Advanced systems for studying smooth, skeletal and CARDIAC muscle
WIRE MYOGRAPH SYSTEMS
Examine functional responses and vascular reactivity of isolated small vessels to agonists such as drugs or hormones. Ideal for high throughput work such as repetitive concentration-response curves.
Mount small vessels as ring preparations by threading them onto two stainless steel or tungsten wires and securing the wires to two supports.
Multi Wire Myograph System – 620M
Automated Multi Wire Myograph System – 630MA
Automates the normalization procedure for easy setting of calculations and preload tension for improved accuracy and repeatability.
Single Wire Myograph System – 320A
Ideal for studying a single vessel with a diameter of 60μm – 3mm.
Confocal Wire Myograph System – 360CW
Provides close-up optical access to a mounted artery or tissue segment for high-resolution images of fluorescent dyes or markers by laser scanning confocal microscopy (LSCM).
PRESSURE MYOGRAPH SYSTEMS
DMT’s systems (Pressure Pulsation Myograph 112PP (as pictured) and Pressure Myograph System 114P) measure the physiological function and properties of small arteries, veins and other vessels. The systems enable the study of the pharmacological effects of drugs and other vasoactive compounds on small isolated vessels under near-physiological conditions.
The system includes powerful MyoVIEW software features easy, flexible live diameter tracking of perfused arteries.
MUSCLE STRIP MYOGRAPH SYSTEMS
DMT’s newest line of myograph systems measures the myo-mechanical properties of strips of solid muscle. The tissue is held by clamps that can be custom made to meet customer needs. Inherent to striated muscle is the need for reliable electrical current stimulation. The DMT stimulators are designed to provide this reliable current source.
TISSUE ORGAN BATH SYSTEMS FOR EDUCATION & RESEARCH
The compact DMT Starter and Ultra tissue organ bath systems have removed complexities experienced using traditional water-jacketed organ baths.
The innovative, easy to use systems are boosting learning outcomes by engaging science students as they learn about pharmacological and physiological concepts. The Ultra system is also suitable for research.
