iWorx offers the Opsens Fiber Optic pressure catheters in sizes starting at 1.0F. These catheters are recommended for measuring pressure in small vessels as well as ventricular pressures in small rodents. They are also highly recommended for recording arterial and chamber pressures in large animals. Being fiberoptic, they are suited for MRI applications as well.
Fiber Optic catheters offer superior sensitivity and temporal resolution compared to ﬂuid-flled catheters and are generally more suitable for measuring intracardiac pressures from animal species with high intrinsic heart rates.
RS-IBPFOx Systems include:
Available in 1–4 channel confgurations.
For integrating the Blood Pressure Measurement with other parameters, consider the IX-RA-834 recorder, which is an expandable 10+ channel system. iWorx offer many customizable solutions for your cardio vascular needs.
