Operation:

A thermocouple is a temperature measurement sensor that consists of two dissimilar metals joined together at one end (a junction) which produces a small thermoelectric voltage when heated. The MLT1401 uses a type T thermocouple element with a copper/constantan junction.
To use the thermocouple in tissue, insert the tip of the sensor into a needle from the hub end until the tip is flush with the bevel. Insert the needle to the required depth then withdraw the needle along the lead, pressing gently forward on the sensor to keep it in position. Continue drawing the needle back along the lead until it reaches the plug end of the probe. Tape to secure the thermocouple in place.

Application:

The MLT1401 T-type Implantable Thermocouple is suitable for temperature measurements to a maximum of 150 °C. It can be used to measure rectal temperature of small animals.
