Millar Mikro-Tip® pressure catheters provide an ideal solution for measuring highly accurate pressures. Whether measuring arterial and ventricular blood pressures, spinal pressures, tumor pressures or airway pressures, a high-fidelity pressure sensor from Millar is a necessity for your research.
- Single and multiple high-fidelity pressure sensors side mounted at the catheter tip
- Mice, rats and larger animal models such as pigs and sheep
- Sizes from 1 F to 5 F
- Straight and curved tips without pigtail
Catheters require Catheter Interface Cables for connection to any ADInstruments bridge amplifier . Record and analyse blood pressure data quickly and easily using the Blood Pressure Module that is included with LabChart Pro software. A Pressure Gauge kit which provides the necessary items to calibrate the Mikro-Tip® pressure transducer is available. Additionally, the purchase of an ESD Adjustable Wrist Strap w/ 10’ Coil Cord (Blue, 4mm Snap) is highly recommended to protect these catheters from electrostatic discharge (ESD) damage during handling.
Cost-effective Millar Mikro-Tip Catheters can be reused for multiple experiments. Our best selling catheters include SPR-320 for rats, SPR-671 for mice and the smallest sensor tip pressure catheter in the world, the SPR-1000, also for mice.
Non-repairable discount options are available for Pressure Catheters (SPR-407, SPR-320 and SPR-671 only). Contact us to find out more and if this is the right option for you. More information on Millar repair policies.
Millar Mikro-Tip Catheters require a certain level of care to ensure accuracy and the anticipated lifespan of your catheters. Tergazyme (Alconox, Inc.) is required for cleaning and ensuring the removal of proteinaceous soils, tissue, blood and body fluids from the catheter. Please refer to Alconox, Inc.’s website to purchase from your local supplier. For a few best practice tips to help get you started with your catheters, see our guide here.
Millar have recently simplified their range so that all pressure catheters now work with the Low Profile pressure connector cable, rather than the Viking cable.
Choose from single or dual pressure catheters.
