What are your suggestions for an IRT camera?

Looking to measure stress in cats using IRT. One study used a FLIR, but it is quite pricey. Any other good options? I think FLIR is a good brand, but I don't know enough about the specs to determine what I need.

Hello Kathryn, Flir are very high quality thermal cameras, this company specializes in this area and they are very high quality, but also expensive. We use a testo camera to measure stress in animals, specifically the testo 890-2 model. It is a camera for scientific purposes, has suitable accuracy and many useful functions, they are cheaper than Flir. And the price corresponds to the quality.

The aim of this study was to investigate the infrared thermography (IRT) to measure eye (IRTeye) and muzzle (IRTmuz) temperature to assess stress in sheep during shearing and foot-trimming procedures. IRT temperatures were measured on 89 ewes of two breeds (55 Churra da Terra Quente – CTQ and 34 Ile-de-France – IF). The IRT images were collected be...
Infrared Thermography (IRT) is a technique used in the inspection of constructive elements in buildings. It has a great potential for the investigation of pathological manifestations because it is a strictly non-destructive procedure that could be rapidly applied in fieldwork. This research analyzes the possibility of using active IRT to detect int...
