Small Mammal Pressure Catheters

The Millar Mikro-Tip® pressure catheters for small mammals provide optimal data for monitoring high-fidelity cardiovascular pressures at the source. They are reusable - non-sterile and are your state-of-the-art solution for left ventricular, right ventricular and systemic blood pressure measurements in rabbit-sized small animal models.

Their high-frequency response enhances your ability to collect the highest quality data possible, including the most accurate dP/dt values, streamlining your path to publication.

With a Nylon catheter body of 2.2F and a 3F pressure sensor, the SPR-249A offers increased flexibility for users who prefer a less stiff catheter option during surgical placement. The SPR-595 Mikro-Tip® incorporates a curved tip into the SPR-249A design for increased access to the right ventricle, making it the preferred solution for right ventricular blood pressure measurements in rabbit-sized animal models.

The SPR-524 features advanced sensor design and is capable of providing continuous high fidelity pressure measurement for up to seven days.

Available Models

Small Mammal Pressure Catheters

SPR-330A

The SPR-330A provides an excellent choice for hemodynamic pressure studies in the rabbit sized small animal model. The thrombo-resistant nylon pressure catheter has a single pressure sensor that is side mounted at the tip. The catheter has a straight tip and an effective length of 130 cm. 

The SPR-330A complements a standard entry level rabbit sized hemodynamics system consisting of the SPR-249A or SPR-882 pressure catheter, PCU-2000 pressure control unit, PowerLab 35 Series data acquisition system with LabChart Pro and the Blood Pressure analysis module.

SPR-882

The SPR-882 Mikro-Tip® pressure catheter incorporates a non-ferrous sensor case into the design of the SPR-249A pressure catheter. This minimizes the image artifact visible when the catheter is incorporated into studies requiring blood pressure measurement during MR imaging.

With a Nylon catheter body of 2.2F and a 3.5F pressure sensor, this model offers increased flexibility for users who prefer a less stiff catheter option during surgical placement.

The SPR-882 complements a standard entry level rabbit sized hemodynamics system consisting of the SPR-249A or SPR-330A pressure catheter, PCU-2000 pressure control unit, PowerLab 35 Series data acquisition system with LabChart Pro and the Blood Pressure analysis module. Or for the most complete cardiovascular analysis solution for your lab, combine the SPR-882 with the MPVS Ultra® Pressure-Volume Loop system and a small animal multi-segment pressure-volume catheter.

SPR-524

Designed for animal research, the SPR-524 features advanced sensor design for maximum durability, drift of less than 3 mmHg per 24 hours and a versatile 3.5 French tip. This low-cost reusable catheter offers an affordable option to researchers requiring continuous high fidelity pressure measurement for up to seven days. The SPR-524 is often used to monitor pressures in the left atrium or ventricle, but it may also be used in a variety of other animal research applications.

NOTE: The SPR-524 is non-repairable and is warranted for 30 days against defects in materials and workmanship.

SPR-249A

The SPR-249A is the state-of-the-art solution for left ventricular, right ventricular and systemic blood pressure measurements in rabbit-sized small animal models. The high frequency response enhances your ability to collect the highest quality data possible including the most accurate dP/dt values, streamlining your path to publication.

Along with the SPR-330A, the SPR-249A is one of Millar’s most popular catheters for performing hemodynamic pressure studies in the rabbit sized small animal model. With a Nylon catheter body of 2.2F and a 3F pressure sensor, this model offers increased flexibility for users who prefer a less stiff catheter option during surgical placement.

For an entry level small animal hemodynamics system, use the SPR-249A pressure catheter with the PCU-2000 pressure control unit, PowerLab 35 Series data acquisition system with LabChart Pro and the Blood Pressure analysis module. Or for the most complete cardiovascular analysis solution for your lab, combine the SPR-249A with the MPVS Ultra® Pressure-Volume Loop system and a small animal multi-segment pressure-volume catheter.
