Background

  • Reliable pressure generator, providing smooth, stepless pressure build-up.
  • Essentially a “Riva Rocci sphygmomanometer” that provides a precise recording of the systolic and diastolic blood pressure. Works by transmitting pressure to the tail cuff to obtain accurate systolic and diastolic pressure readings that are digitally printed in 10 mm Hg steps. The animal pulse rate can be assessed in real time by a pulse rate counter, which picks the signal from the pulse transducer.

 Multi function, non-invasive recorder

  • Combines functionality of multiple systems in a single turn-key, stand-alone solution:
    • A pressure generation-pressure monitoring system
    • A pulse amplifier 
    • A thermal-array analog and digital recording unit 
    • Pulse rate measuring and recording
  • Microprocessor controlled functions to self-diagnosis, calibration, signal filtering, signal storage.
  • Wide range of tail transducer sizes (4-18 mm) adapts to small to medium sized animals (mice-dogs).
  • Embedded graphic printer, internal memory and PC output.
  • Can be connected to popular data acquisition systems including our DataCapsule-Evo Recorder.
  • A mouse or rat restrainer is provided with each package.
  • Optional animal restrainers by Ugo Basile are available featuring conical “muzzle” for confining the head, availability in 4 different diameters to fit various animal sizes with telescope-adjustable length, a quick fit/release back lid with an ample U-shaped tail slot, ventilation slots and selection of heat conductive materials to guarantee body heat dissipation. Ask for details.
  • Optional rodent temperature controlled heating boxes available for rats and mice. The air temperature can be set from room temperature to 39.9°C, in 0.1°C steps.
