Star-Oddi Loggers Used in Virology Research for Over 15 Years

Since Star-Oddi launched the first data loggers in 1993 our loggers have been used in a wide variety of research. After the release of our first implantable temperature sensor in 2003, one of the most prominent fields of research has been in the field of virology, including vaccine development.

Used in studies on a variety of viruses
Throughout the years, the Star-Oddi loggers have been used in research on multiple viruses. This includes studies on SARS, bird flu, seasonal influenza, and vector-borne diseases.

Suitable for all biosafety levels
The Star-Oddi temperature, heart rate and activity loggers are well suited to monitor both short and long term physiological changes in animals. They are suitable for use in laboratories working with any biosafety level, making them a good option for those working at BSL3 and BSL4. 

Below are the top five of the most cited papers using Star-Oddi loggers within the virology field:

  1. Severity of Pneumonia Due to New H1N1 Influenza Virus in Ferrets Is Intermediate between That Due to Seasonal H1N1 Virus and Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza H5N1 Virus
  2. New Class of Monoclonal Antibodies against Severe Influenza: Prophylactic and Therapeutic Efficacy in Ferrets
  3. Oseltamivir-Resistant Pandemic A/H1N1 Virus Is as Virulent as Its Wild-Type Counterpart in Mice and Ferrets
  4. Recombinant Modified Vaccinia Virus Ankara Expressing the Hemagglutinin Gene Confers Protection against Homologous and Heterologous H5N1 Influenza Virus Infections in Macaques
  5. Comparison of Temporal and Spatial Dynamics of Seasonal H3N2, Pandemic H1N1 and Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza H5N1 Virus Infections in Ferrets
