SMALL MAMMALS

DECRO connected jacket helps improving medical research, providing research teams an innovative tool to monitor cardiac (external ECG) and respiratory function and activity level, in small laboratory animals in a non invasive way. DECRO helps 3Rs guideline implementation and enhance the welfare of animals used in research.

AN INNOVATIVE PHYSIOLOGICAL MONITORING SOLUTION FOR YOUR IN-VIVO STUDIES

Discover a new high-performance external telemetric jacket for in vivo physiological monitoring. DECRO solution provides high definition, quality and reliability for the recording of ECG, Respiratory cycles and activity index in conscious, free-moving animals over 200 grams.

DECRO has been compared with 2 reference technics and has shown a high level of agreement, both on ECG and on respiratory rate and tidal volume.

The parameters proposed by DECRO are particularly valuable when studying the effet of an acute or a chronic event on cardiac and/or pulmonary function, or in early safety-pharmacology and toxicology studies.

With DECRO, physiological monitoring in rodents becomes unrestrained, non-invasive, and simply available.

  • Simple
  • Reliable
  • Rapid
  • This is extremely simple to start with DECRO. No technical resource needed for surgery, but a short learning curve to dress the animal.
  • Less than 10 minutes to equip the animal with the jacket, the electrodes and the emitter.
  • Few minutes to launch a pre-recorded session on the software and start signals recording.
  • DECRO has been designed to monitor essential physiological functions with external telemetry that relies on sensors widely used in clinical and preclinical applications.
  • Moving from the first idea of a scientific need to the real solution with the proper level of performances has required several years of R&D efforts in Biosignals processing, electronic design and textile engineering.
  • In today's version, DECRO has been compared to existing technics such as whole body plethysmography  and cardiac implant and demonstrated  a high level of agreement (FELASA 2019, Flenet et al. 2017).
  • DECRO gives you rapidly the evaluation of potential unexpected effects of a drug candidate on cardiac and respiratory function in small animals.
  • No need to prepare animals with a surgery to implant a telemetric device.
  • No need to do separated studies to get access to 2 essential physiological functions in one single animal.
