Millar Offers Implantable Pressure TransmittersJune 22, 2010
Through its partnership with Telemetry Research, Millar Instruments offers the fully implantable TRM53P pressure transmitter with digital data transmission and wireless inductive power charging.
HOUSTON, TX /PRNewswire/ -- Millar Instruments, Inc., a medical device manufacturing firm and developer of pressure sensing technology, has released the TRM53P implantable transmitter through the partnership with Telemetry Research, Ltd. The TRM53P is the world's first, fully implantable transmitter that combines Millar's gold standard solid-state pressure sensors with Telemetry Research's next generation telemetry technology.
The TRM53P provides high-fidelity pressure measurements that deliver accurate pressures including dP/dT and LVP. The solid-state sensor, mounted at the tip of the catheter, enables pressure to be measured in almost any location. Additionally, the sensor removes the need for gel and minimizes clotting.
This system is truly next generation due to the digital data transmission and wireless inductive power charging capabilities. The digital data transmission allows for a larger monitoring range and true cohabitation of multiple animals. Wireless inductive power charging enables 24/7 monitoring for the lifetime of the animal.
The device offers unprecedented long-term reliability, thus reducing overall cost. The integrated rechargeable battery means refurbishment is not required, allowing straightforward transmitter reuse with a simple cleaning of the device.
Applications may include cardiovascular, sleep research, toxicology, safety testing, neuroscience and behavioral studies. With the combination of next generation technology and solid state pressure sensors, the TRM53P is designed to redefine the standard in pressure monitoring.
