The 1f fiberoptic catheter with a 300mmHg pressure range is designed for measuring BP in mice as well as large animals, The high frequency response and stability of the sensor allows for long term accuracy, repeatability, low drift and high fidelity pressure measurements.
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-filled catheters and are generally more suitable for measuring intracardiac pressures from animal species with high intrinsic heart rates.
