This Pressure and Ultrasound Transit Time blood flow measurement workshop hosted in Almere, The Netherlands teaches attendees to collect high quality blood pressure and blood flow data in rodents. It is available by special request only.


The goal of this workshop is to teach attendees the ins and outs of solid state pressure technology and Ultrasound Transit Time based absolute volume blood flow measurements while optimizing their microsurgical skills. Since the number of applications in rodent studies is endless, there is no predefined program. Transonic’s perivascular flow probes have been around for 30 years, so there is no blood vessel that they have not worked with. Let them know what your goals are and they will create a program for you.


This course is designed for scientists and technicians who are both new to rodent pressure and blood flow recording techniques as well as those who are experienced and wish to refine their techniques. While the course language will be presented in English, the course instructors are also versed in Dutch, German and French. Therefore, one-to-one instruction can take place in multiple languages.


A two or three-day course can be customized, depending on your entry level and goals, to provide surgical skills and Pressure and Flow measurements experience to apply in your own lab for € 1320 (2 day) or € 1980 (3 day) (excl VAT). Course fee includes all course materials, coffee & tea, lunch and a group dinner on Day One. Participants will receive a certificate of training (recognized in most EU countries). If there is a preference to work with a specific species (mouse or rat), please indicate this on the registration form.

Do not make travel plans until receiving confirmation that the workshop has enough participants to take place. Course dates will be determined in good correspondence with the participants.

Workshop seating is limited to 8 participants, a minimum of 3 participants is required. Transonic reserves the right to cancel and/or reschedule/combine workshop programs for a later date.
