The MPR-500 Mikro-Tip® large animal pressure catheter provides a more flexible option for monitoring high-fidelity cardiovascular pressures at the source. The MPR-500 catheter’s high frequency response and flexible design make this model popular for both in vivo and in vitro applications where a stiffer catheter is not required. Because this model is made from a more flexible 5F polyurethane, the MPR-500 is often incorporated into non-cardiovascular applications such as airway pressure, swallowing pressure and bladder pressure measurements.
For an entry level hemodynamic or bench-top system, use the MPR-500 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 MPR-500 with the MPVS Ultra® Pressure-Volume Loop system and a Ventri-Cath PV loop catheter.
