NIBP System (for Mice)


The NIBP System is used in conjunction with a PowerLab system to obtain non-invasive blood pressure measurements from mice (with tail diameters 3-6 mm). It uses a specialized tail cuff and pulse transducer to intermittently measure blood pressure based on the periodic occlusion of tail blood flow.

The ML125/M system comes with a tail cuff and pulse transducer suitable for mice. The NIBP System outputs the pressure and pulse signals to a PowerLab via a BNC connection. LabChart software can be used to start the NIBP Controller at pre-set times. This is useful when the pulse is recorded continuously but blood pressure only needs to be sampled periodically.
