Transducers are sensors that convert biological signals into electrical analog signals. The analog signal is then digitized using a PowerLab DAQ. We offer a wide range of pressure and force transducers for research applications including blood pressure, telemetry, temperature and respiratory measurements.
Pressure CathetersMillar Mikro-Tip® solid state catheters with pressure sensor(s) provide high-fidelity cardiovascular pressures (the heart and vascular system) at the source in small animals. These catheters are ideal for intrauterine, intracranial and arterial blood pressure monitoring, amongst other research applications.
Disposable BP TransducersThe Disposable Blood Pressure (BP) Transducers are designed to give consistent and accurate readings of arterial and venous blood pressure measurements in animals of all sizes.
