CODA Surgical Monitor

"I found the manuals, software, and equipment very user friendly, and I have not had any problems collecting blood pressure data in mice. As a matter, I've measured BP in the same range as in the invasive method using a catheter. I am very happy with your product."

  • 6 blood pressure parameters: systolic, diastolic, and mean BP, heart rate, tail blood volume and blood flow
  • mice as small as 8 grams to rats as large as 950 grams
  • diastolic blood pressure measured, not just a calculated value
  • dark-skinned mice (C57BL/6) without difficulty
  • awake or anesthetized animals with equal accuracy, consistency, and reliability
  • anesthetized animals in a radiological environment - MRI Compatibility

The CODA mouse and rat tail-cuff system was designed to allow you to accurately measure mouse blood pressure and rat blood pressure. The CODA tail-cuff blood pressure system utilizes Volume Pressure Recording (VPR) sensor technology to measure the mouse or rat tail blood pressure.

VPR recording is clinically validated and provides 99% correlation with telemetry and direct blood pressure measurements. Only our VPR technology is based on mouse and rat tail blood volume and can actually measure the diastolic blood pressure. All other tail-cuff technologies estimate (calculate) the diastolic blood pressure in mice and rats.

 when compared to photoplethysmography (PPG).

CODA Nose Cone Animal HoldersThe animal nose cone holders that accompany the CODA NIBP system were specifically designed for  noninvasive tail blood pressure measurements. The clear acrylic holders provide unrestricted breathing  and allow complete visibility to the researcher.

VPR SensorsThe VPR sensor incorporates a specially designed differential pressure transducer that measures the systolic and diastolic blood pressure by determining the blood volume in the tail. We have sizes for mice as small as 8 grams to rats as large as 950 grams.

The CODA Noninvasive Blood Pressure Monitor includes one each of the following:

  •     NIBP Controller
  •     Far infrared warming pad, 8"x10"
  •     Infrared thermometer
  •     Cuff kit (*size to be defined at time of order)
  •     Cardiovascular Genomics textbook
  •     Product manual
*Each system includes one free cuff kit. Please specify the size animal you'll work with in the Instructions at time of order.
Also included is a 10-pack of disposable sleeve protectors for the far infrared warming pad. Additional sleeve protectors are available in 50-packs under the reorder code DCT-1520P.
If you are interested in analyzing your data, tracking animals or groups of animals, assigning animals to specific researchers or technicians you can upgrade the CODA Monitor to include the CODA Data Acquisition Software. The CODA Software allows you to save each reading in both numeric and graphical representation, easily create experiment summary reports and provides a place to store and save all of your data. You have the ability to identify and group animals, assign animals to researchers and accept or reject blood pressure measurements after the experiment. The CODA Software is compatible with Windows® 7 & 8, 32 bit or 64 bit.
