Among other things Ellegaard Göttingen Minipigs has experience in supporting customers in establishing the Göttingen Minipig in cardiovascular telemetry studies by providing hands-on support at the customer facility in surgical preparation of the animals thus maximizing the chances of telemetry implants which give good and stable signals. This approach ensures a fast learning curve and makes it possible to have operational telemetered animals available very fast.
