The MPVS Ultra simultaneously and continuously measures high-fidelity left ventricular pressure and relative volume from the intact beating hearts of animals ranging in size from transgenic mice to cats. Using the MPVS Ultra, cardiovascular pressure and volume signals can be plotted against each other in real time, generating the characteristic pressure-volume (P-V) loops that are an excellent illustration of the cardiac cycle in normal or diseased conditions of the living heart. MPVS Ultra is the only complete solution for measuring real-time cardiovascular pressure and volume in small and large animal models with an industry-leading seven volume segments.
