Adaptation of Strain Gauge Sensor for For Mouse Urine Collection

The Department of Veterinary Medicine owns various highly accurate strain gauge sensors that are typically used to measure muscle tension. The department of urology wanted a solution to use these sensors to measure minute quantities of mouse urine to study the functionality of the prostate.

Taking various measurements, I designed and 3D printed a funnel adapter for collecting the urine through the study. Two iterations were completed until they were satisfied with the design.
