The Mini-Mitter Company, Inc.
Sunriver, Oregon 97707 USA
phone (503) 593-8639
fax (503) 593-5604

Data Sciences
2678 Patton Road
St.Paul, Minnesota 55113 USA

Mini-Mitter transmitters can be equipped for at least temperature,
activity, or/and ECG. EEG transmitters with up to 4 channels are 
also available, and blood pressure transmitters including a tranducer. 
There is also a brain probe transmitter (25 gauge with thermistor)
that can be made at 3-4 months' notice. Transmitters can be implanted. 
Some receivers operate at a few feet's distance only, but there are 
also transmitters operating at hundreds of feet, and receivers capable
of picking up the signal at 500...1500 feet.

Data Sciences transmitters come in 1,2,3 and 4 channel versions. One uses
one's own electrodes (ECG, EEG, EMG). They also provide blood pressure
tranducers. The receiver is a flat unit to be placed no more than 
40 cm from the transmitter, which can be implanted subcutaneously 
or intraperitoneally into an animal.
