CODA High Throughput

"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 of fact, I've measured BP in the same range as in the invasive method using a catheter. I am very happy with your product."

Benefits of the CODA® tail-cuff blood pressure system:

  • Measures systolic, diastolic, and mean blood pressure as well as heart rate, tail blood volume and blood flow
  • Diastolic blood pressure is measured, not just calculated
  • Measures mice and rats as small as 8 grams and as large as 950 grams
  • Measures dark-skinned mice (C57BL/6) without difficulty
  • Measures awake or anesthetized animals with equal accuracy, consistency, and reliability
  • MRI compatible: Can measure anesthetized animals in a radiological environment
  • Can connect up to 6 high throughput controllers to measure up to 48 animals

The CODA mouse rat tail-cuff system was designed to allow accurate blood pressure measurement in mice and rats. Blood pressure is measured in the tail of the mouse or rat using Volume Pressure Recording (VPR) sensor technology. The included software allows you to continuously view data in real-time.

Seven studies are published every week using the CODA Noninvasive Blood Pressure system!

About Volume Pressure Recording (VPR)

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

CODA Nose Cone Animal HoldersSpecifically designed for noninvasive tail blood pressure measurements, the CODA NIBP system includes animal nose cone holders. These clear acrylic holders provide unrestricted breathing and allow complete visibility to the researcher.

VPR SensorsA specially designed differential pressure transducer measures the systolic and diastolic blood pressure by determining the blood volume in the tail. We have sizes for mice and rats from 8 grams to 950 grams.
