The direct current heating plates for small rodents (mice and rats) are designed to keep the animal's body temperature while it is in anesthesia. They are made from black anodized aluminum. Either model possesses feet, resulting to its elevation of 0.64 cm above the surface it sits on, such as a table or stereotaxic stage. The heat plates are provided with a feedback sensor to prevent overheating when used with TCAT-2 series controllers. Custom sizes are available, too, with longer lead times.
