This APT300 Transducer is an inexpensive pressure transducer which can be used to measure arterial blood pressures in all species, even on mice with a high heart rate. This transducer is typically used for arterial pressure measurement in vivo, perfusion pressures in isolated perfused organs such as heart or kidney, Isovolumetric Left Ventricular (using a balloon) pressures in isolated hearts from mice up to rabbits or pigs.

  • Inexpensive, reliable and accurate
  • Low volume displacement
  • Suitable for virtually all arterial pressure applications
  • Easy to fill
  • Stopcocks included
  • Simple holder for rod mounting

The APT300 Transducer consists of a contact plate with cable and the exchangeable transducer head, which can easily be replaced. Contact plates with cables for different amplifiers are available.
