RS-IBPFOx-RA Expandable Fiber Optic Catheter, BP System

iWorx Fiber Optic Invasive BP system is designed for measuring pressures in animals from mice and other rodents to larger animals. This system can be expanded to measure other parameters such as ECG, EMG, as well as stimulation.

iWorx offers the Opsens Fiber Optic pressure catheters in sizes starting at 1.0F. 

Advantages:

  • Small 1.0F cathers suitable for Mice and larger animals
  • Since they are fiberoptic, they are suited for MRI applications.
  • High frequency response, making it the most sensitive and precise method for the monitoring of arterial pressure and for analysis of changes in the phasic arterial pressure waveform.
  • Superior sensitivity and temporal resolution compared to fluid-filled catheters make them more suitable for measuring intra-cardiac pressures from animal species with high intrinsic heart rates.
  • Unlike the fluid filled catheters, solid state catheters do not require flushing and do not have the problem of decreasing signal intensity with increasing catheter length.
  • Available in 1-4 channel configurations.
