DST micro-T

If you cannot find the part number in the documentation please provide detail. Specific to this item, it could include part number or application detail, (ex. 20 meters of cable, or 20 litres of volume)

The small thermo logger is a Data Storage Tag that measures temperature and stores the measurements in an internal memory. All measurements are time related, utilising a real time clock inside the tag. The recorder is based on an ultra small microprocessor and microelectronics. The DST housing is made of bio-compatible material, so it doesn't endanger the health of the tagged animal when used as an implant.

DST micro-T Temperature Recording Data Storage Tag. The smallest temperature recorder on the world market!

Easy to use
Using the DST loggers is quick and simple. DST micro-T is supported by Mercury software and the Communication Box, which works as an interface between the logger and the computer. Logger is ready for recording after the user has set the start time and sampling interval through the Mercury software. Recorded data is uploaded in the Mercury software, where the results can be analysed in graphic and tabular form. Data can be opened/imported in other programs, for example Excel. When data has been retrieved the logger can be sterilised and reset for new recordings.

Features
- Sampling interval is user defined when starting the logger
- Wireless transfer of data to a PC computer
- Measurements displayed with date and time
- Data can be imported into other programs
- Accuracy better than +/-0.2°C

Research applications
DST micro-T was originally developed as an implant for fish and marine animals collecting water temperature preferences of the animals . DST micro-T has also been used in the pharmaceutical industry for several years. Star-Oddi recorders are a great asset to researchers in various stages of drug development because of their small size, high accuracy and bio-compatibility.
