Transcutaneous measurement of Glomerular Filtration Rate (tGFR) is now frequently used in preclinical in vivo animal studies. tGFR allows consecutive measurements on the same animal, including multiple measurements on a daily basis. A description of the measurement device and its many applications, along with examples from the recent literature will be given. We will highlight the fields of interest in which the system is used and give an overview about its performance versus endogenous and other exogenous methods of GFR measurement. A special focus will be put on the precision of tGFR compared to standard measurements employed in the research setting.
