Single Segment Pressure Volume Catheters - Mice/Rats

Single Segment Pressure Volume Catheters - Mice/Rats

Pressure-Volume (P-V) catheters for mice and rats are for use with Millar's MPVS Ultra Pressure-Volume Systems.

  • Ultra-miniature 1F-2F (0.33-0.67 mm outer diameter) pressure sensors
  • Four electrodes (spaced for either mice or rats)
  • Pressure and volume measurement from a single instrument
  • Flexible, durable, small-diameter catheter material
  • High frequency response
  • Pressure measurement at the source
  • No motion artifact or damping of pressure signal

The smaller diameter of the catheters gives researchers a powerful  tool in the characterization of cardiovascular function by allowing access to smaller animals than ever before possible.

These Pressure-Volume (P-V) catheters for mice and rats are for use with Millar's MPVS Ultra Pressure-Volume Systems. These catheters combine pressure sensors and electrodes for simultaneous high fidelity pressure and volume measurements, enabling minimally invasive, continuous, intracardiac pressure-volume analysis.

  • Ultra-miniature 1F-2F (0.33-0.67 mm outer diameter) pressure sensors
  • Four electrodes (spaced for either mice or rats)
  • Pressure and volume measurement from a single instrument
  • Flexible, durable, small-diameter catheter material
  • High frequency response
  • Pressure measurement at the source
  • No motion artifact or damping of pressure signal

The smaller diameter of the catheters gives researchers a powerful  tool in the characterization of cardiovascular function by allowing access to smaller animals than ever before possible.

Millar's Mikro-Tip® ultra-miniature P-V catheters have revolutionized the possibilities for cardiovascular research in small animals. These ultra-miniature catheters are capable of measuring both left ventricular pressure and volume simultaneously from the intact, beating hearts of mice and rats. They may be used in either closed-chest or open-chest surgical procedures, as well as in isolated working heart studies.
