Sm. Animal Tail Noninvasive BP Amplifier
Part #: NIBP200A

The NIBP200A small animal tail noninvasive blood pressure amplifier incorporates a built-in pump that automatically inflates the blood pressure cuff to occlude the vessel in the tail of a rat or similar small animal. Once the pump reaches the inflation point it slowly deflates the cuff, providing a linear drop in pressure. A single pushbutton controls both the inflation and deflation cycles, making the system very operator friendly.

With a different Platform



The cuff assembly attaches to the amplifier via a Luer lock connector and the Piezo pulse sensor attaches via a BNC connector. The amplifier unit also has a gain adjustment control to amplify or attenuate the pulse signal. The amplifier provides two analog outputs for pressure and pulse waveforms.

Each NIBP200A system includes:

  • 1 – amplifier unit (switching power supply works for 110 V or  220 V)
  • 1 – cuff/sensor (size 11 mm is included, but can be specified as 9.5 mm or 13 mm when ordering)
  • 1 – restrainer (size medium is included, but can be specified as small or large when ordering)
  • 1 – Pulse cable to MP System or third-party A/D hardware
  • 1 – Pressure cable to MP System or third-party A/D hardware

Setup and calibration details are in the Hardware Guide (under Help in the BIOPAC software or online under Manuals).

Optional accessories

  • Tail Heating Unit TAILHEATING-A (110 V 60 Hz) or TAILHEATING-B (220 V 50 Hz)
  • Tail Cuff Sensors for MRI (9.5 mm, 11 mm, or 13 mm  — add to an existing NIBP200A system)
