Commitment to the 3Rs

Commitment to the 3Rs

The 3Rs ethical framework is implemented by Star-Oddi in its DST biomedical loggers series. Being able to measure core body temperature without human interference reduces the stress placed on the animal avoiding consequential fluctuations in the temperature profile. This can reduce the number of laboratory animals used, with fewer animals needed to get reliable temperature data. As an example, the DST-HRT is the only leadless heart rate monitor on the market which minimizes wound pain and trauma of implantation for the animal.

Star-Oddi encourages its users to participate in the 3Rs principle in laboratories (reduce, refine, replace) all over the world by bringing new improved research equipment on the market.
