Diagnostics

BIOTRONIK provides fixed and deflectable diagnostic catheters as well as advanced mapping catheters to support our customers with the optimal solution even for challenging cardiac anatomies without compromising the signal quality. Together with our heart stimulator Qubic Stim we offer a complete portfolio for electrophysiological studies.

Diagnostic Catheter Family

Our diagnostic product portfolio includes various curve sized fixed catheters as well as steerable catheters with full 270° deflection capability. The Map-iT catheter, designed for pulmonary vein potential mapping, accomplishes the portfolio to diagnose atrial fibrillation. The Khelix variable loop catheters, manufactured by CathRX is designed to facilitate electrophysiological mapping of the heart.

Universal Heart Stimulator

The Qubic Stim enables the physician to reliably analyse the patients' cardiac electrical conduction system during an electrophysiological study by providing the diagnostic electrical stimulation e. g. for inducing or terminating an arrythmia. Due to its small footprint and modular design, physicians are able to integrate it seamlessly into their current cath lab practice.

ViaCath

Steerable diagnostic catheter


Product Details

The catheters of the ViaCath family are steerable and multipolar diagnostic catheters for intracardiac application. In combination with a stimulator and recording system, they are suited for functional diagnostics of the cardiac conduction system. They are used for programmed electrical stimulation (PES) and the acquisition of intracardiac electrograms (IEGM).The improved ViaCath product line offers outstanding pushability and torque transmission, high lateral tip stability and excellent signal quality, while setting new standards in efficient and reliable mapping in electrophysiologic diagnostics.

ViaCath and ViaCath NG models

The ViaCath product family includes ViaCath and ViaCath NG models with various curve sizes and electrode configurations.
ViaCath NG models represent catheters with 4 or 10 electrodes including different curve shapes and electrode spacings, whereas the ViaCath catheter has a 20 pole configuration and is provided in one curve shape. Depending on the intracardiac location and the required intracardiac signals the appropriate ViaCath device (i.e. number of electrodes, electrode spacing and catheter curve) can be selected by the physician. In general, the availability of various electrode numbers and catheter shapes allow the applicability of the ViaCath devices for highly specific diagnostic objectives.

MultiCath

Multipolar fixed curve catheter


Product Details

The catheters of the MultiCath family are pre-shaped and multipolar diagnostic catheters for intracardiac application. In combination with a stimulator and recording system, they are especially suited for functional diagnostics of the cardiac conduction system. They are used for programmed electrical stimulation (PES) and the acquisition of intracardiac electrograms (IEGM). The catheters provide placement accuracy, stiffness and flexibility.

MultiCath multipolar catheters for electrophysiological diagnostics allow fast, stable and constant positioning and good tissue contact, excellent torqueability and longitudinal stability. Their design characteristics ensure the optimum long-term stability of the catheter at body temperature, while the platinum/iridium electrodes deliver superior sensing capabilities and thus an outstanding signal quality.
