We report the development of a diamond anvil cell to study the ac susceptibility of ceramic superconductors to pressures above 10 GPa. Highly densified helium is used as pressure medium. The superconducting transition is detected inductively by a miniature coil system. Results on both Y1Ba2Cu3O7 and Bi2Ca1Sr2Cu2O8+y with different oxygen content y are presented and discussed within the context of pressure induced charge transfer.
