Single-Use Upper GI Manometry Catheters

Product Information - Single-Use Upper GI Manometry Catheters

Single-Use Catheters for GI  Manometry

Mediplus single-use gastrointestinal manometry catheters are ideal for all types of water-perfused manometry of the GI tract.

The range comprises single-channel, four-channel, eight-channel variants in external diameter sizes of 2.3mm, 3.2mm, 3.9mm, 4.5mm, and 4.9mm with a wide range of perfusion port configurations. All multi-lumen catheters (except Advantage Range - see below) have radiopaque markers at every eye (perfusion port) and black lines marked every centimetre to 75cm starting 1cm from the lumen nearest to the catheter tip.

Designed and priced for single-use - to remove risk of cross-infection, e.g. with Helicobacter Pylori, and exposure of staff to toxic chemicals used in cleaning  reusable catheters, they offer the following benefits:

  1. Multiple-channel measurement for a greater range of measurements possible than with microtips
  2. Transparent tubing, so that any air bubbles in the line will be visible
  3. Winged luer locks for secure connection to transducers
  4. Numbered centimetre markings for easy measurement
  5. Co-extruded stripe to locate channel one 

A small range of reusable catheters is also available.

Advantage Range products incorporate the latest techniques in manufacturing to offer cost effective advantages for these single-use manometry catheters. Features include a universal thermoplastic balloon that expands from 60-400ml to provide versatility with patients' needs, a syringe-activated check valve to maintain balloon inflation, and larger than standard markers at 1cm intervals from the lumen nearest to the catheter tip extend the entire length of the catheter.

These products are supplied clean, non-sterile.

NOTE:  Unless otherwise indicated, all catheters have open central lumen 
for guidewire insertion


If required, the following size guidewires can be used:

Catheter o.d. 2.3mm use guidewire 0.5mm
Catheter o.d. 3.2mm use guidewire 0.8mm
Catheter o.d. 3.9mm use guidewire 1.0mm

Mediplus Soft Oesophageal GI Catheter

Product code 2244-1SE

Mediplus Soft Oesophageal manometry catheter provides major benefits for both patients and user.  The unique softer material formulation ensures easier intubation and unlike silicone the surface characteristics of our catheter material does not snag (catch) on gloves. The catheter is soft yet not flaccid, so there is no need for an introducer or stiffener. This could provide the Clinician with the facility of intubation without the need for an assistant in attendance.
