BASiĀ® Vetronics

Pets have become like children in many homes around the world. They demand and deserve the same healthcare possibilities. Vetronics develops and sells instruments used in veterinary clinics and pharmaceutical research facilities, both to ensure the health of companion animals and to monitor the safety and effectiveness of new drugs for animals and humans. Our diagnostic and surgical monitoring equipment will allow you to serve your patients' needs better, and at the same time get bottom-line results for your clinic.


Vetronics was the first company to develop and market an automated analyzer for electrocardiograms priced in a range affordable for a wide range of users. Although the technology used in the ECG Analyzer is directly applicable to human electrocardiograms it was decided to limit initial development to products for veterinarians primarily because of the major liability protection required for manufacture and sale of instruments used in human disease diagnosis.

The developers of the software and hardware for the ECG Analyzer and founders of Vetronics were Professors Jorge Aunon and Clare McGillem of the Purdue University School of Electrical Engineering and Professor Walter Weirich of the Purdue School of Veterinary Medicine. The methods of analysis developed for the ECG Analyzer are computationally intensive and became economically feasible only with the advent of the personal computer. The first ECG Analyzer was designed to operate with the first model of the IBM personal computer. A prototype ECG Analyzer was demonstrated at the AAHA conference in Orlando, Florida in 1985 and had the capability to measure, analyze and diagnose the canine electrocardiogram.
