The SPR-249A Mikro-Tip® pressure catheter provides optimal data for monitoring high-fidelity cardiovascular pressures at the source. 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.
