Manual surgical monitoring techniques can be tedious for lab technicians as well as animals, given the multiple welfare checks needed per day plus the need for workers to update records accordingly. Further complicating matters, manual monitoring is generally done during daytime work hours, which causes researchers to miss out on valuable nighttime data points and activities. Fortunately, laboratories around the globe have a new tool at their disposal: implantable radio frequency identification (RFID) microchips. This innovative technology monitors rodents’ home cage temperature and activity, “hands-free.” READ MORE
