The ADInstruments Working Heart Foundation Systems combine the corresponding high-quality glass apparatus with a versatile PowerLab and LabChart data cquisition system for (mice and rats) working heart experiments. Benefits of these systems include:

  • Modular glass apparatus providing easy and straightforward fine adjustments including
    • Option to recirculate the perfusate
    • Measuring from multiple locations in the perfusion circuit 
  • LabChart Pro software providing powerful real-time and offline analysis features 
  • Freedom to tailor required measurements by selecting from a range of associated kits and accessories


  • 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/dtmax, dP/dtmin, LVEDP, ECG, heart rate and many others.
  • Complete water-jacketed perfusion circuit that prevents heat loss and maintains uniform temperature.
  • Crystal clear borosilicate glassware that is autoclavable.
  • Modular design that:
    • fully supports current and future modifications, customizations, additions.
    • allows easy maintenance and cleaning.
  • High quality Tygon perfusion tubing that prevents degassing of the perfusate during low-flow experiments. 
  • A water-jacketed reservoir maintains and gasses the perfusion solution or buffer.
  • A water-jacketed bubble trap to remove air bubbles from the flow.
  • A bench-top, general purpose, Thermal Bath/Circulator that allows temperature control in the range from ambient temperature to 120°C with a stability level of ± 0.05°C.
