Working heart systems

Features

  • A water-jacketed mouse heart chamber and water-jacketed perfusion lines to ensure that the perfusate solution and the isolated heart are maintained at a constant temperature.
  • An 8-channel PowerLab 8/35, which is ideal for recording data from isolated heart experiments.
  • Multiple parameters can be analyzed and displayed using LabChart and LabChart Pro software, including: LVP, dP/dt, Max and Min dP/dt, LVEDP, ECG, heart rate and many others.
  • Advantages of the Radnoti workingheart systems include:
    - modular construction enables easy updating/substitution of chamber sizes,
    - water-jacketed heart chambers and tubing ensures uniform circulation and heating,
    - threaded cap on High-Tech Heart Chamber minimizes temperature loss and features locking ports for cannulae and additional measuring devices,
    - may be used in single-pass perfusion or recirculation modes,
    - easy-to-use "Quick Disconnect" fittings.
