UTILIZING MAGNETIC MICROWIRES FOR SENSING IN BIOLOGICAL APPLICATIONS
Igor Sulla – Rudolf Sabol – Peter Klein – Rastislav Varga – Ján Gálik
In the presented short communication the authors refer on the first testing of microwires for monitoring the position of rats. Single piece of microwires was implanted in general inhalatory anaesthesia (by 1.5% Isoflurane with oxygen) via two small sur-gical incisions into subcutaneous tissue at the back of the rat. By help of the simple contactless coil, produced on the plastic tube, it was possible to assess the position of the rat inside the tube and monitor eventual movements of the animal.
