The RET-5 Rectal Probe for very small animals (neonatal mice). Flexible polyurethane sheath with smooth rounded tip.

36'' long (can be made longer), 0 .024'' diameter, max at tip 0.03''.

Time constant 0.12 seconds.

Time Constant is defined as the time required to reach 63% of final temperature in liquid. An accurate reading is obtained when the reading stops changing, typically 5-10 time constants.

Maximum Temperature refers to intermittent use of probe. When probe is used for continuous measurements, maximum temperature should be reduced by 25% unless specified.
