iWorx offers the Opsens Fiber Optic pressure catheters in sizes starting at 1.0F. These catheters are recommended for measuring pressure in small vessels as well as ventricular pressures in small rodents. They are also highly recommended for recording arterial and chamber pressures in large animals. Being fiberoptic, they are suited for MRI applications as well.
Fiber Optic catheters offer superior sensitivity and temporal resolution compared to ﬂuid-flled catheters and are generally more suitable for measuring intracardiac pressures from animal species with high intrinsic heart rates.
RS-IBPFOx Systems include:
- IX-404 Recorder
- 1F Fiber Optic Blood Pressure catheter
- LifeSens Amplifier
- LabScribe software
- Blood Pressure Analysis Module
Available in 1–4 channel confgurations.
For integrating the Blood Pressure Measurement with other parameters, consider the IX-RA-834 recorder, which is an expandable 10+ channel system. iWorx offer many customizable solutions for your cardio vascular needs.

LabScribe Blood Pressure Module
LS-30BP The LabScribe Blood Pressure Module acquires and analyzes data from blood pressure transducers. Data can be analyzed from ventricular and arterial signals in real-time. The software automatically calculates common indices of function from the blood pressure signal where it can easily be exported to another program for further analysis.
