Physiological Pressure Transducer

Physiological Pressure Transducer

The MLT844 Physiological Pressure Transducer is a highly accurate and robust piezo-resistive transducer. The dome is easy to fill and is quickly coupled to the transducer without any liquid between the transducer and dome diaphragms. This ensures the transducer never fouls and gives the transducer a long life expectancy. The MLT844 is supplied with three disposable clip-on domes. It is suitable for connection to any ADInstruments Bridge Amps.

The MLT844 Physiological Pressure Transducer is a highly accurate and robust piezo-resistive transducer. The dome is easy to fill and is quickly coupled to the transducer without any liquid between the transducer and dome diaphragms. This ensures the transducer never fouls and gives the transducer a long life expectancy. The MLT844 is supplied with three disposable clip-on domes. It is suitable for connection to any ADInstruments Bridge Amps.


Operation:

To prepare the transducer, first remove the protection cap from the transducer and slide it down the cable. Fill and flush the tubing system (dome, interconnecting tubing, stopcocks), prior to attaching dome to the transducer. To minimize the formation of bubbles, use fluid at room temperature or above and fill the system slowly. When this procedure is correctly followed, the filled tubing system should be free of bubbles and the dome diaphragm should not be distended. Attach the dome to the transducer (keep the filled dome vented to atmospheric pressure). Note: There should not be any liquid between the dome membrane and the transducer. Mount the transducer at the level where the pressure is to be measured. Zero and calibrate the Bridge Amp according to the Owner?s Guide. Following use, clean, dry and store the transducer safely in its box. The domes are disposable; however for animal use, they may be used a number of times by thoroughly flushing them between use. Extra domes in sets of ten are available (MLA844).

Application:

The MLT844 Physiological Pressure Transducer is suitable for measuring arterial and venous blood pressure in animals. It may also be used to measure intracranial, gastrologic and intrauterine pressures as well as urodynamic measurements by catheterization.
