The Compact Langendorff system was developed for in vitro investigations of the hearts of small animals in constant pressure and/or flow modes. Even though the system occupies a small amount of bench space, it contains all the features of non-working (Langendorff) and working perfusion systems in a single, compact, thermostatically controlled unit.
- Real-time calcium imaging
- Fluid columns replaced by electronically adjusted flow control to keep the pressure at desired values from 0-500mmHg
- Langendorff and working heart perfusion modes
- Fluid columns are replaced by electronically adjusted flow control to keep the pressure at desired values from 0-500mmHg
- Lagendorff and working heart perfusion modes
- Real-time calcium imaging available
- Compact, all-in-one unit thermostatically controlled to 0.1°C degree
- Four 500mL saline reservoirs which can easily be connected to create 2L and 1L volumes
- Special heart suspension module
- Muscle action potential (MAP) sensors sized for mouse, rat, guinea-pig and rabbit hearts
- Capability to measure the following parameters: muscle action potentials (MAP), left ventricular pressure (LVP), perfusion pressure, coronary flow, buffer temperature, heart rate (HR), ECG, surface potentials, muscular tone and force with force-displacement method
- Capabilitiy of pacing and stimulation can be added
