HOUSTON, July 1 Millar Instruments, Inc. developer andmanufacturer of Mikro-Tip(R) pressure transducer catheters and pressure-volume(P-V) systems and Telemetry Research Ltd, developer and manufacturer oftelemetry systems for monitoring physiological signals in freely movinglaboratory animals, today announced they entered into a worldwide distributionagreement.
Telemetry Research provides wireless measurement of blood pressure, neuraland other biopotential signals from rats and larger animals. The inductivelypowered implanted sensors and digital communication techniques providesignificant benefits to the researcher such as lowering total cost oftelemetry and enabling new research methodologies.
"As the gold standard in high fidelity pressure measurements, MillarInstruments is pleased to recommend and support the sale of TelemetryResearch's products to its established customer base in universities, researchhospitals and pharma/biotech companies worldwide. We are impressed with theadvantages that this technology provides to the researcher and what TelemetryResearch has accomplished," said Tim Daugherty, Director, Cardiology Productsat Millar Instruments.
