NOISE AND VIBRATION SERVICES
Noise & Vibration Consulting & Monitoring Services for Animal Facilities
Turner Scientific brings 20 years of experience with noise and vibration in animal facilities to work for you as the first full-service firm focused on noise, ultrasonic noise and vibration. Turner Scientific is proud to provide a multitude of services, including the following:
Noise and vibration consulting for new construction or remodels
On-site noise and vibration measurements
24-hour monitoring services for sensitive models or during construction
Specialized equipment for sale or rent
VivAlarm 24-hour noise data can be sent directly to Turner Scientific for monitoring and analysis and for alerting relevant personnel at your institution.
Why should this matter to you?
Noise, ultrasonic noise, and vibration are present in all research animal facilities and laboratories. These acoustic and vibratory stimuli have been associated with changes in breeding and behavior, as well as a number of other physiological effects involving cardiovascular and stress pathways (see Turner et al, 2005 for a review). The result is that such stimuli can be confounds for ANY area of biomedical research using animal models because they add variability to measurements, resulting in greater statistical ambiguity in our research and the need for more animals.
We recommend that every animal facility measure noise, ultrasonic noise and vibration at least annually, anytime new equipment or construction is introduced, and anytime facility or research personnel see unexpected changes in breeding, behavior or health. Especially sensitive models or work that could be impacted by noise and vibration should use our 24-hour monitoring service. Facilities need to begin measuring and controlling for noise, ultrasonic noise and vibration with the same care that is given to light, water, food, and air quality.
Portable Carbon Dioxide Monitor
Model: MCO2-100 Handheld CO2 Meter
Up to 100% concentration.
Our portable, battery-powered 100% CO2 Sampling meter is designed to measure carbon dioxide in enclosed environments or inaccessible areas. Use it for CO2 applications like SMARTBOX® verification, cage levels, and induction chambers. Place meter directly inside the chamber or vessel, or connect tubing to input port and sample from outside the area.

Optional Measuring Software displays real-time measurements in table, graphic, and spread sheet formats
The BioSentinel microbe sensor from Kanomax can detect microbes such as fungi and bacteria in as little as 10 minutes. Using a patented heating system that serves as a catalyst to enhance the auto-fluorescing properties of these biological particles, the BioSentinel is able to detect them in real-time, providing early warning of a breach in the controlled environment and making it easier to pinpoint the source.
- Real-time measurement of microbes (in just 10 minutes)
- No special skill required to operate the sensor
- Light weight and compact
- Applications include: pharmaceutical, cosmetic, food and beverage production facilities; medical facilities such as exam and patient rooms; cooking and dining facilities
