- Product# SPR-877
PV Catheter (3F, 10E, 2.5mm, DField, 120cm)
The SPR-877 Millar ultra-miniature PV catheters have revolutionized cardiovascular research as their small size means that they can be inserted directly into the heart with no effect on normal functioning of the heart. Having a single catheter with the pressure sensor and electrodes allows for the simultaneous measurement of both ventricular pressure and volume from a continuously beating, intact heart.
The catheter requires the CEC-10E PV Cable for connection to the 880-0168 MPVS Ultra Pressure-Volume Unit (small or large animals) and can be used with the PL3516B49 MPVS Ultra Foundation System.
A Pressure Gauge kit which provides the necessary items to calibrate the pressure transducers is available. Please contact your nearest ADInstruments representative for any further information.
