    This APT300 Transducer is an inexpensive pressure transducer which can be used to measure arterial blood pressures in all species, even on mice with a high heart rate. This transducer is typically used for arterial pressure measurement in vivo, perfusion pressures in isolated perfused organs such as heart or kidney, Isovolumetric Left Ventricular (using a balloon) pressures in isolated hearts from mice up to rabbits or pigs. 

    • Inexpensive
    • Reliable
    • Accurate
    • Low volume displacement
    • Suitable for virtually all arterial pressure applications
    • Easy to fill
    • Stopcocks Included
    • Simple holder for rod mounting

    The APT300 Transducer consists of a contact plate with cable and the exchangeable transducer head, which can easily be replaced. Contact plates with cables for different amplifiers are available.
